We're delighted to announce the launch of the second edition of the Totem Électroacoustique contest. Over the past few months, we've been recording and organizing an array of new sounds to add to the original bank of 1,200 sounds exploring uncharted sonic territories from the invented instruments of Productions Totem Contemporain.

Composers entering the contest will have access to these sounds in high definition (24 bit/96 kHz) to compose an original work. Several cash prizes, residencies, commissions, digital album publishing and concert performances will be offered to the finalists.

We encourage you to share the announcement of this contest with all the artists in your community who have an interest in composition and sound experimentation. It's a great opportunity to discover unheard-of sounds, and to showcase your work internationally.
