Troy, N.Y. - Since 2005, the Curtis R. Priem Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC) has established a vibrant residency program that has hosted over 40 artists and their collaborators, spanning theater, dance, music, video, and installation. While EMPAC will continue its open call residency program, EMPAC is pleased to announce four additional focused initiatives:
‐ Audio Production / Post‐Production
For sound recording, development of multichannel sound works, documentation, mastering, mixing, film scoring, or any other task involving microphones, speakers, consoles and computers.
‐ Creative Research
Provides artists, writers, and theorists with the opportunity to conduct research over extended periods of time (minimum six weeks).
‐ Dance / Theater
To rehearse, workshop or finalize a production. Provides a group of up to six individuals a two‐week rehearsal period in a 3,300 sq. ft. black box space with full production support.
‐ Video Production / Post‐Production
For multiple camera shoots, documentation of a performance, development of multichannel video projection, digital video post‐production, or any project involving HD video cameras, computers, and projectors.
EMPAC’s unique facilities offer four major venues including a Concert Hall, Theater, and two black box Studios, in addition to artists in residence studios, and a state of the art infrastructure. To apply, please include a letter of intent, a project description, a resume or CV for all major collaborators, as well as works, samples, and other supporting materials. Proposals are reviewed by EMPAC curators four times a year. Upcoming reviews will take place on October 15, January 14, April 15, and July 15. In general, residencies are scheduled six months to one year in advance.
