Call for Local and National Experimental Sound Artists
Deadline for submissions: Submissions Now Closed
Sounds Like Festival Dates: Thursday, July 25 through Saturday, July 27th, 2013.
Sounds Like invites local, national and international artists to submit proposals for the third iteration of Saskatchewan’s only audio art festival! We are looking for performance- oriented audio art projects that may (or may not) incorporate video projection and/or sculptural components for the third iteration of the Sounds Like Audio Art Festival.
Selections for the festival will be made by a programming committee comprised of representatives from the three parent organizations: AKA Gallery, Holophon and PAVED Arts. Live performances will be staged in our shared, multipurpose event space at the AKA/PAVED Arts building. Additional installation works may be programmed to occupy surrounding spaces, including but not limited to the main floor gallery spaces, at the discretion of the programming committee.
Sounds Like showcases contemporary audio art, installation and performance from across the country. Individuals and/or collectives engaged in experimental sound projects are encouraged to apply with sound and video documentation of recent projects relevant to the proposal. In addition please provide a detailed project description, current Curriculum Vitae and any relevant technical details related to staging the proposed works.
Media Submission Guidelines: 1 to 4 audio/video clips on a CD-R or DVD-R; up to 10 jpeg images (optional), RGB, 1080 x 810 pixels; along with a printed list of submitted works containing relevant details of the support material and/or review instructions.
