Each year, the International Confederation of Electroacoustic Music (CIME) hosts an annual general meeting. This year, the meeting is taking place at the Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory, Sept 25th – 28th. As a CIME member, the British ElectroAcoustic Network was eligible to submit up to 20 minutes of music. Following a ‘call for works’, an international jury assembled by BEAN selected three pieces to represent the British submission:
- Skyline by Andrew Lewis
- Topophilia by Nikos Stavropoulos
- Abstracted Journeys by Andrew Hill
We are very pleased to announce that all three of these works have been scheduled for performance in Moscow at the end of the month. We are extremely grateful to Rodrigo Sigal and Felipe Otondo for reviewing submissions on behalf of BEAN.

In recent months, a number of institutional members have joined BEAN (listed on the ‘members’ section of the website). If you would like to become an institutional member, please get in touch via the ‘contact’ form on this site and you will be added to both the mailing list and the website. At present, there is no fee or membership requirement, but we do ask that you disseminate information from BEAN to others within your institution.
We hope that the call for institutional members shall be followed by a call for individuals at some point in the near future…
The British ElectroAcoustic Network has become a candidate member of the International Confederation of Electroacoustic Music (CIME/ICEM). Membership was approved by the General Assembly of CIME during their annual conference, held at CMMAS, Morellia, Mexico, in October 2016. By joining CIME, we have now achieved one of the major objectives of this network, and look forward to working closely with our international colleagues in the coming months and years.
We are pleased to announce the launch of BEAN – British ElectroAcoustic Network! In the coming days and weeks, this site will be (gradually) populated and, once complete, a call for membership shall be posted…
Watch this space…
