New Music Scotland


New Music Scotland is hosting “In Cahoots”, a Conference on collaborations between new music and other art forms on the 23rd and 24th October 2015 in Aberdeen during the sound festival. Within the Conference there will be curated performances and showings of new collaborative work, and there will also be a limited number of slots available to feature new music and sound art created and performed by Scottish practitioners.

We invite Scottish or Scottish based artists to submit completed projects for consideration. We welcome submissions of performances, sound installations, new media projects etc. The submissions do not need to be cross-art form, although any cross-art form submissions will be particularly welcome. There are a limited number of slots, so we would welcome shorter submissions, of approximately 15-30 minutes. We would also prefer submissions to be as technically self-sufficient as possible.

Attendance is an essential requirement if selected.

Please provide, in compressed electronic format (e.g., .zip), all relevant information/materials for the realization of the project. Contact details must also be provided.

Please send by email to

Unfortunately we will be unable to pay fees for the showcase, but will cover travel and accommodation costs, and the showcase participants will be given free delegate passes for the Conference.


Deadline for submissions: 31st July 2015
