Dear friends of Network Music,

We're happy to announce that after a 6 years break, the Network Music
Festival is back for an entirely online 4th edition. Responding to the mass
move to online music making during the 2020 global pandemic and with
increasing concern among artistic communities about the climate emergency,
the festival is returning for a global fourth edition, which will take
place entirely online *15-18th July 2020*.

We are launching an *OPEN CALL* for *performances* and *workshops* from
locations anywhere in the world. Submissions can address any aspect of
networked music making, but we're particularly interested in submissions
that address this year's theme of *communities near and far:* *As many
people find themselves socially distant, the importance of community is
transformed. People rely on sound to bridge physical gaps, from singing or
applauding out their windows, to connecting with others online. Our
connections, then, are either intensely local, or virtually borderless. We
stay in touch with friends and neighbours, but also find that collaborating
across the world is not harder than collaborating across town. In this
year’s festival, we want to celebrate and strengthen the musical
communities people have built with networking tools, as well as exploring
the aesthetics, performance practice and technologies around topics such as
web-streaming, multi-location performance, collaborative music making
environments, accessible and sustainable performance practice and more.*

As well as a general call for performances and workshops that fit under the
festival themes, we also have four special performance calls: MIMIC New
Works <http://networkmusicfestival.org/open-call/#MIMIC>, New to Networking
<http://networkmusicfestival.org/open-call/#newnet>, VR Algorave
<http://networkmusicfestival.org/open-call/#algorave> and Student Works
<http://networkmusicfestival.org/open-call/#student>. We have an ‘Other
<http://networkmusicfestival.org/open-call/#other>’ category for
submissions in other formats that fit with the theme and online format of
the festival.

We are keen to encourage submissions from performers who are new to
networked music making, and entry level workshops for beginners.

More info and submission forms are online at:

*The deadline for the open call is 7th May 2020 (this will NOT be
extended)! *
