The goal of this project is to include many composers. Another method for the 60x60 project to accomplish this goal is to hold regional concerts including works that are worthy to be heard and not selected for the main project. For 2004 the 60x60 project will hold its first regional concert in Los Angeles, California. It will include composers from the Pacific Basin area, including countries such as Austrailia, Western Canada, Korea, Japan, The Western United States and more.

60x60 Project
The goal of this project is to include many different composers. We are doing this in several different ways. One is to hold regional concerts. In areas where we have received many submissions we are looking to hold regional concerts wtih different selections for the 60x60 project (or remixes.) Another way we are promoting this project is collaborating with different media. Last year we worked with video artists, this year we hope to work with painters, sculptors, dancers and other artists. Please contact us for more details about these endeavors. Most importantly we are continuing this project for years to come. We are calling for 60 second (or less) works for our third annual project in 2005.
