CALL: NYC Electroacoustic Improvisation Summit 2022: Invitation and Call for Works

You are invited to the seventh annual New York City Electroacoustic Improvisation Summit (, featuring music by artists focused on the integration of music improvisation and real-time interactive computer systems.

NYC EIS 2022 will take place online on Friday, April 29, from 7:00 to 9:00 PM, at New York City College of Technology’s Voorhees Theater, 186 Jay Street, Brooklyn. Concerts are free and open to the public. We are excited to return to in-person performances, but we are monitoring the situation around COVID-19 and will make adjustments as necessary.

If you are a musician who would like to submit work for consideration, email with links to the following (no attachments please):

  • An abstract summarizing your submitted or proposed work. We program improvisatory works, as opposed to precisely notated or largely predetermined music. Your work must incorporate real-time interaction with a computer system, and this interaction must contribute substantially to the structure and dynamics of the music.
  • Media demonstrating your work, in performance if possible.
    If you are proposing a new work, media demonstrating similar recent work that you have done, in performance if possible.
  • Detailed information about your technical needs, including installation diagrams and equipment list. Indicate any personnel or equipment that you plan to provide.

Deadline for submission is January 15, 2022, end-of-day Eastern Standard Time.

Please note:

  • You must be able to perform a version of your work that is less than 15 minutes in length.
  • Submission of a work does not guarantee acceptance.
  • There is no registration fee.
  • Presence at the summit is required of all authors of accepted works.

We will provide:

  • Stereo sound. Our sound system includes a pair of Meyer Sound CQ-1 speakers with UPA-1P down-fills and 650-P subwoofers.
  • Lighting.
  • Stagehands and technical crews for sound and lighting.
  • Documentation. We endeavor to capture audio and video of each performance, but cannot make any guarantees about the availability or quality of documentation.


NYC EIS is made possible by faculty, staff, and students in the Emerging Media and Entertainment Technology programs at CUNY’s New York City College of Technology.
