European Sound Studies Organisation founded

ESSA, the European Sound Studies Organisation, was founded on Friday, July 14 2012. The aim is to provide an international, interdisciplinary and interprofessional organization for promoting the study of sound by providing a forum for knowledge exchange, for conferences, for research encouragement and development of projects, and for information. Membership is currently free, but an annual fee will be charged eventually.

There are three open access journals affiliated with ESSA: Soundeffects, Journal of sonic studies, and Interference, which I've mentioned before.

Call for projects 2013-2014: IRCAM Musical Research Residency Program

The fourth edition of IRCAM's Musical Research Residency program is now open for online submissions for the 2013-2014 school calendar. IRCAM (Institute for Research and Coordination in Acoustics and Music) offers experimental environments where composers/artists strive to expand their artistic experience at one end, and scientists aim at extending research and technological paradigms for new artistic expressions. Such interactive process is called Musical Research.

For its fourth edition, IRCAM and the INEDIT Project partners are inviting composers and artists to submit projects for the 2013-2014 Musical Research Residency program. The program is open to international artists, regardless of age or nationality, who wish to carry experimental research using Ircam's and partners’ facilities and extensive research environment. Submission is online only and an international panel of experts including researchers, composers, computer musicians and artists will evaluate each project. Upon nomination, each candidate will be granted a residency at Ircam during a specific period (three or six months) and in association with a team/project at Ircam. In addition, laureates receive an equivalent of 1200 Euros per month to cover expenses in France.

Submission Deadline: September 30, 2012
