The work may not be over 8 minutes long.
Your sound must be performance ready. If you are selected to perform, you will have a brief time to go through your sound cues with the Technical Director. Do not expect to be able to create your cues at that time or to have the Technical Director search around on your device for a particular sound. If it is not performance ready, it will not be performed.
Participants must be adults at least 18 years old.
