Sonic Portraits Invited

naisa_logo.jpgNew Adventures in Sound Art 2007 :: Call for Submissions on the theme A Sonic Portrait :: Deadline: September 30, 2007.

New Adventures in Sound Art (NAISA) invites artists of all ages and nationalities to submit works on the theme A Sonic Portrait for consideration in 2008 programming for the annual Deep Wireless, Sound Travels, and SOUNDplay festivals, produced by New Adventures in Sound Art in Toronto, Canada. Artists may submit works in one or all of the following four categories: 1) Radio Art, 2) Electroacoustic Music, 3) Videomusic and 4) Installation Art (Note: please send separate submission forms for each entry).

A Sonic Portrait could be a portrait of a person, place or thing done entirely in sound, an audio journal, a soundscape portrait, sound mapping, a visualization of a sound and so on. Individual interpretations or variations on the theme are encouraged:

All submitted works must respond in some way to the theme A Sonic Portrait in order to be considered for 2008 NAISA programming.

1) Radio Art (for Deep Wireless)

The Radio Art category is for works conceived for radio or that use radio and other wireless technology in their creation or that plays with the idea of radio or wireless technology. Works submitted to this category must be less than 60 minutes in duration. Special consideration will be given to 1 minute radio art pieces for broadcast as well as 1 page proposals for collaboration on translocal broadcast performances.

Pieces will be selected for broadcast within Canada and on several international radio stations in May 2008 as part of the Deep Wireless festival of radio and transmission art.

Both Canadian and International radio art submissions will be considered for inclusion in the following:

-The Deep Wireless 4 radio art compilation CD
-The radio art interventions (1 minute pieces played guerilla-style on radio stations during
the Deep Wireless festival)
-The Radio Art Salon – a listening gallery of radio art works exhibited for the month of
May.

A small number of Canadian artists will be chosen from the submissions to be part of the Deep Wireless/CBC’s Outfront Commissioning Programme in 2008 with residencies at Charles Street Video in Toronto.

2) Electroacoustic Music (for Sound Travels)

The Electroacoustic Music category is for multi-channel and stereo works less than 20 minutes in duration and conceived for concert performance or presentation in the Sound Travels festival of sound art on Toronto Island. Preferred formats for performance presentation include 5.1, octaphonic and 12 channel formats in both acousmatic (tape), live and mixed formats. Please indicate in the notes the intended format of presentation and any required instrumentation or specialized equipment.

3) Videomusic (for SOUNDplay)

The Videomusic category is for works that explore non-narrative abstraction with equal emphasis on sound and image. Submitted works will be considered for video screenings with either stereo or multi- channel playback. Submitted works will also be considered for screenings in either a performance venue or a small-size gallery alongside other works selected from this call for submissions.

4) Installation Art (for Deep Wireless, Sound Travels or SOUNDplay)

Installation proposals of previously realized works for site-specific and gallery installations with no fixed duration will be considered for presentation as part of Deep Wireless, Sound Travels or SOUNDplay. Site-specific works can be for indoor or outdoor locations. Works can use multichannel or single channel playback and may incorporate any number of media, but must feature original sound as a primary element. Please attach a list of the necessary equipment required to mount the installation and which of these items can be supplied by the artist. Submissions should include audio, video or audio-video documentation of previously realized versions of the work.

Submission Guidelines

Please submit a completed application form (in digital format if possible) along with the proposed works on CD or DVD. To download the submission form please go to <http://www.naisa.ca/opportunities.html#calls>

For multichannel works, please include a stereo reduction for reference purposes only. For video works, please include a DVD copy for reference only. Screening masters will be requested later if the work is to be programmed. For installation works, please attach a
list of required equipment with indications of equipment that can be supplied by the artist.

Materials not submitted with a self-addressed stamped envelope will remain in the archives of New Adventures in Sound Art and will not be returned. Please don’t send original copies.

Submissions must be postmarked no later than September 30, 2007 and mailed to: New Adventures in Sound Art, 401 Richmond Street West #358, Toronto, ON M5V 3A8.
