I personally feel that this space, the festival report, it is important that will stay alive in the future. So when at some point this site will close down i will keep alive this page somewhere else, because i think it is important for our community.

A note about 0Euros registration
The 0 Euro registration has been made, basically for spouses and players that need to travel at a different time than the officially registered person, so they are free to book separately their hotel room. Also it can be that, a part for the concert they are directly involved, the might not be interested in the Conference.
0 Euros rtegistration is not a free registration to the conference , because with this registration you wont receive neither the pass to participate to the paper session, nor the pass for free entrance to the concerts (a part for the one in which you are playing you will have to pay for any other you would like to attend), no proceedings, nor CD.
We had to clarify these ..very strict rules in order to avoid later misunderstandings.

    A Call for Music for an Off-Icmc2001 lunch concert:

  • The Door Project.
    The selection process of your submissions for this project is independent from the official selection for ICMC 2001 concerts, nevertheless you can submit, separately, your composition to both selections.
    Since it is independent from the official call for music, there isnt a specific deadline to follow for The Door Project.

  • Tue Jan 2 23:20:01 AST 2001

    Two interesting documents are added to the web site:

  • Notes from Roger Dannenberg about his recent trip to Cuba, as US citizen. He participated in March 2000 at Spring in Habana, Electronic Music Festival.
  • An article by Neil Leonard about Juan Blanco, ICMC2001 Honorary Director, LNME Director and a pioneer of electronic music.

    More: even if our direction, wont change, our server has now moved from Stanford (thanks to CCRMA for hosting temporarely our web page).
    We are now kindly hosted at Centro Tempo Reale in Florence, Italy. Thanks to its director Nicola Bernardini and Alessandro Morgantini, the system administrator.

    It could happen in the next two days, but it is not sure (45% possibility), that while DNS changes are updated you would be redirected to the old page, easy to recognize...does not have paper and music submission forms. to be sure, dont submit, wait for a couple of days, while studying the guidelines...Thank you
