Journal SEAMUS invites submissions for Vol. 21, No. 1 of the journal.
Journal SEAMUS is the official publication of the Society for Electro-Acoustic Music in the United States. The Society is devoted to the support, study, and development of electro-acoustic music.
For Vol. 21, No.1, we are making an open call to all facets pertinent to electro-acoustic music. This is includes, for example, compositional techniques, technical topics, signal processing and sound synthesis, analysis, historical studies, musicology, cultural studies, aesthetics, acoustics, interviews, new interfaces, and musical mathematics. The editors encourage contributions from all members of the electro-acoustic music community, including composers, theorists, musicologists, technologists, engineers, scientists, and aestheticians. Students are encouraged to submit articles.
A special section we will add to forthcoming issues starting with Vol. 20, No. 2 is the “Tips and Tricks” section in Journal SEAMUS. This section will provide information for our community with the latest (and old alike!) tricks, need-to-knows, tutorials, and other “tricks of the trade” such as compositional strategies, programming tips, hacks, DSP topics, hardware, recording tips, miking techniques, performance must-knows, and the like.
Manuscripts must be submitted electronically. Main articles generally are of 2,000 to 6,000 words. Microsoft Word is the preferred format; however, files can also be saved in RTF format with an accompanying PDF version. Manuscripts should be written according to the Chicago Manual of Style. Footnotes should be numbered consecutively and gathered at the end of the manuscript. Graphs, charts, and musical examples should be sent as separate attachments for ease of layout. Please include a brief biography and photograph (60 words or less).
