Eastern Illinois University is pleased to announce a call for works for the 2022 Napoleon Electronic Media Festival. The festival will be held at Doudna Fine Arts Center on the campus of Eastern Illinois University in Charleston, Illinois, February 9-10, 2022.
Composers may submit one work for consideration. Works that are no more than 15 minutes in duration will have the best chance of being programmed. Links to recordings (and scores if applicable) should be submitted online only via the Napoleon Electronic Media Festival conference website. All composers will be notified about the acceptance status of their submission no later than December 1, 2021. Accepted composers must RSVP by December 15, 2021.
Our facilities will accommodate the presentation of digital media (video and/or audio for up to 8.1 channels) and live performer(s). We cannot provide performers, but we encourage composers to provide their own if they so choose.
Submitted works can fit into any of these categories:
Composers who are selected are only required to attend if their submission requires a live performer, which they must provide. However, all accepted artists are welcome to attend if possible. Regrettably, EIU is not able to offer travel stipends or honorariums to festival participants.
(In accordinace with official CDC guidelines, all fully vaccinated and unvaccinated patrons of Douda Fine Arts Center on the EIU campus are required to wear a masks within the Dounda Fine Arts Center at all times.)
