Almanac on contemporary musical instruments — Call for contributions

ongoing call

The 3DMIN project invites authors to contribute small pieces to a collection on contemporary musical instruments and related musical practice. The almanac’s intention is to collect and present as many as possible viewpoints upon the field of contemporary musical instruments. The pieces forming the almanac are intended to explain aspects of contemporary musical instruments by forming a body of information of which the reader gains insights and new impulses for her artistic or scientific work. Questions to be addressed are e.g.

  • What is a contemporary musical instrument?
  • What do you consider as important aspects of a contemporary musical instrument?
  • How does your professional perspective shape your viewpoint on contemporary musical instruments?
  • How does a contemporary musical instrument shape musical practice?

Each author of an essay is asked to select one of the many aspects around contemporary musical instruments and formulate a short piece around it. A collection of subjects for inspiration can be found here. The form of the pieces is, within the boundaries described below, left to the authors.

Submitted pieces will be reviewed, edited and eventually published on a dedicated webpage. Depending on the amount and quality of the submitted material, a printed publication of selected works is planned.

Suggested form of contributions

Submitted pieces should be compiled in a form the single authors finds suitable for the chosen theme. Examples for such a form are: a short essay (about 500 words), a photo collection, a figure, a table, a javascript element, or a combination of them. Sound and video material is highly appreciated. The amount of displayed information should not exceed the size of an A4/letter-format page. Submission language is English.
