    Typical instrumentation may include piano with strings, woodwinds, brass, and/or rhythm section, with or without electronic processing.
    Priority will be given to works of 12 minutes or less that focus on improvisation and/or aleatoric techniques, graphic scores, flexible notation, and interpretative notation. Works can include options for improvised live processing, and motivic, verbal, and chord-based improvisation.
    Selected composers will be given the option of arranging their piece for specific instrumentation. Instrumentation will be confirmed 3 months prior to the performance.
