    60x60 Down Under

    A double dose of 60x60 is going down under for the first time in Sydney, Australia.

    This Tuesday March 14th 2006, Robert Sazdov hosts both the acoustic 60x60 (2005) and the video collaboration of 60x60 (2004) with Shimpei Takeda at the Sydney Conservatorium, Sydney Australia.

    "60x60 showcases a wealth of brief, contemporary compositions. There are no live performances, so you can't really call it a concert. Maybe it would better be described as a listening party. ... It's like a Whitman's sampler of the contemporary new music scene. "
    - Sound Sampler Greg Haymes Times Union February 9, 2006

    "60x60 features 60 back-to-back pieces that are each under 60 seconds long, each by a different modern composer. 60-second abstract silent films accompany many of the works. ... It's like channel surfing through experimental music."
    - Geeta Dayal, Village Voice March 16-22, 2005 Vol. L NO. 11

    60x60 (2005) features the composers:
    Liana Alexandra, Kenneth Babb, Christopher Bailey, Greg Bartholomew, Dennis Bathory-Kitsz, Eve Beglarian, Steven Betts, Benjamin Bierman, John Biggs, Scott Brickman, George Brunner, Paul Burnell, Julian Cartwright, David Claman, Paul Clouvel, Douglas Cohen, Andrew Cormier, Noah Creshevsky, Richard Donnelly, Aaron Drake, Travis Ellrott, Lisa Gasior, Doug Geers, Bob Gluck, David Gunn, David Hamill, David, Justin Handford, Freeman, Marihiko Hara, Erdem Helvacioglu, Michael John Hopkins, Gary Knudson, Myroslava Lashkevych, John Link, Stan Link, Tom Lopez, Don Malone, Mike McFerron, Leslie Melcher, Polly Moller, Curt Nordgaard, Rodney Oakes, Cezary Ostrowski, Ronald Parks, Alexis Perepelcia, Kevin Ponto, Mark Rose, Heike Schmidt, Alex Shapiro, Martin Simon, Kenneth Steen, Peter Swanzy, Mike Swinchoski, Agnes Szelag, Piotr Szewczyk, Vladimir Tosic, Rene Veron, Straiph Wilson, Katrina Wreede, Peter Wyer, and Ensemble Ordinature with the miriacale ensemble

    Most recent review by MALCOLM MILLER investigates -- Copyright © 24 December 2005 Malcolm Miller, London UK

    "If you get bored quickly or have A.D.D., 60x60 features 60 back-to-back pieces that are each under 60 seconds long, each by a different modern composer. 60-second abstract silent films accompany many of the works. It's like channel surfing through experimental music-and its all over in an hour or less."
    -- Geeta Dayal, Village Voice March 16-22, 2005 Vol. L NO. 11

        60x60 is a concert containing 60 compositions from 60 different composers, each composition is 60 seconds or less in duration. These 60 recorded pieces are performed in an hour long continuous concert. The performance is played in conjunction with a synchronized analog clock marking the passing of each minute. At the top of the minute begins a new composition from a different composer.
        This compact disc adaptation of the 60x60 project is created for 3 different listening methods: The first is sequentially; each work in listened to in a designed order. The second is on random play, where there is no order. And the third is to listen to each work repeatedly for an extended period of time. Each method brings a different view and understanding to the composer's work and vision.
        The goal of this project is to highlight many composers. The project presents a cross-section of contemporary music, including the various styles, aesthetics and techniques being used by the composers of today. 60x60 is a circle of sound, 60 pieces representing a slice of the contemporary music scene. The works in this volume of the 60x60 project represent the submissions received for the year 2003.

    Upcoming 60x60 concerts in many areas USA and internationally.

Musicians interested in being featured on the Living Artist Recordings label are invited to submit proposals:

      1. To be considered for the project, composers or performers should send their proposal to the address given below. Submissions can consist of scores and/or recordings. If scores are sent without recordings, please indicate when a recording will be available. Proposals will be sent to a review panel that meets four times each year.

      2. If selected, participants are responsible for recording their own pieces and supplying Living Artist Recordings with a DAT or CD copy of the recording. The recording must be of professional quality. If the quality of the recording submitted is deemed to have problems, the participant will be asked to re-record the piece.

      3. COSTS:

      a. If your submission will be part of a recording featuring several other participants, the cost is $75 per minute (based on the duration of your piece).
      b. If your submission is for an entire CD of your works, the cost is $3000 total.
      4. Each composer represented will receive at least ten copies of the compact disc per minute of music in lieu of mechanicals. Living Music will mail copies of the Compact Disc to appropriate radio stations, publications, and record stores. Additionally, the CDs will be distributed by CdeMUSIC and Furthermore, Living Music will mail 10 CDs per composer (or 60 copies when only one composer is represented) at no cost to the composer, to addresses supplied by the composer as long as supplies last. Note: Supplies are considered to be depleted when only 250 discs remain. Living Artist Recordings will sell those discs to raise the necessary funds for reprinting the CD.

      5. Participants may sell their personal copies of the CD as a means for recovering the cost of participation.

      6. Any money that Living Artist Recordings gains from selling the CD will be used for further promotional activities involved with the label.

      7. The compact disc will contain program notes of each piece and short biography information on each composer and performer. A maximum of twelve pages is allowed for the booklet.

      8. The booklet cover will be full color and the CD will be packaged (shrink rapped). It will also have a bar-code as most distributors and recording outlets require a bar code.
