On the Air: Call for sound pieces
MuseRuole is a festival dedicated to experimental music and puts contemporary female musicians and performers at its centre. It is a journey of discovery into the wide world of current musical research, looking for specifically female modes of expression, with its own grammar and personal style. This year (2013) we focus on the theme of radio as a space for musical research and a medium of technological innovation, including notions of sending and receiving in equal measure. MuseRuole – Radio Edition invites female artists, composers and musicians to participate in the ‘virtual jukebox on the air”. To submit, please send us a short composition, field recording or excerpt of a longer work (maximum length: 5 minutes). The selected works will become part of this year’s edition of MuseRuole and will be introduced at Museion – Passage (Museum of modern and contemporary art, Bozen – IT)on 5th June 2013. They will also me made available for download via soundcloud. In addition, they will be played via Radia, an international network of 24 independent stations, on national and local radio stations. Last but not least from 7th-30t June 2013 they will be part of a listening station at the Women’s Museum in Meran, Italy. For more information, please visit the website below.

Giga-Hertz-Award for electronic music
Giga-Hertz-Award for Sound Art – Sound as medium of visual arts
In 2007, the ZKM | Institute for Music and Acoustics and the SWR EXPERIMENTALSTUDIO inaugurated the annual Giga-Hertz-Award for electronic music. The Giga-Hertz-Award aims at composers working in the fields of electronic and acousmatic music. With a total prize money of 94.000 € the Giga-Hertz-Award for electronic music and – for the first time – sound art is one of the most highly endowed awards of the genre. A Grand Prize and four Special Prizes are awarded once a year by an international jury.
For the first time awards will also be given in the category “Sound Art – Sound as medium of visual arts”. Next to a Grand Prize for lifetime achievement endowed with 15.000 €, up to four Special Prizes worth 8.000 € each will be awarded. Honored will be works that break up the time limitation and linear structure of music and complement the tonal with visual and spatial elements, e.g. a sound installation, a sound sculpture etc.
The four internationally oriented Special Prizes of 8.000 € aim to initiate and support new projects, and are geared to composers of electronic and acousmatic music.
In 2013 again innovative ideas within the field of electronic and acousmatic music will be honored. The application takes place in two steps:
A reference piece not older than five years and not longer than 20 minutes should be submitted. This work forms the basis of the valuation for the jury and should clearly make use of electronic, technical means. It also should be ensured that such a piece could be performed without much technical effort.
For the work that is to be realized, it is desirable to submit a project design.
Some of the reference pieces of the awardees will be presented during the IMATRONIC Festival in November 2013. The new compositions and works will be presented for the first time within the framework of the IMATRONIC Festival to be held at the ZKM in the autumn of 2014. Any further information on how to apply can be found here: www.giga-hertz-preis.de
The Grand Prize of 15.000 € honors the artistic achievements of outstanding composers and is not awarded as part of a public competition but, selected by jury nomination.
The Giga-Hertz-Award is granted in honor of the world-famous physicist Heinrich Hertz (1857–1894), who taught at the Karlsruhe technical university where he discovered electromagnetic waves at the end of the nineteenth century.
The award for electronic and acousmatic composition is unique in Germany and underlines the importance of electronic music: the award is supported by the most important German studios for electronic music: the SWR EXPERIMENTALSTUDIO in Freiburg and the ZKM | Institute for Music and Acoustics (IMA) in Karlsruhe.
The Giga-Hertz-Award for Sound Art is an initiative of the ZKM | Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologie.
The upcomming Avgarde concert features Electric Audio Unit (Natasha Barrett/Ewa Jacobsson/Anders Vinjar), Sofya Dudaeva & Per Inge Hove, a new piece by Alwynne Pritchard for Victoria Johnson, and more.
