Electroacoustic media: cd/dat, video, live computer

Works incorporating electronic and computer music are especially encouraged. These submissions should be sent in cd or dat format (adat and cassette are not suitable). Please include specifics about any technical requirements. If your piece involves a performer you are not providing, then please include a score. One piece in this category will be selected for performance with live dance. The sound system will be stereo, and the concerts will take place in a small recital hall.

Another focus of this year's conference is the composer as performer. Works in this category may be submitted by recording or by score. Recordings need not be the final authoritative performance, especially in the case of works incorporating improvisation. This submission format is equally appropriate for works using performers the composer plans to provide.

Composers may submit one or two musical works for consideration. Ensemble submissions must be postmarked by October 15, 2001. All other submissions should be postmarked by November 1, 2001. Entries should be accompanied by a submission form (also enclosed in "Music Now"). Please include a SASE if you would like your scores and or recordings returned. Alternately, you can retrieve them at the conference.

In addition to music submissions, papers and presentations are welcome. Please send a detailed abstract or proposal. All topics dealing with composition, technology, pedagogy, theory, cultural and gender studies, or aesthetics are welcome. These sessions can include formal paper readings, informal presentations, demos, panel discussions, or interactive workshops. Deadline for submission of abstracts and proposals is November 1, 2001. Entries should be accompanied by a submission form (also enclosed in "Music Now").

Membership in SCL is not required for attendance or submission; however, all composers and presenters whose compositions and papers are selected for the program are expected to attend the conference, and to join the Southeastern Composers' League
