CD . [ http://www.60project.com%20 ]60º Project  - The Huddersfield  
Contemporary Music Festival is
celebrating the 60th anniversary of musique concrete and the  
pioneering work
of Pierre Schaeffer by commissioning 60º by Mathew Adkins. This highly
exciting  and  adventurous work will involve the contribution of sound
materials by 60 composers from around the world. We would like to  
invite you
to be one of the participating composers. artists include: AGF, François
Bayle, Mira Calix, Richard Chartier, Francis Dhomont, Lawrence English,
Erikm, Christian Fennesz, Tim Hecker, Christina Kubisch, Francisco  
Stephan Mathieu, Steve Roden, Scanner, Janek Schaefer, Conrad  
Sogar, Terre Thaemlitz, David Toop and many more. The concept behind the
project is ingenious. Rather than celebrating Schaeffer's achievements
through curating a concert of historical works, Adkins and the hcmf  
Director  Graham  McKenzie have decided to invite 60 sound artists and
composers to each contribute 60 sounds. Each of these sounds will then  
made  available  to all of the participants who will then create sound
fragments based on this material. This material will then be mixed by  
in the studios of INA-GRM in July 2008. The work will be premiered on  
November 2008 at the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival. The  
will also mark the release of the work on CD [ Empreinte Digitales [ http://www.empreintesdigitales.com 
Canada ].
