Please tell us about the piece of music that you would like to perform. Here are some guidelines & requirements:
• Generally speaking, with our typically diverse audience in mind, we will favor works under 7 minutes in duration.• There is a submission fee of $20 for each work that you would like us to consider. Please make payments via PayPal to NWEAMOpayment@gmail.com. • Deadline for submission: December 1, 2017• If your work is accepted, there is no cost for participation. NWEAMO will promote your piece and provide the venue and sound reinforcement, but does not have funding to compensate travel, lodging or performance fees.• We strongly encourage composers of the selected works to attend the festival in person. NWEAMO is a community and as such it thrives on all that can come from fruitful interaction and the excitement of sharing the stage with a diverse group of artists from all over the world.Founded in 1998, the mission of NWEAMO is to build connections and dissolve boundaries between communities of composers who work in some way with electronic media and other novel materials, and to broaden the audience for music that ranges from the experimental fringes of pop music to the far shores of modern aesthetic and technical exploration. NWEAMO seeks to present the broadest possible spectrum of different genres and styles with the goal of bridging gaps and building a world-wide community of people who are passionate about the universal language of music. We hope to do our part in building a world without borders – where differences are honored and celebrated.
The festival's home is San Diego, California, but NWEAMO travels widely, and has taken place in New York City, Boulder, Miami, Mexico City, Portland, Tokyo, and Venice, Italy. The 2017 festival will take place in San Diego and Morelia, Mexico.
We are calling out to boundary pushing singer-songwriters, DJs, VJs, masters of EDM, creative gamers, and composers working at the experimental fringe of pop electronica as well as contemporary classical music and multimedia art.
2 Cities:Morelia, Michoacan, Mexico- April 19 - 20, 2018San Diego, California, USA - March 16-19, 2018
The NWEAMO Festival will be traveling to Mexico for the second time. We are looking for participants in our two day festival. It will take place in Morelia, the center of Mexico, at CMMAS April 19-20.
We want to invite artists from around the world who share our mission of world unity through creative expression.
We are looking for artists who would love to present mini sets of 1 to 7 minutes, and who are excited about sharing the stage with as many different genres as possible in a 75 minute concert. The music can be any innovative style, using invented, traditional or electronic instruments. It can involve projected images, choreography, dance, etc.
In addition to our broader call for works, we are fortunate to have renowned violin duo Miolina (miolinanyc.wixsite.com/miolina), from New York City, planning to perform in this year's San Diego concert. Consisting of Lynn Bechtold and Mioi Takeda, the duo welcomes submission of works for two violins and electronics.
We want to invite new entries as well as artists from our past American, Asian, and European endeavors to collide and merge with the vast and deep currents of Mexico. We are thrilled at the potential for new cross pollination in our ongoing search for hybrid global art statements. What can be born from the implosion and transfusion of opposite polarities?
