SCI Region II Student Mix Tape - Call for Recordings

Deadline: Dec. 12, 2014
Fee: None
Open to: All student composers in New York, New Jersey, and Puerto Rico

The Society of Composers, Inc. (SCI) will be compiling a series of online “Mix Tapes” showcasing recordings from student composers across various regions.  These recordings will be curated into a collection and made available on the SCI website (, to promote and highlight the depth and variety of new music being created by students nationwide.  One Mix Tape will be created for each of SCI’s nine geographic regions.  The present call is limited to Region II.
Students at any point in their academic career are eligible to submit up to two recordings for consideration.  As this call is specific to SCI’s Region II, composers must reside in or attend school in New York, New Jersey, or Puerto Rico.  

Works under 10 minutes in length are preferred, though longer works will be considered as space allows.  There are no restrictions in regard to style, but MIDI realizations of pieces intended for live instruments will not be accepted.   

Membership in SCI is encouraged, but not required.

A complete application will include the following:
  • Name, school, degree program, and the state where you reside
