This year, the Futura 06 festival in Crest (France) is compressed into a 3-day event — August 18 — 20, 2006 — and into one 35-hour concert. Amongst the featured composers: Luc Ferrari (homage), Michèle Bokanowski, Michel Chion, Darren Copeland, Matmos, Yann Paranthoën (homage), Elsa Justel, Roxanne Turcotte, and Pierre Henry. Then on August 27, a concert concluding an acousmatic diffusion workshop will feature 15 works by just as many composers, including Francis Dhomont and Marc Tremblay.
Robert Normandeau and Jean-François Denis presented the closing concert of the “Akusmatisches Wochenende” festival produced by the Studio für elektroakustische Musik (SeaM) in Weimar (Germany) on June 18, 2006. The programme included works by Normandeau, and, spatialized by Denis, short works by Elainie Lillios, Elsa Justel, Elizabeth Hoffman, Natasha Barrett, John Oswald, Yves Daoust, and Pierre Alexandre Tremblay.
Sol y sombra… L’espace des spectres, a composition by Francis Dhomont and Arturo Parra, was selected for the next edition of the ICMC (International Computer Music Conference), to be held in Barcelona (Spain) from September 5 to 9, 2005. The European premiere of the work will take place at the Auditori on September 8, 2005.

To celebrate its 10th edition L’Espace du son, the international festival of acousmatic music in Belgium, invited several pairs of composers to confront their distinct musical approaches. Each night, the public will be treated to two styles, two sensibilities that will stress the diversity in acousmatic music. On November 14, 2003, French Bertrand Dubedout and Canadian Sarah Peebles will compare their sonic impressions of the Japanese cities of Nara and Tokyo. November 15, its the gentle and meditative music of Swede Erik Michael Karlsson against the nervous and dynamic work of Philippe Mion. And finally, the 16, time for Elsa Justel’s granular sounds and Ludger Brümmer’s energy modelisation.
From August 26 to 29, the acousmatic and multimedia festival Sonoimágenes 2003 features concerts, videos, and lectures at Lanús’ national univeristy, near Buenos Aires (Argentina). With the participation of François Donato, Régis Renouard Larivière, Beatriz Ferreyra, Elsa Justel and many other composers and video artists.
