GLOBAL vs. LOCAL: THE ART OF TRANSLOCALITY

perspective of locality and gloval networked community.

CHINA GATES

Call for Participation
Mobile Music Performance
Zurich, Switzerland

The Digital Art Weeks 2006, organized by members of the Computer
Science Department of the ETH Zurich, is looking for up to twelve
persons who are interested in contemporary music and art who would be
interested in participating on a voluntary basis for the performance of
a new Mobil-Music work under the direction of Sound Artist, Art Clay
using GPS and mobile computer technologies.

Aesthetically, the work China Gates for tuned gongs and Wrist Conductor
is rooted in works for open public space and belongs to a series of
works, which celebrate the use of innovative mobile technologies to
explore public space and audience. The work is technically based on
possibilities of synchronizing a group of performers using the clock
pulse emitted by satellites. The GPS Wrist Conductor signals each
player when to hit the gong. An intense rippling effect results as the
players gradually move around the park and the music of the gongs shift
back and fourth from intense chords to exotic melodies.

The preparation for the event will take place in the form of a
mini-workshop on mobile music and sound in open space.

Persons interested in participating are asked to apply by sending a
message to the below stated email address. Please include a short
biography (50 words) telling us about yourself and why you would you
like to participate. Selected players will receive a festival pass for
all Digital Art Weeks 06 events.

STEREOPHONIC SOUNDSCAPE

Call for Works

The Digital Art Weeks of ETH Zurich and the Stereolith Speaker System
Company,
Switzerland, would like to invite audio artists to submit soundscape
works.
Each work must be in stereo and not more than 10 minutes in length. The
works
will be chosen on their ability to "evoke" the presence of things or
beings
in space and to the extent in which the work "immerses" the listener
into
a completely imaginary sonic environment.

Stereolith is an innovative reproduction system for the re-creation of
recordings
made to playback in stereo. Unlike traditional loudspeaker
configurations,
the Stereolith is a single construction in which both the "left" and the
"right" channels have been incorporated. In this way, the system can be
installed
at any point within the listening space and allows the listener to
experience
a true stereo effect of each work from any point within the space as if
it
was a live event.

Please submit all works in .aiff format on a CD. Please include the
title
of the work, a short description of it no more than 100 words)and a
short
biography of the author of the work (no more than 50 words). Selected
works
will be presented on the Stereolith Systems over a period of 4 days from
the 12th to the 15th of July 2006 in the VisDome of ETH Zurich in
conjunction
with the exhibition Zeitschnitt which will include projected works from
various
artists throughout Europe. Information about each audio artist,
soundscape
work and the time it can be heard will be announced in the events
program.

Deadline: Friday, 14th April 2006.
Notification of acceptance of proposals will be sent out on or before
Friday,
5th May 2006.
