Improvisers! Do you want to participate in the 2020 SEM Orchestra Virtual Performance Series?
This year, the Society for Ethnomusicology Orchestra is organizing a series of virtual performances for SEM 2020 Virtual Annual Meeting (October 22-31, 2020), and would like to invite members to perform. Anyone can join and perform in the SEM Orchestra (for free). All instruments, levels, and styles are welcome! Some pieces also welcome submissions of ambient sounds, fieldwork samples, or sound bites.
They have provided a variety of options for contributors, both asynchronous and synchronous, ranging from collage frameworks in which participants can submit fieldwork samples and ambient sounds to more structured compositions in which to perform. More information about these options can be accessed here: https://semorchestra.wixsite.com/sem-o/virtual-projects
While high-fidelity recordings using specialized equipment are welcome, recordings can also be captured by more ubiquitous electronic devices with video and audio capacity, such as a cell phone, tablet, or computer.
If you are interested in contributing, please visit their website (semorchestra.wix.com/sem-o) or contact [email protected] for more details and information.
Everyone is welcome, and encouraged, to submit their recordings at any time, but the final deadline for submissions is Thursday, October 1.
