JukeBoxx NewMusic Award Competition 2020

The competition is addressed to composers and artists in the field of contemporary music and media arts. It seeks appealingly visualized music of max. 12 minutes in length. The work must not have been composed earlier than October 2017.

The prize in the amount of € 3.500,- offered by the Christoph und Stephan Kaske Foundation, wants to honour not only individual compositions, but specifically also works resulting from cooperations between composers of art music and visual artists in the field of media arts. This also entails cooperations, where musicians have created works with performers and video artists, that have been realized in a performance. In the submitted clip the connection between music and visual arts should be individually recognizable.

The competition seeks for visualized music of at most 12 minutes in length. Video productions with interrelated acoustic and visual layers are wanted. The award wants to honour not only individual compositions, but also works resulting from cooperations between composers and visual artists. In the submitted clip the connection between music and visual arts should be individually recognizable. A mere documentation of a performance or the manifestation in scores does usually not suffice to fulfill these criteria. Sought is rather a production of a visual „Hörspiel“, artistically connecting contemporary music, electronic or experimental music with media and video arts or digital arts.

Suitable works should be transmitted as a video clip of high visual and acoustic quality on jukeboxx-newmusic.net. The work must not have been composed before October 2017 and must not exceed 12 minutes of length. Every participant is allowed to submit only one single work.

Deadline for application is September 21th, 2020.
