CALL FOR ACOUSTIC.SPACE TEXTS

ACOUSTIC.SPACE is an exploration into the acoustic dimension of electronic technology and networked media environment, featuring a series of magazines (1998-2000), Xchange - streaming audio network and mailinglist (since 1997), the Acoustic.Space.Lab research programme (since 2001) and now an upcoming book will be the closing publication of this period.

This book --"Acoustic.Space.Reader"-- will contain research texts and articles on the experiments, activities and tactical interventions of artists, media activists and 'cultural scientists', who use audio communication tools to build new contexts and open spaces by pushing the boundaries of electro-acoustic environments, acoustic cyberspace, radio ether and emerging cell-space.

The book will include also a DVD - a multi-media research of VIRAC radiotelescope in Latvia: from history of this top-secret Soviet era military object, including precise technical data, about it's conversion to scinitific and civilian use, and to the international "Acoustic.Space.Lab"
symposium on sound art, radio and satellite technology, which took place in August 2001, with participation of more then 30 artists, radio amateurs and community radio activists from all over the world.
