During the festival you will have the opportunity to present on your own work in general, and on your submitted composition in particular, in round table discussions and public debates with our guest composer, Stefan Prins. CD players, video projectors and computers will be available for presentation purposes. If you require any other special equipment, please let us know.
We would especially like to invite you to perform the electronic part of your submitted work in concert with Xenia Pestova, 14 April 2018 at Smock Alley Theatre, Dublin. We may be in touch again if we have any specific questions concerning the production of your submitted work. If there are any ‘patches’, files or other electronics ‘parts’ required for the performance of your work, which you have not already sent, please forward those to me as soon as possible.
In preparation for your visit, please continue to check the festival website for a full, up-to-date schedule. And in the meantime, I look forward seeing you in Dublin in April.
With kind regards, Fergal Dowling
