[Jeu de temps / Times Play 2018]
Events, Concerts and Radio Broadcasts
For each edition of JTTP the CEC coordinates a number of public presentations of submissions in various contexts across Canada and internationally. JTTP Radio Partners present the 5 Winning Works and Composers in a JTTP-dedicated show. Or selections from all 33 Participants and Submissions to JTTP 2018 can be chosen for a unique, curated presentation of the project.
In recent years, winners have also been presented in prestigious festival contexts with international Partners. Montréal’s Akousma Festival presents the 1st Prize work on an annual basis in their fall festival, and in April 2019, the top 5 winners of JTTP 2017 have been invited to perform their compositions in a dedicated concert in the University of Sheffield’s Sound Junction festival.
These public presentations of JTTP works are an excellent complement to the extensive prize packages offered to the top 5 placing composers (see the Awards, Project Partners and Support page), and through these presentations, JTTP Partners help the CEC promote the work of young / emerging composers and sound artists living in or from Canada within various national and international contexts.
Keep an eye on the CEC’s Facebook Events page for an overview of all upcoming CEC activities!

Coordinated by the CEC since 2000, JTTP is an annual project supporting the work of young and emerging composers / sound artists from or living in Canada.
A programme devoted to all that is new and creative in the exploration of sound, Electric Sense ranges from the tightly composed to the wildly improvised and whatever may be found in between. Traditional instruments to new inventions. Acoustic, electroacoustic, purely electronic, field recordings and found sounds. Melodic to abrasive to totally indescribable. If you’ve heard it before, you probably won’t hear it here. Hosted by James Bailey, Wednesdays 23:00–00:00 onCIUT 89.5 FM (Toronto ON). Electric Sense on Facebook.
The CEC wishes to thank the Canada Council for the Arts, the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec and the SOCAN Foundation for supporting the presence of JTTP winners and a CEC representative at the April 2019 Sound Junction event.
