As part of the Art & Science Days, Musinfo proposes to composers and artists from around the world to participate in the call for a sound work, following the tradition that began in Bourges several years ago.

The subject of this call is the relationship between science and the arts. The works must either take their inspiration from scientific knowledge, or apply this knowledge in their compositional process.


Diffusion of the works:

All works were presented during listening sessions in the Sound Planetarium during Art & Science Days 2014 (JAS 2014) in Tours (May 19), Bourges (20-22 May) and Orleans (May 23 ).

• This project is open to any composer, performer and sound artist.

• Any work that does not deal with the theme will not be played.

• The duration of the work must be between 3 and 5 minutes maximum.

• The work must be free of any rights of reproduction and distribution under the obvious subject to copyright.
