In celebration of Leeds College of Music’s 50th Anniversary IFAI presents iFIMPaC 2016.
Thursday, 10 March 2016 and Friday, 11 March 2016
Keynote speakers and performers to be announced soon.
The International Festival for Innovations in Music Production and Composition is a metropolitan festival and takes place at Leeds College of Music and venues around the City of Leeds.
The festival creates a unique environment for composers, producers, performers, academics and students to perform and discuss their compositional/production work as practice-led research. This year’s event will continue its association with Nonclassical where we will be running a Nonclassical club night.
Solo instrument and fixed medium and/or live electronics*
*we may be able to supply performers in some instances, but you should consider acquiring your own performers as iFIMPaC’s budget is small.
50 second audio visual works to be played as part of an installation (must be precisely 50 seconds)**
Format (MOV or MP4); H264 video codec; ACC audio codec (stereo); between 720 and 1080p
**selected 50 second video works will be played back-to-back as part of an audio-visual installation.
The following are welcome, but this is not an exhaustive list:
New Music: composition practice and plurality
‘Shifting’ practices in electroacoustic music
Electroacoustic music and hybridity
Electroacoustic music and analysis
Approaches to live coding
Unique interfaces and approaches to performance
Composition systems and techniques
The shifting relationships between spaces and places in music production practice
Dispersed creativity and how people are collaborating as a result of new technologies
Production analysis and innovative approaches: music technology in a commercial and/or academic settings
Preference will be given to topics that include interdisciplinary approaches that inform new insights into the creative applications of music technology, compositional methodology and/or production. Individual presentations should be no more than 20 minutes in duration (there will be a further five minutes for questions).
Successful applicants will need to register and pay a delegate fee in order to be programmed.
