Receipt Deadline: Friday, March 23, 2007
Composers and sound artists are invited to submit original works to TRANSreveLATION, the second annual audio concert curated by Jim Briggs and Melissa Grey. Your composition must interpret a work from another discipline, such as, painting, sculpture, architecture, literature/poetry, new media, film/video, mathematical/chemical processes, or political/economic systems, etc. Works that include live performance, real-time processing, or dance will receive special consideration.
Work must have been composed after 2005 and must not have been performed or broadcast.
There is no limit on duration; however, works that are under 5 minutes will stand a better chance at being accepted.

â€¢ Contact information: phone number, home address, and email address.
â€¢ Title/duration/media/year created
â€¢ Artist and Performer Bios (100 words)
â€¢ Program note (100 words or less) or artist statement about how your piece relates to the theme
