Live Stage: EarZoom Sonic Arts Festival [sl Ljubljana]

ear2.jpgEarZoom – sonic arts festival :: IRZU institute for sonic arts research announces the second edition of EarZoom – sonic arts festival :: October 2nd, 2010 at 3:00 p.m. to October 7, 2010 at 11:30 p.m. :: at different locations in Ljubljana, Slovenia ::

IRZU – the Institute for sonic Arts Research was founded in 2008 in Ljubljana with the aim of filling a local content gap in the interdisciplinary field of contemporary sonic arts. Its activities cover the following three main areas: audio technology research (digital signal processing, sonic interaction design, music information retrieval, non-linear acoustics, etc.), artistic productions (performances, exhibitions, installations, films) and educational projects (lectures, workshops), which are mostly aimed at transmitting basic knowledge on the use of digital technologies and conceptual approaches in sonic arts, to local composers and inter-media artists.

In its second year, the EarZoom festival is being produced in collaboration with several governmental and non-governmental institutions, which are contributing individual program segments as well as the infrastructure for its realization. The aim of the festival is creating a referential international platform for discussing the latest developments within audio technology research and the artistic trends of sonic practices.

EarZoom 2010 is featuring around forty international artists and scientists presenting state of the art research in exciting disciplines like machine listening, algorithmic composition, new interfaces for musical expression, gesture recognition, ubiquitous computing, ambisonic systems for virtual sound environment synthesis, etc.

In Slovenia, these research areas are not yet developed, which was also one of the main reasons for establishing an Institute for Sonic Arts Research. Since IRZU is a private initiative, the successful implementation of its program agenda as a research, production and education institute, relies strongly on the EarZoom festival, which has a crucial function in promoting the importance as well as creating an international context for IRZU’s activities within the local environment. As a non governmental organization, IRZU is constantly required to legitimize its existence and fight for securing the financial means required for running its program. In order to operate, we needed to develop several different fund-raising strategies and after two years of existence, it can be said that the efforts towards keeping the institute alive and functioning are still exceeding the efforts towards developing professional contents. For this reason we decided to put these and other questions, concerning survival and identity creation within the institutional landscape, in the focus of this years festival edition. This kind of perspective extends the scope of the festival and opens a discussion concerning a broader range of cultural workers sharing a similar situation.

The core of EarZoom is a three-day symposium featuring artists, researchers and curators representing governmental- and non-governmental institutions from all over the world. The main aim of the symposium is still the presentation of contemporary trends in technology based art practices, but furthermore, a critical reflection on how these particular contents are interwoven with local institutional systems.
