This will also be the deadline for all participant composers to send all necessary performance materials and technical information via a Google Form to SPLICE. You must arrive at SPLICE Institute between noon and 5 pm Sunday, June 23rd in order to have your collaborative meeting.


SPLICE does not pay for nor arrange travel. Participants will be put in contact with each other in order to coordinate driving to Kalamazoo and other travel. We will arrange rides to and from the airport, bus station, and train station in Kalamazoo on Saturday, June 23rd and Sunday, June 24th.


Western Michigan University's Dalton Hall provides several state-of-the-art work environments for participants at SPLICE.

This includes multiple labs with multimedia workstations, 2 classroom/lab hybrids, as well as lecture and recital halls.
