Dear friends,

For the Toronto Electroacoustic Symposium 2012 
(Aug 15-18 2012) I am again curating a special 
session on participatory electronic ensemble 
performance (PEEP) -- such as laptop orchestras, 
live coding groups, telematic improvisation 
sessions and other collective electroacoustic 
forms. I am writing to you now to invite 
proposals for compositions, instruments, 
experiments and other activities that might be 
included in the session. I see this taking shape 
in an "unconference" kind of way where I will 
endeavour to include as many of the submitted 
ideas as possible, taking into account the 
available time, human and technical resources.

The laptop orchestra I direct at McMaster 
University (the Cybernetic Orchestra) will be at 
the session ready to perform with selected 
materials (i.e. we'll be devoting our remaining 
rehearsals in July and August to preparing for 
the session). The orchestra is willing to try 
anything. Live coding with ChucK is the 
orchestra's core strength -- with pockets within 
the orchestra developing strong skills with 
Max/MSP and SuperCollider. But I repeat: we are 
willing to try anything! Feel free to make 
proposals involving other performers at the 
symposium, symposium attendees and the general 
public also.

So... if you are involved with participatory 
electronic ensemble performance in any form (or 
know people who are) -- please consider sending 
me (or encouraging someone else to send me) a 
proposal. Proposals should be sent to me at 
<mailto:ogbornd at mcmaster.ca?Subject=PEEP> in 
plain-text email. Thanks in advance for 
forwarding this -- I look forward to hearing from 
many of you!

Deadline for proposals: Tuesday 31 July 2012
Toronto Electroacoustic Symposium: 15-18 August 2012
Participatory Electronic Ensemble Performance 
Session: 2-4 PM on Saturday 18 August 2012

Yours truly,
