Contemporary Music Lab wishes to all of you a very happy and creative new year. We would like to inform you that we have received 241 compositions for our Second International Iannis Xenakis Competition from 41 countries! The artistic and technical level of the submitted pieces is outstanding and the jury is having a really hard reviewing work ahead! We are going to organise special events dedicated to Iannis Xenakis in April. Special guests will be there so stay tuned with us!
In an attempt to encourage the creation and diffusion of new electroacoustic works and in order to pay tribute to Iannis Xenakis, a pillar figure in the field of electronic music, Contemporary Music Lab of Aristotle University is organizing the Second International Electroacoustic Composition Competition IANNIS XENAKIS.
Our second competition comes after a succesful organization of our first competition two years ago, which tuned out to be a real celebration of modern electronic music. We did receive 270 pieces from all over around the world and we had the honour to host two concerts featuring works of Xenakis, Dennis Smalley as well as pieces from all jury members and the winning compositions.
This year he will also have an excellent jury chaired by Trevor Wishart. We hope we will get again works of very high artistic level and we are looking forward to perform them in our future concerts.
