[E] The Canadian Electroacoustic Community (CEC) is now accepting submissions for an upcoming issue of eContact! exploring and presenting various practices that forge a link between sonic performance and light. We are pleased to announce Nicolas Bernier as Guest Editor for eContact! 19.3.

Light and the shadow that accompanies it have long been sources of fascination, whether for painters, architects or philosophers, or for children fleeing monsters. In recent years, this fascination with light has grown amongst sound artists (composers, performers, multidisciplinary artists, etc.). Motivated by the increasing accessibility of new technologies, these artists integrate luminosity within their artistic practices with surprising ease.
From the Ocular Harpsichord imagined by Louis Bertrand Castel in 1725 to Scriabin’s symphonic work for orchestra and clavier à lumières (“Prometheus: The Poem of Fire”) to Iannis Xenakis’ Polytopes through to contemporary audio-luminous experiments undertaken by Kurt Hentschlager, Matthijs Munnik, Nonotak, Robin Fox or Chris Salter… these are the types of relationships between Sound+Light that this issue of eContact! aims to “bring to light.”

eContact! is a freely available online journal for electroacoustic practices published four times a year by the Canadian Electroacoustic Community (CEC).

Composer and multidisciplinary artist Nicolas Bernier was awarded the prestigious Golden Nica in Digital Musics & Sound Art at the 2013 Prix Ars Electronica for his work “frequencies (a)”.
