Call for Papers: Music and Sound Art

Dates or Deadline: 
11 March 2020 to 29 February 2024
Organized by: 
Leonardo Journal
Nick Cronbach

The editors of Leonardo are pleased to announce that beginning in 2021 we will publish 6 issues of Leonardo annually and elevate the visibility of music and sound art with yearlong inclusion. With this, we will be retiring Leonardo Music Journal as a separate publication after Volume 30, December 2020.

The Music and Sound Art section of Leonardo journal will feature articles written by composers and artists about their own work in three editorial areas: First, the interplay between new technologies, music and sound art. Second, documentation on ways in which contemporary science and technology are changing our understanding of sound and music, as well as other ways in which science and technology may be relevant to contemporary composers and sound artists. Third, the work of composers and sound artists developing new multimedia art forms that combine sound with other media, particularly works that take advantage of new multimedia and interactive technologies.

This call is open ended, and we accept submissions at any time.


We are soliciting articles (papers of up to 5,000 words) and shorter artists' statements (up to 2,000 words).
