The Midlands New Music Symposium seeks to explore and celebrate the diversity of current contemporary music and sound practices in the fields of composition, performance, and technology. The three-day symposium will include a series of presentations, lecture recitals, discussions, workshops, and concerts.

The symposium themes are open to let practitioners and scholars set the agenda. As such, the committee invites a broad range of proposals (outlined below) from individuals in and outside of academia. Moreover, we welcome submissions that engage with the Nottingham New Music Weekend theme of Deep Sounds, namely works for low pitched instruments and/or electronics.

Proposal formats

The deadline of the Call for Works & Sound Installations will be Sunday 8th March, 2020 (23.59 GMT).

The deadline for all other Proposals (Papers; Presentations; Demonstrations; Workshops; Mini-Recitals; and Lecture-Recitals) has been EXTENDED to Sunday 15th March, 2020 (23.59 GMT)
