Spark Festival of Electronic Music and Arts

Submissions / Call for Works

  • Submissions

    Spark invites submissions of art, dance, theater, and music works incorporating new media, including electroacoustic concert music, experimental electronica, theatrical and dance works, installations, kinetic sculpture, artbots, video, and other non-traditional genres.

    Submissions are accepted in the following categories:

    • Installation+Visual Art
    • Composer+Performer
    • Night Life
    • Improvisation
    • Noise+Industrial
    • Theater+Dance
    • Works for Outdoor Public Spaces
    • Animation/Video
    While the festival provides technical support for the accepted works, we do not provide musicians. Submissions are therefore limited to works that are performed by the composer or by musicians/performers congregated by the composer.

    Spark receives submissions strictly through the online system. We encourage submitters to provide a URL to supporting audio/video media in the highest quality possible. In cases where high quality audio is not available online, file uploads are accepted (.wav or .aif, less than 128 MB in size). Video file uploads are not accepted.

    The submissions period has now ended. Notifications have already been sent out.

    Bellow are the submissions that were selected for programing.
