The International Space Time Concerto Competition (ISTCC) in 2012 at the Newcastle Conservatorium of Music gave us the opportunity to explore networked music performance (NMP) and its utilisation in the concerto form.

From a music performance perspective the challenges facing NMP involve:

• Visual Communication (sight lines)
• Sonic Communication (acoustics, latency, loops)
• Types of musical interactions and textures
• Integration of performing spaces

We addressed these challenges from a historical perspective by re-examining the concerto form.
