Soundscape: Boston


Call for Contributions

As part of the Soundmarks exhibition at Art Interactive, June 8 – August 18, 2007, new media artists Zach Poff + N.B. Aldrich are seeking audio recordings of the Boston metropolitan area for their work Soundscape: Boston. The submission deadline is April 1, 2007.

The artists are asking local residents to contribute audio recordings of meaningful elements of their acoustic environment, whether extraordinary or commonplace: from the stories of loved ones to the hiss of the morning coffee pot.

Soundmarks is comprised of five site-specific sound and video installations by Amy Stacey Curtis and the collaborative team of Zach Poff + N.B. Aldrich. Employing both new media and traditional technologies, the artists experiment with the ways in which art can serve as a catalyst for common experience and a site for community exchange.

Please visit the website for more complete information about the project and for instructions on donating your recordings. Soundscape: Boston can only work with a community-donated database of sounds, so please contribute!
