Announcing the Third Competition Iannis Xenakis

In a grey, devastating mood, we announce today our Third International Competition of Electronic Music “Iannis Xenakis” . Unfortunately our announcement is coming amidst a world-wide, life-threatening pandemic of the COVID-19 virus. Since in all world, very austere measures and lockdowns are taking place, maybe its a good time for staying at home, contemplating and being creative while protecting the sensitive groups of people around.

This competition is a very special one since it coincides with the 20 years comemoration of Xenakis. We are proud of having with us an excellent jury of higly acclaimed composers chaired by a legendary figure in electroacoustic music: Annette Vande Gorne.

We wish to all of the electroacoustic community, and everybody out there, staying safe and we are looking forward to receiving exciting new works!
