Structure of Choir
One section of the October 18 call for works (posting immediately below) is still in German.
I’ve taken the liberty of translating the paragraph concerned:
The Vienna Jeunesse Chamber Choir features the following voices: SSSS-AAAA-TTTT-BBBB.
• As a general rule all the voices used must act as soloists (choral scoring must strictly be used as a special timbral technique.)
• Electronics are generally an option, via playback (2 channels). The following rules apply to the use of live electronics:
the patch and the operation instructions must be sent with the score; the individual voices cannot be mic’ed directly.
In all cases the cues for the electronic part must be notated in the score.
• In the ‘Vocal Theatre’ category additional props are permitted provided the performers are able to use/work them (see above).
