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 at Aristotle University is organizing the Second International Electroacoustic Composition Competition IANNIS XENAKIS.
Our second competition comes after the successful organization of our first competition two years ago. We did receive 270 pieces from all around the world and we had the honour to present two concerts featuring works of Xenakis, Dennis Smalley (chair of the jury) as well as pieces from other jury members and the winning composers.
This year he will 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.
