ArtCast: open call for sound art *deadline for submissions next week*


Deadline:
Fri Sep 07, 2007 07:08

ArtCast: open call for sound art
For full information and details of how to submit visit www.folly.co.uk/ArtCast

deadline for submissions Friday 14th September 2007

folly, a leading digital arts organisation working in Lancashire, Cumbria and online, is developing ArtCast, an ongoing series of podcasting programmes at www.folly.co.uk, as a platform for public access to new and innovative sound art.

Building on the success of OWN [SOUND] ART (2007) at www.folly.co.uk/soundnetwork, a series of podcasts specially commissioned in partnership with SoundNetwork, folly intends to deliver a quarterly series of podcasts exploring the possibilities of the medium, and will launch the first in this series as part of VELOCITY, folly's second Festival of Digital Culture - www.folly.co.uk/velocity

folly is calling for open submissions of existing audio work, from the broad spectrum of contemporary sound art practice. Submissions should address themes and subjects broadly relating to the ethos of VELOCITY, including but not limited to: travel, movement, landscape, engagement with communities, rural sustainability.

VELOCITY will take place on and around the rail route from Lancaster to Barrow-in-Furness in the North West of England, so folly is looking for podcastable content which can be downloaded and experienced on journeys through and around this area. As part of the festival, folly is also keen to broadcast selected works via the loud speaker systems at stations along the rail route.

Submissions are welcome from all artists working with sound, experimental musicians and composers, writers and performance artists etc, basically anyone who has created work which they consider to be suitable for an audio podcast.

Sonic Arts Network, www.sonicartsnetwork.org, will join folly in the selection of works in late September 2007
