Dub Shop at Kleio Projects is a pop-up exhibition organized by ((audience)) co-curators Alexis Bhagat and Lauren Rosati.

A dubplate is a one-off acetate disc recording which contains an unreleased recording, an exclusive version of an existing recording, or a test recording for a master track. Since they are doubled or “dubbed” versions of an original track, they have a limited life span and can only be played about fifty times. Dub Shop is similarly time-sensitive—lasting only for two days—and will feature exclusive, one-off and unique artworks by sound artists and musicians including dub plates; limited edition records, CDs and DVDs; silk screened posters; hand-made electronic instruments; and other constructions.

The exhibition will be on view on Saturday, March 6 and Sunday, March 7, 2010 from 12 to 7pm. From 2-6pm each day, artists in the exhibition will host informal talks about their practice and play their exhibited works on in-house turntables. Please visit the ((audience)) news page at http://lrlx.wordpress.com for the complete lineup of presentations and performances.

Sound Off


Dates:
Wed Aug 26, 2009 00:00 - Thu Aug 13, 2009

((audience)) announces the inauguration of SOUND OFF -
a monthly salon at our temporary headquarters in the Financial District

SOUND OFF
Wednesday, August 26, 2009 / 7pm
((audience)) HQ / 125 Maiden Lane, NYC / 9th Floor

NEW YORK - ((audience)) announces the launch of SOUND OFF, a monthly event at our temporary headquarters at 125 Maiden Lane in Lower Manhattan.

((audience)), a traveling festival of 5.1 surround sound art, was recently awarded a temporary office space by Lower Manhattan Cultural Council’s Swing Space program. In keeping with our mission to provide and establish new contexts for sound art, ((audience)) is inviting a broad range of artists and performers to visit our HQ in order to imagine aloud and together ways to acoustically activate this defunct office space.

The inauguration of SOUND OFF will be simultaneously a charrette, a laying of groundwork and an informal salon during which artists and attendees can “listen” to and devise proposals for ((audience)) HQ and present them to the assembled audience; plan for future instances of SOUND OFF and also for SPEAKERS, a forthcoming radio program of recorded roundtable discussions; and finally, converse, share and socialize.

This event is open to the public, but you must RSVP by August 25 to Lauren Rosati at lauren@au.dience.org. Attendees must bring photo ID.

DIRECTIONS:
By Subway:
2/3/4/5 to Wall Street or J/M/Z to Broad Street. Exit onto Wall Street. Walk East on Wall Street to the corner of Pearl Street. Walk three blocks North on Pearl Street to Maiden Lane. 125 Maiden Lane is between Pearl and Water Streets.

ABOUT ((AUDIENCE))
((audience)) is an unprecedented project that explores the cinema as a 21st century concert hall. Currently, sound artists often must “perform” what are essentially multi-track recordings, interpreting the playback of their compositions to account for technical and acoustic variations in different sites. ((audience)) bypasses this problem by considering the cinema-hall as a standard technical and acoustic platform and site. The centerpiece of ((audience)) is a 2 ½ hour “film” of 5.1 surround sound works by seven international artists intended for presentation in movie theaters as “cinema in the dark.”

((audience)) is dedicated to the advancement of aural arts by providing wide distribution and new contexts for works by emerging and established sound artists and composers. For our first decade, ((audience)) will focus on the cinema as a technical and distributive platform, organizing a biennial nomadic art festival in partnership with select arts organizations worldwide.

Conceived in 2006, ((audience)) will premiere in Syracuse, NY this year and will continue to travel internationally through 2010. We are partnering with local arts organizations in cities worldwide and expect to hold 12 further screenings/festivals across New York and Califonia; in Minneapolis, MN; Providence, RI; Toronto and Montreal, Canada; Beirut, Lebanon; Stockholm, Sweden and Berlin, Germany. Curatorial lectures, performances, artist presentations and exhibitions will coincide with screenings on a city-to-city basis. For more information on ((audience)), visit http://au.dience.org.

ABOUT ((audience))

((audience)) is a nomadic biennial festival of sound art, organized by Alexis Bhagat and Lauren Rosati. The centerpiece of ((audience09)) is a 2 ½ hour program of 5.1 surround sound works (with no visual accompaniment) by seven international artists, to be presented in pitch black cinema halls. ((audience)) promotes the exploration of the cinema as a concert hall for the 21st century.

((audience)) screenings and events are organized in partnership with local art centers.
Performances, lectures, radio broadcasts and other events are organized on a city-by-city basis. Our upstate New York ((audience09)) festival is being organized in association with the Red House Gallery in Syracuse, NY and will take place from September 17- 27, 2009.

CATEGORIES

Live Performance for 5.1 Diffusion
We primarily seek statements of interest and performance proposals from artists who have experimented with 5.1 diffusion. Performers working with multichannel diffusion other than 5.1 are also invited to submit. Genres could include: extended vocal work, computer music, electroacoustic music, noise, phonographic collage or manipulation.

GUIDELINES
Performance proposals and statements of interest must include video documentation of relevant past performances on DVD. Please also include a CV or resume, artist statement and full contact information.

Students and emerging artists are especially encouraged to apply for the performance category.

Cinema-in-the-Dark
We seek 5.1 surround and stereo works, which are “cinematic,” in any way that artists interpret that term. We are especially interested in narrative, poetic or dramatic works that experiment with spatialization or in musical works that play with the traditional idea of cinematic surround sound.
5.1 submissions are preferred. 5.1 submissions will also be considered for inclusion in the ((audience11)) main program. Stereo works may be submitted, and will be considered both for broadcast on Red House Art Radio during the ((audience09)) festival.
