14/02 - 30/09
International Composition Competition Franco Evangelisti
Composers of any age and nationality are eligible.
The electronic music part may involve either fixed audio media (i.e. “tape”) or live electronics (i.e. processing devices, controllers, etc.), with sound diffusion across 2 to 8 independent channels. Submitted scores should include a clear description of the technical setup and a detailed list of the necessary equipment. Should a work with live electronics be admitted to the final concert, the composer is required to take part in the performance. In which case, Nuova Consonanza will provide assistants and will make any reasonable effort to support the composer’s participation and match technical requirements; the composer, however, is expected to provide any specially designed software and hardware resources possibly involved.
Multiple submissions are allowed. Submitted works can have already been performed in public, but they should be unpublished and should not have received awards in previous contests.
Please do not send audio files in the email. The email text should include one or more links to audio contents made available on the internet (make sure you are providing complete and actually extant URLs). You are invited to provide a full performance stereo recording (however sketchy or provisional it might be, particularly for works with multichannel sound). For works involving fixed audio media, please also provide us with as many separate sound files as necessary, mono or stereo, with individual filenames clearly indicating the individual loudspeaker assignment.
The deadline for submissions is 30 September 2022 (23:59, Gmt +2).
A € 30 entry fee for each separate submitted work can be paid

The first prize comprises € 1.000 and publication of the score by Edizioni Suvini Zerboni, Milano.
The jury reserves the right not to nominate finalists and not to proclaim any prize winner. The jury also reserves the right to award ex-aequo prizes and to provide ‘special mentions’. The jury’s judgment is unquestionable.
In case of legal disputes, the competent forum is that of Rome. The original (Italian) version of the present call stands as the only source reference for legal disputes.
