CALL FOR SHORT STEREOPHONIC SOUNDSCAPE & HOERSPIEL WORKS

>A DIAMOND IN THE MUD<
A Miniature Audio Exhibition of Stereophonic Soundscape & Hörspiel Works

PROJECT CONCEPT:
It is an Asian concept rooted in Buddhism that self-cultivation can be developed at home as a householder and is not merely confined to a temple or monastery. Buddhist believe that enlightened beings are those who "grew" out of the "mud" of the material world. So, like the lotus flower, which penetrates through sullied mud and water, but emerges unspoiled, enlightened beings are beautiful and pure even though they grow up in the material world. The phrase "a diamond in the mud" is an analogy for this and in keeping with it the Digital Art Weeks would like to issue this call to artists and to submit pre recorded works (Soundscape, Hörspiel, Poetry) in regard to the beautiful and the sullied. The works will be chosen on their ability to transcend the listeners into a "moment of tranquilly" and out of the confines of the everyday, or as expressed in the Diamond Sutra: "Dwell upon nothing and produce the pure mind."

PLAYBACK SYSTEM:
Constructed as a dock for Apple's famed iPod, the iCarta stereophonic audio playback system will be used to play back all of the selected works. The systems not only offers an interesting solution for public pod-casting, but it also acts uniquely as a bathroom dispenser for the indispensable: Le papier toilette.

- Art Clay, DAW, Artistic Director (c) 2008

DEADLINE: Moday, 15th September 2008. Notification of acceptance of proposals will be sent out on or before Monday, 22nd September 2008.

Second Lives, Virtual Identities and Fragging

"N00sphere Playground" by Sachiko Hayashi
http://xrl.us/HUMlabSL
Mimicking the from of a sphere in a real-life playground, "N00sphere Playground" is an interactive sound installation in which a sphere of enjoyment is created through play and experience of sounds. Beneath its surface is an underlying notion of noosphere, closely related to Henri Bergson's "Élan Vital" and its role in evolution.
