Call for Submissions - The CEAIT Festival 2004 at Calarts and REDCAT


This year's Center for Experiments in Art, Information and Technology (CEAIT) festival will be taking place January 30 through February 1, 2004, in both the newly opened REDCAT in downtown Los Angeles and the Roy O. Disney Music Hall on the Calarts campus.

Pieces should include live electronics, instrumental performers with tape or computer, tape alone, video tape, or computer alone. There is a preference for live work over tape/CD only pieces, although tape/CD-only pieces will also be programmed. We regret that we will not be accepting proposals for audio and web installations this year, but do intend to include these media in future CEAIT events.

We accept pieces that are a maximum of 15 minutes long and will accept up to two submissions per composer or group. We accept submissions on Compact Disc, VHS, CD-Rom, or DVD. We will also accept emailed links to downloadable MP3s or Quicktime files, but please be aware that any problems encountered while downloading them will result in disqualification. Emailed submissions should be sent to

For pieces involving performers, the composer needs to provide the performers and make necessary arrangements for the performance.

For pieces with image, we will have a projector with VHS, DVD, or CD-Rom playback available. All video Submissions should be in NTSC format.

Please include with each submission (in the body of an email or as a Word document):

  • A Short Bio
  • Program notes
  • Composer's or group's contact information including email
  • A list of technical requirements

Please Note: The festival does not provide financial support for any travel or production expenses. Any submitted materials cannot be returned unless an SASE is included in the submission.
