Call for Electronic Music!

Vox Novus is inviting composers/sound artists to submit recorded works 60 seconds or less in length to be included in its ninth annual 60x60 project. 60 compositions will be selected to be played continuously in a one-hour concert.


60x60 is a one-hour-long show made by sequencing 60 pre-recorded pieces by 60 different composers, each piece a minute in length or shorter. Highlighting the work of a great many composers, 60x60 testifies to the vibrancy of contemporary composition by present a diverse array of styles, aesthetics, and techniques being used today (http://www.voxnovus.com/60x60). 60x60 has received thousands of submissions from over 30 countries, produced radio shows, created multimedia and multidisciplinary events, and released several albums.


During the concert each of the 60 pieces selected will begin precisely at the beginning of the minute, this will mark the end of one piece and the beginning of another. There will be no pause between the pieces. Works may be less than 60 seconds in length, but may not exceed 60 seconds. Works selected that are less than 60 seconds long will be “padded” with silence either before, after, or surrounding the composition. Please note that the total duration of the work including silence may NOT exceed sixty seconds.


The 60x60 project’s definition of a record work is as follows: any work created as a musical composition which is captured on recorded media, which does not require live performers for its production in broadcast at concert halls, radio, multi-media, etc. Its creation can include but not limited to acoustic instruments, voice, environmental sources, and computer (Sampling, MAX MSP, MIDI, C Sound, ProTools, etc.)

All works submitted should be with the understanding that it is their recording that is of prime importance and is what will be used to determine its selection.


60x60 is a project of “signature works” and short works created specifically for the 60x60 project. Excerpts of larger works are strongly discouraged. Works generated from procedures (i.e. mathematical matrices, organizational systems, or computer programs,) remixed works, or themes and motives recomposed from other of the composer's own work are acceptable.


In addition to the 60x60 International Mix, Vox Novus and the Athena Festival are joining forces to create the 60x60 Athena Mix. This special 60x60 Athena Mix will be comprised of 60 electronic compositions 60 seconds (or less) in length by 60 women composers and sound artists. All women composers will be considered for both the 60x60 International Mix and the 60x60 Athena Mix.

The call is open to composers of any nationality, age, or career stage.

Deadline for 60 second compositions for 60x60 is December 31, 2010.
