The Foundation Destellos announced today the results of the 8th edition of its electroacoustic composition competition. The first prize of both categories were not awarded. Thus, in the acousmatic category, two ex æquo second prizes were awarded to works by Gilles Gobeil and Andrew Babcock, and, in the mixed category, the second prize was awarded to Demian Rudel Rey. Mentions were also attributed to David Hindmarch, Daniel Blinkhorn, Louise Rossiter, Nikos Stavropoulos, and Keita Matsumiya.
