[Aug 10] Call for Works: 2016 NoiseGate Festival

Call for Works: 2016 NoiseGate Festival


Dates of the Festival: September 21 – 25, 2016

We are excited to announce the 2016 NoiseGate Festival Call for Composition and Installation works and invite artists, composers, and performers to participate in the inaugural NoiseGate Festival organized by New York University (NYU) and the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network (UN-SDSN) Global Arts Initiative.

The theme of the festival centers on the environment and aims to bring awareness to spatial noise with a particular focus on urban noise pollution. While we encourage works that resonate with the theme of our festival – urban noise pollution and acoustic ecology – we welcome all submissions that focus broadly on the environment.


Selected compositions will be programed during the festival between September 22 – 25, 2016 at NYU Steinhardt. Please follow submission link for the ‘Compositions’ for detailed information on instrumentation availability.
