Online electroacoustic collaborative composition

a research project

Call for participants


After previous research projects on online instrumental music learning and online composition in virtual environments (Biasutti, 2015a, 2015b)[1], a new project is lunched. The research project “Online electroacoustic collaborative composition” aims to analyse electroacoustic music composing processes in an online collaborative environment. We are looking for electroacoustic composers interested in contributing to this study. We offer an original and interesting experience: an online environment for developing a new project and sharing ideas with new colleagues. We also guarantee the support of tutors who may help participants in the use of the platform and tools. The music pieces realised will be analysed for research purposes and presented to the international scientific community. The participants:

1.    should have at least 5 years of experience in electroacoustic music composition;

2.    will work on a collaborative project for creating a new electroacoustic music piece during about 1 month;

3.    will work only online, using an online composing platform and discussing their progresses with colleagues.

The project will start on February 2016. Composers and students who are interested in participating to this study should send an up-to-date curriculum vitae to the attention of Dr. Eleonora Concina, e-mail address, by January 15th 2016. The selected applicants will be informed by e-mail by January 25th 2016.
