Call for SOLO

Enrico Francioni





apeSoft ( together with Enrico Francioni (the author of the Csound code of the SOLO [Nr.19] app) cast a selection for the realization / interpretation of a Version of SOLO (for melody instrument with feedback) by K.Stockhausen, made with the SOLO [Nr.19] app.
Selected realizations / interpretations will be used as DEMO versions within the SOLO [Nr.19] app.
The selection is open to interpreters of any nationality without age limits.
It is possible to participate with one realization / interpretation by choosing between the Six Versions (FORM-SCHEMES) provided by the author; Particular attention is given to Versions III, IV, V and VI.
It is also possible to participate in the selection both individually and in pairs for the same work.
In the latter case the two roles will be distinguished in:
- a developer (who will curate the score sheet of the chosen Version) and
- an interpreter (who will take care of the execution of the same).
The best realizations / interpretations will be selected by a Commission, whose judgment is unquestionable.
It is possible to participate with realizations / interpretations made for any solo instrument (acoustic, electric, or electronic), or solo voice (any text should be of public domain, if not, the written statement of the author or the holder of the Copyright for use, to be attached to the documentation in .pdf format).

In order to participate, you must send the following material in a compressed folder by WeTransfer to the address: (with your name and last name) by 23:59 on 30 April 2018:

2. The audio file (in .mp3 format, costant bit rate, 192 kb/s, monoaural) of the instrumental / vocal part of the performed interpretation (the audio track - which is the input signal - may be already enriched with the instrumental / vocal Timbres or electronic effects following the score of the version produced) - this monoaural file will be included as the input signal in the DEMO of the SOLO [Nr.19] app in the event that the realization / interpretation is selected;
