Dear friends,

For the Toronto Electroacoustic Symposium 2012 (Aug 15-18 2012) I am again curating a special session on participatory electronic ensemble performance (PEEP) - such as laptop orchestras, live coding groups, telematic improvisation sessions, and other collective electroacoustic forms.  I am writing to you now to invite proposals for compositions, instruments, experiments and other activities that might be included in the session.  I see this taking shape in an "unconference" kind of way where I will endeavour to include as many of the submitted ideas as possible, taking into account the available time, human and technical resources.

The laptop orchestra I direct at McMaster University (the Cybernetic Orchestra) will be at the session ready to perform with selected materials (i.e. we'll be devoting our remaining rehearsals in July and August to preparing for the session).  The orchestra is willing to try anything.  Live coding with ChucK is the orchestra's core strength - with pockets within the orchestra developing strong skills with MaxMSP and SuperCollider.  But I repeat: we are willing to try anything!  Feel free to make proposals involving other performers at the symposium, symposium attendees, and the general public also.

So… if you are involved with participatory electronic ensemble performance in any form (or know people who are) - please consider sending me (or encouraging someone else to send me) a proposal.  Proposals should be sent to me at ogbornd at mcmaster.ca in plain-text email. Thanks in advance for forwarding this - I look forward to hearing from many of you!
Deadline for proposals: Tuesday 31 July 2012
Toronto Electroacoustic Symposium: 15-18 August 2012
Participatory Electronic Ensemble Performance Session: 2-4 PM on Saturday 18 August 2012

Yours truly,
David Ogborn
