Xenakis Competition

In an attempt to encourage the creation and diffusion of new electroacoustic works, Contemporary Music Lab of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki is organizing an International Electronic Music Composition Competition under the name “Iannis Xenakis” every two years.

Composers from all over the world, without age, race or sex restrictions may submit their music. The selected composition are presented in special concerts that the CML is organizing for this particular occasion.

We are organizing this competition in order to pay tribute to Iannis Xenakis, a real innovator and pioneer in the field of electronic music. We are thankful to all composers who have supported our dreams about modern music so far, and we are looking  forward to receive new music in our future competitions.
