19th Jeu de temps / Times Play
Recent works by young and/or emerging composers and sound artists from or living in Canada are featured in the 19th edition of Jeu de temps / Times Play, coordinated annually by the CEC since 2000. JTTP 2018 events include a special concert in the Sound Junction festival, produced by the University of Sheffield Sound Studios in April 2019.
Jeu de temps / Times Play (JTTP) is an annual project aimed at supporting and encouraging new electroacoustic works by young and/or emerging sound artists from / living in Canada. A diverse international jury selects five prize-winning works. A focus issue of eContact! features all submissions to the project, and a number of international radio broadcasts and concert performances are coordinated each year. Several past winners have gone on to win prizes in other renowned electroacoustic competitions internationally, such as Bourges, Métamorphoses and the SOCAN Foundation Awards.

Over the course of 2018–19, a number of events are being produced that feature the winning works from JTTP 2018. This year’s international JTTP concert takes place in the Sound Junction festival, produced by the University of Sheffield Sound Studios (USSS).
Each year a broad range of individuals and institutions, in Canada as well as abroad, offer a generous amount of support that is essential to the success of JTTP. Additionally, donations form extensive prize packages given to the composers of the top 5 placing works.
This year’s international jury was made up of 26 individuals having a variety of backgrounds and experiences: composers, performers, representatives from various international bodies, radio personalities, electroacoustic educators, as well as past JTTP prize winners.
