What is an “Artistic Work”?
The much larger and complex implications of this question will definitely not be answered here! However, in regards to this symposium, an artistic work could be the animated score itself, it could be a video documenting a performance of an animated notation, it could be almost any creative work dealing with animated notation in the broadest sense. Hopefully there are works out there that we can not imagine right now! So surprise us!
What Kind of Artistic Works are Eligible?
A couple of points to consider.
We are not seeking works that are predominantly or entirely scored using regular staff notation (whether traditional, proportional or “graphic” in nature) in a static or fixed form. There are other, more appropriate forums for such approaches to notation.
We are seeking works (videos or other animated graphic forms) that make use of or explore animated notation for their realization, performances that show animated scores in action, or other items that are related to the creative and artistic use of animated notation.
Please make sure to follow the procedure below to submit an Artistic Work (extended deadline May 31, 2016). Submissions that do not follow the guidelines may be disqualified.
