a 4-night sound performance festival
spanning the fringes of aural stimulation

Submission Deadline: June 27, 2005
Performance Nights: July 20 - 23, 2005

Richard Foreman's Ontological-Hysteric Theatre is offering the opportunity for music and sound artists to participate in a new sound performance festival. We are looking for acts that vary in length from 5 to 60 minutes, and vary in style from the analog sound art, to digital noise and glitch pieces, to digitally or mechanically assisted and composed music, to musical perversions of classical instruments.

4 nights (Rough Schedule)
Wednesday July 20: analog & instrumental sound artists
Thursday July 21: digital & mechanical musicians
Friday July 22: musical perversions of classical instruments
Saturday July 23: noise and glitch artists

If you are interested in performing please send a bio paragraph, a description of what you would like to perform and digital sound file or a url where we can stream a sample of your sound art.

Submit your proposals to:
Judson Williams at judson@ontological.com
Morgan Pecelli at morganp@ontological.com

Please Note:
There is no money for performing and we have a rather simple fixed sound system for you and your collaborators to plug into that includes, 1 Tascam M216 Sound Board (16 Channel), 1 Carver PM1.5 Amplifier, and 6 WS-A200 Ramsa Speakers, which are fixed up in the air to our grid in a line facing the audience.
