Europe's Fourth Student 3D Audio Production Competition at virtual Tonmeister Gathering in Fall 2020

We happily announce the call for Europe's Fourth Student 3D Audio Production Competition, to be hosted by the Virtual Tonmeister Meeting, Oct. 7th to 10th, 2020

IEM calls for students' works to be submitted to Europe's Fourth 3D Audio Production Competition that is going to be hosted within the virtual meeting of VDT. The call is issued for the three production/composition categories:

(1) contemporary / computer music

(2) audio drama / documentary / soundscapes

(3) music recording / studio production.

The required format to deliver is a 5th order Ambisonic track as multi-channel file in .WAV or .CAF that comply with the AmbiX format (SN3D, full 3D, ACN channel ordering). Below you find a Reaper template project, which already has all the necessary settings and routings to create content for the competition.

Note that while the submission length is still max. 4min for categories (2) and (3), in the contemporary category (1) submission lengths of up to 11min will be accepted that fit common contemporary composition formats.

Please also note that it is important for us to be given a CC-by license by you to enable the competition, its awards, virtual appearance on, and the breakout sessions of the awards.

Submission deadline will be July 15th July 31st -- extended deadline -- 2020.
