Viel submitted for XXIIth International Conference on Electroacoustic Music, CCEC

Following the recent CIME call for works, at which Ambrose Seddon’s Traces of Play was put forward, BEAN have received news that the Universidad Nacional de Córdoba y el CCEC (Centro Cultural España Córdoba) are organizing the XXIIth International Conference on Electroacoustic Music – Virginie Viel’s La Dame Blanches has been proposed; this submission from DMU was rated second by the international jury, and is a suitable length for the call. More information to follow in due course…

Seddon selected for CIME

Thank you ever so much to everyone who sent submissions to the recent call for works. Three international reviewers kindly gave up their time to consider submissions (Elizabeth Anderson, Felipe Otondo, and Laurie Radford) and we are delighted to announce that Ambrose Seddon’s ‘Traces of Play’ will represent the British ElectroAcoustic Network’s submission to the CIME AGM in Beijing 2018.
Each reviewer (quite independently) mentioned the extremely high level of work submitted, and all spoke of the difficulties in making a selection – it is therefore a pity that we are only able to present one piece this year.
Congratulations to Ambrose Seddon!

BEAN selections for CIME AGM

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.

Call for Institutional Members

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…

BEAN becomes member of CIME

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.
