CUBE Fest 2016: Massively Multichannel Music is now accepting proposals. The festival will take place at Virginia Tech on August 6 & 7, 2016.

December 5, 2015 in All Opportunities, Composers, electroacoustic by mwhiteside

This festival will focus on music for high-density loudspeaker arrays (HDLA), with 24 or more channels. All proposals sent in a format that allows for multichannel audition will be reviewed in the intended multichannel format. Our programming will favor works that create spatial effects that are not possible in lower order multichannel formats such as octophonic, 5.1, or stereo. We are interested to present a very broad stylistic range of music. We are willing to take risks with audacious proposals that might push the boundaries of spatial audio experience. For further details please see the link below. Submission deadline is January 30th, 2016.
