20th 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 20th edition of Jeu de temps / Times Play, coordinated annually by the CEC since 2000.
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 adjudicates and selects the top five prize-winning works. For each edition of the project, a series of events are coordinated featuring JTTP works, including radio broadcasts of JTTP submissions and performances of the winning works in concert by our Project Partners in Canada and abroad. Prize packages are awarded to the composers of the five top-placing works, and all submissions are featured on these pages and in Sonus, the CEC’s online Jukebox for electroacoustic and related practices.

The JTTP 2019 Photo Album features images of the winners and pictures taken at events where winning Jeu de temps / Times Play works were presented.
A total of 30 recent works by composers living in Canada and Norway were submitted to JTTP 2019. Here you can read the programme notes and composer bios for all submissions or just sit back and enjoy the pieces — acousmatic and videomusic works, and more!
Over the course of 2019–20, a number of events are being produced that feature the winning works from JTTP 2019.
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 15 individuals having a variety of backgrounds and experiences: composers, performers, representatives from various international bodies, radio personalities, electroacoustic educators, as well as past JTTP prizewinners.
