Media and Data Uploads

SEAMUS 2012 Guidelines for uploading media and data.
Deadline: January 6

Personal Data:
Bios and Program notes
Although bios and program notes were part of the submission process, we ask that you to re-submit your information for the conference program booklet in order to ensure we have the most up-to-date and accurate material.

Please submit in ONE .doc or .txt file OR paste into body of email the following:
– your name as it should appear in the program
– the title of your piece as it should appear in the program
– the duration of your piece as it will be presented
– the type of media in your own words (fixed media, fixed video, live electronics, interactive electronics, etc.)
– updated program note for your piece
– if applicable, the names of your performers and/or collaborators as they should appear in the program with precise instrumentation
– an updated bio for yourself
– if applicable, bios for your performers and/or collaborators (if your performers are being provided by the conference, we will get their bios ourselves.)

Please send the above to seamus2012@lawrence.edu as .doc or .txt format or pasted in the body of the email.

Note: we will not be able to proof-read for spelling, etc. We ask that you double-check the correctness of your material before submitting.

Media:
Fixed Media and Fixed Media + Instrument(s)/Voice
Fixed Media Files should be uploaded to http://www.sendspace.com (300MB limit) or https://www.wetransfer.com (2GB limit) or other file transfer service with a receipt email of seamustech2012@gmail.com  . Alternatively, files can be made available for download on personal/institutional sites by sending an email with a direct link to seamustech2012@gmail.com  . Please do not use yousendit (time limit & signup required), filefactory (very slow download), or filedropper (20 MB limit).

– Fixed Media may be uploaded as individual files or compressed in a folder as a .zip file (preferable for multi-channel works). The individual files, original folder, and subsequent compressed .zip file must be named by the composer’s last and first name (example: Lastname_Firstname).

– Fixed Media files must be in either BWF (.wav) or AIF format with a sample rate of 48KHz and a resolution of 24 bits. If uploaded at a different sample rate and/or resolution, the files will be converted to the stated specification by the SEAMUS 2012 technical staff.

– Stereo Fixed Media: Interleaved BWF (.wav) or AIF file. (example Lastname_Firstname.aif)

– Multi-Channel Fixed Media (up to 8.1): Individual mono BWF (.wav) or AIF files. Individual mono files must also be labeled (L C R Ls Rs Lb Cb Rb LFE), followed by the file type extension (.WAV or .AIF). (example: Lastname_Firstname.L.wav; Lastname_Firstname.R.wav; Lastname_Firstname.Lb.wav; Lastname_Firstname.Rb.wav; etc.)

Live Electronics
SEAMUS 2012 will not provide live processing or interactive software such as MAX/MSP, Pd, or Supercollider for performance use on the conference computers. Composers whose work employs this type of software must supply a laptop computer, audio interface, and software for the performance.

Backups
Please bring a copy of your files to the conference on a flash drive, Data CD, or Data DVD for backup. We do not foresee having to use the backup files, but you can never be too prepared.
