GRM Découvertes 2021

Die zweite Ausgabe von INA grms Kompositions-Contest

This year, INA grm holds its GRM Découvertes composition contest for the second time, and intends once again to take the pulse of a new generation of electroacoustic and experimental music composers from around the world, by letting them submit original and unreleased compositions, in stereo or multichannel format, to the appreciation of a jury composed of GRM members.
Three types of prizes will be awarded to the winners:
First prize: Commission and premiere.
The first selected piece will be turned into a commission by INA grm, and will be premiered on the GRM Acousmonium on October 31st 2021 at the Studio 104 of the Maison de la Radio in Paris on the GRM Acousmonium.
Second prize: GRM Tools Complete II pack.
The second and third winners will be awarded a GRM Tools Complete II pack.
Third prize: Radio diffusion in L’Expérimentale.
The winners of the first two prizes, as well as two other winners, will have their compositions broadcasted in L’Expérimentale, the INA grm radio show on France Musique.
The submitted works must not have already been performed in concert or released physically or digitally: they must be original and unreleased musical works.
The duration of the works must be between 10 and 15 minutes.
Only candidates who never received an INA grm commission can participate.
Each participant can only submit one composition, and all applicants will receive the results of the selection by email.
