[ also posted at http://www.stasisfield.com/space/future/ ]

++

Stasisfield and the Stasis_Space net.gallery present the call for submissions for a new exhibition of image and sound.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

THE RESONANT IMAGE : Contemporary Graphic Scores and Performances

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Graphic scores are images created to convey instructions for the performance of sound or music without the inclusion of standard musical notation. The Resonant Image, a new two-stage exhibition in the Stasis_Space gallery, will explore the creation and interpretation of graphic scores by contemporary artists. In Stage 01 of the exhibition, a series of new graphic scores by a variety of artists will be displayed for a four month period. During those four months, another set of artists will be asked to create sonic interpretations of these scores. Stage 02 of the exhibition will present the best of these performances as downloadable mp3s.

+++

CALL FOR ENTRIES: STAGE 01

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

WHAT TO SUBMIT:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Submissions should take into consideration two factors: their ability to be displayed on the Web, as well as their ability to be used practically during a performance. Images should be accompanied by explanatory text with instructions for performance.

Scores should be inherently flexible in their ability to be performed by as few as one or as many as ten or more artists. The more flexible the score, the better chance it has to be recorded by an interested artist or group of artists.

Scores may take two forms:

+ STILL IMAGES should be able to be printed as a high-resolution PDF file, as well as be displayed on the Web as a GIF, JPG or PNG.

+ MOVING IMAGES are also acceptable. Again, practicality in their use during a performance as well as their ability to be displayed on the Web are the primary concerns. Acceptable file formats include MOV, MPG, SWF. Other formats may be accepted; submit a written proposal via e-mail before submitting your final piece.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

WHAT NOT TO SUBMIT:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Please do NOT submit screen shots of MAX/MSP patches or other software-specific visuals. This project is intended as an investigation of human artistic translation into sound of visual imagery that may stand on its own as a work of visual art. While software patch graphics or screen shots may have an inherent beauty, they are not considered to be within the aesthetic bounds of this project.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

HOW TO SUBMIT:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

+ STILL IMAGES

E-mail GIF, JPG or PNG files ONLY (not PDFs) to space@stasisfield.com. If your image is accepted for the exhibition, you will be contacted to provide a high-resolution version of the image. Alternatively, you may mail a CDR containing high and low resolution versions of your image(s) to the submission address below (see Where to Submit).

+ MOVING IMAGES

E-mail a PROPOSAL for your project. If you have your own server space, you may send a link to a finished piece. If you do not have access to server space, you may send your project on CDR to the submission address below (see Where to Submit).

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

WHERE TO SUBMIT:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Works on CDR should be mailed to:

Stasisfield.com
P.O. Box 66
Evanston, IL 60204-0066

Web-ready still images and proposals/links for moving images may be e-mailed to:
space@stasisfield.com

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

SUBMISSION DEADLINE:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

+ The deadline for Stage 01 submissions is MARCH 31, 2005.

+ Stage 01 is scheduled to premiere on MAY 2, 2005.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thanks for your interest in this project, I look forward to reviewing your submissions!

[1] project overview

In May 2003, Stasisfield will release its second compilation CD-R in
the sonic planar analysis series. the audible still-life : sonic
planar analysis : 02 will contain sound pieces based around a common
theme featuring contributions by, among others,

jeremy boyle / john hudak / irving + orser / neil jendon

john kannenberg / koura / mou, lips! / jon mueller

plank / hal rammel / trace reddell / sawako / malte steiner

Simultaneously, a complementary digital art exhibition based on the
same theme will be launched at the Stasis_Space gallery :

[ http://www.stasisfield.com/space ]

Both the compilation CD-R and the online exhibition will present a
collection of interdisciplinary artworks derived from still-life
set-ups.

>>

[2] call for works : Stasis_Space exhibition

PLEASE NOTE: This call for works relates ONLY to the online
exhibition portion of the audible still-life project.

Pieces for the audible still-life Stasis_Space exhibition will
consist of audio portraits of still-life set-ups [no longer than 3
minutes in duration], as well as either a photograph or video clip of
the corresponding still-life. Artists may also submit a drawing or
painting of their still-life [digital or conventional media are
acceptable].

In creating the still-lives, artists should approach their
construction in the same manner in which a visual artist would set up
a still-life for a drawing or painting. Still-lives should consist of
either a single object or a grouping of objects specifically placed
together by the artist.

Objects within the still-life should be chosen for both their visual
and audible aesthetic value, and should be arranged in a manner that
lends itself to visual and sonic exploration. This should NOT be
approached as a sculpture, but rather as a grouping of objects from
which an artwork will be made. The still-life is a catalyst for
creating a finished artwork, NOT a finished artwork itself.

While creating your still-life, keep in mind the following questions:

1. What is a still-life?

2. Can a still-life move? Can it talk?

3. Why should an artist create art from a still-life in the 21st Century?

4. Does a still-life have to contain conventional "objects," or could
the definition of "object" be approached from a different perspective?

The audio portion of each submission can EITHER be an untreated field
recording of a still-life set-up, OR an audio composition created
using sampled field recordings of the still-life set-up.

>>

[3] submission details + what to submit

+ This will be a juried exhibition. Not every piece submitted will be included.

+ Audio pieces must be NO LONGER than three minutes.

WHAT YOU NEED TO SUBMIT:

1. a photograph or video of your still-life set-up.

1a. [ OPTIONAL ] a drawing or painting of your still-life, using
either traditional or digital methods.

2. Your audio piece [ either an untreated field recording of your
still-life or a composition using samples of a field recording of
your still-life ]. Audio should be submitted either as an AIFF or WAV
file.

3. Please include a short [ one paragraph maximum ] artist statement
describing your piece and process.

4. A short artist biography and representative photo/image.
