COMMISSIONS FOR SOUNDTOYS.
Arts Council of England is funding a series of commissions.
1. We are looking for artists to make proposals for new interpretations of the artworks on soundtoys.net. All the work is held online in a database. We want artists to create innovative front end interfaces to connect to the rest of the site. No technology is excluded and all ideas will be considered. Things that might be suitable as suggestions could be a text searcher to link to the Soundtoys journal and bring up texts about Soundtoys, a 3D space to connect to the online artist’s works or you could make a selection of works you like and make an interface to control and access them. Technologies that you could use can be anything that will work on the web such as flash, shockwave, processing, java, html, etc. These interfaces can be as experimental and audio visual as you want. To apply, please send in a clear proposal that includes how you would make it, your technical expertise, and a budget. Some sketches, ideas, and links to other works you have made would also be helpful. We have a budget of 6000 about (12000 dollars) to make 4 - 6 commissions. Deadline 20 April.
SEND IN VIA EMAIL your proposal, ideas, sketched and technical expertise.
2. Soundtoys is also putting together a CDROM which will feature artworks from the past five years. We are looking for a proposal from someone who can make the interface for the CDROM for the artworks. We want an interesting audio visual interface to control and connect to the works on the CDROM. Anyone interested should send in sketches and a proposal, and examples of previous work. We have a budget of 1000 pounds or 2000 dollars to make the design and interface. .Deadline 20th MAy
