OPPORTUNITY

2013 Call For Submissions UNDO / REDO


Deadline:
Sun Nov 10, 2013 23:59

New Adventures in Sound Art (NAISA) invites artists of all ages and nationalities to submit works on the theme UNDO / REDO for consideration in New Adventures in Sound Art's 2014 programming in Toronto, Canada.

Errors in judgement, actions you'd rather not have made; or conversely that perfect moment you'd like to relive, or a future you'd like built from the foundation of past successes. What if you could apply a simple editing function to your life? What if with the magic of digital technology you are enabled to undo or redo an action or group of actions? What would that sound like?

Preference in programming will be given to works that respond in some way to the theme UNDO / REDO: revisiting the past and/or changing the future. Individual interpretations or variations on the theme are encouraged, but should be realized with sound as the primary component. NAISA would also like to encourage artists to submit works on the theme UNDO / REDO for performance, gallery exhibit, screening, webcast or audio stream, radio broadcast, network or translocal performance, mobile experiences and any other emerging formats that include sound as a primary element. Please complete in full the online submission form and upload your audio by midnight on November 15, 2013. Note: there is a $5 submission fee in order to defray the cost of processing the submissions. All works chosen for presentation will receive an artist fee.

Sonic Suit (2012) by Satoshi Morita
By wearing "Sonic Suit," audible sound reaches the ears through the air, while vibrotactile sonic vibrations excite sense receptors of the skin on several locations in the upper torso. Sonic Suit provides audiences with a heightened physical perception of the everyday world.

Tele Echo Tube is a speaking tube installation that vocally interacts with a remote forest through a networked remote-controlled speaker and microphone through the slightly vibrating lamp-shade like interface.
