Information / Materials to be sent to the CEC via email

  1. Please inform the production group about any “special features” in the piece: these may include such things as “digital noise”; un-expected drops or increases in level; sudden, long and/or unexpected silences, or any other sounds that could be heard by the production group as dropout, loss of signal, failure of the medium or unwanted digital artifact.
  2. Graphics may be submitted in any file format. These should be compressed in either JPEG or GIF format.
  3. Submissions of scores as PDF files is encouraged, where relevant.

All submissions will be kept in the CEC’s archives; submissions will not be returned to the composer.

SONUS audio, text and graphic submissions may be updated or removed at any time by emailing a request.
