Call for Works for the 60x60 project

Vox Novus is inviting composers to submit works 60 seconds or less in 
length to included in its fifth annual 60x60 project. 60 compositions 
will be selected to be performed continuously in a one-hour concert, in 
conjunction with multimedia elements and an analog clock marking the 
passage of time.

During the concert each of the 60 pieces selected will begin precisely 
at the beginning of the minute, this will mark the end of one piece and 
the beginning of another. There will be no pause between the pieces. 
Works may be less than 60 seconds in length, but may not exceed 60 
seconds. Works selected that are less than 60 seconds long will be 
"padded" with silence either before, after, or surrounding the 
composition. Please note that the total duration of the work including 
silence may NOT exceed sixty seconds.

The 60x60 project's definition of a record work is as follows: any work 
created as a musical composition which is captured on recorded media, 
which does not require live performers for its production in broadcast 
at concert halls, radio, multi-media, etc. Its creation can include but 
not limited to acoustic instruments, voice, environmental sources, and 
computer (Sampling, MIDI, C Sound, ProTools, etc.)

Acoustic compositions should be submitted with the understanding that it 
is their recording that is of prime importance and is what will be used 
to determine its selection. Scores of works are strongly discouraged and 
will not be used in the selection process.

Excerpts of larger works are strongly discouraged. 60x60 is a project of 
"signature works" and short works created specifically for the 60x60 
project. Works generated from procedures (i.e. mathematical matrices, 
organizational systems, or computer programs,) remixed works, or themes 
and motives recomposed from other of the composer's own work are 
The call is open to composers of any nationality, age, or career stage.
Works submitted must not have been previously performed or broadcasted.
Compact Discs that include the audio submission must be labeled with the 
composer's name and the title of the work. The submission form must be 
sent at the same time with the submitted work. Submission form must 
contain the composer's name, address, email, phone number, composition 
title, composition length, and track position on the compact disc. 
Biographies and program notes may be included on a separate sheet, but 
must be typed and each may be no longer than 100 words in length.

Multiple works may be submitted. Each work must be noted on the submission
form(s) and clearly indicated on the CD. Do Not send originals! No works 
will be returned, and may be performed in subsequent performances after 
the debut concert. All submissions must be postmarked by May 21, 2007. 
Selected works will be announced on September 17, 2007.
Submission of the work(s) on compact disc must be accompanied
by the submission form and sent to:
