Art. 1 TEM - Taukay Edizioni Musicali and Delta Produzioni Associazione Culturale hereby open a call for works for acousmatic music composers dedicated to the sounds of languages and dialects.

The purpose of this call for works is to identify acoustic material related to the sound of words. We are looking for works that contain the specific phonemes of the language spoken by the composers (or also phonemes of other languages), not necessarily set to music or harmonized, in order to create a tapestry of sound based on the use of words and their elaboration.

A selection of the best material received will be published. We also intend to organise a concert where a selection of the best compositions will be performed.

Art. 2 No participation fee is required.

Art. 3 The call for works will accept compositions by musicians of any nationality and of any age. Compositions must be sent as explained below.
