The Canadian Electroacoustic Community’s “Jeu de Temps/Times Play (JTTP) winners for 2007 have been announced! Actually, I’m a tad slow on the uptick this year– I got the list of the top five last week. The JTTP, an internationally-regarded competition for young and emerging Canadian composers and sound artists, has had my ear since 2001 when I came on as a ‘media partner.’
I will be broadcasting this year’s winners during my upcoming show on 7/21. I may also play a selection of past year’s winners. Until then, here is a list of the top five entries. If you can’t wait until then, feel free to click the entries– they’re all mp3s!
1 — Dominic Thibault — Nuit noire, Nuit grise (5:12)
2 — Georges Forget — Orages D’acier (6:59)
3 — Thierry Gauthier — Cycles (8:00)
4 — Olivier Girouard — Le pont du souvenir (5:54)
5 — Félix Lebrun-Paré — La volonté du périscope (6:22)
CKUT-FM 90.3 in Montreal should have the “official” broadcast of these works if it hasn’t happened already. I didn’t see it last week, so I’m guessing it may happen today. (9 to 11 a.m. EST) Of course, they get to interview the winners personally… poor me, so far away in Southern Illinois!
Update: The CEC informed me today that the “official” broadcast of the winning entries, and appearances by each composer will take place on September 12. Let’s be unofficial together this 7/21, shall we?
