Concours AKOUSMAtique - concert des finalistes

Electronics • Spatialization • Immersive

Come discover the three finalist works of the Montreal International Immersive Multitrack Music Competition, selected blindly by a jury of peers from 54 international submissions. During the concert, the winners will spatialize their works over the Schulich School of Music's MMR loudspeaker orchestra.

A guest of the Akousma Festival, French composer Jessica Ekomane, will join the jury to select the winner of the Francis-Dhomont Prize ($4,000 grant) and the public will award the Micheline-Coulombe-Saint-Marcoux Prize ($1,500 grant).
