"Call for Artists: Composers and sound artists for New Zealand's 'Revolutions per Minute'"
2003-01-22 until 2003-02-05
NZ New Zealand (Aotearoa)
Composers and sound artists are invited to submit works for inclusion in an
upcoming sound project at The Physics Room, in August 2003, and a
simultaneous and interlinked series of commissioned broadcasts for Radio
New Zealand's 'Revolutions per Minute' program, on Sundays, 3pm. Both the
exhibition and the broadcast series are intended to feature significant
explorations in sound from New Zealand artists and musicians resident
locally and overseas, irrespective of aesthetic direction, technical means
or cultural context.
The project is focused around including a diverse range of practitioners
from a variety of backgrounds, and it is hoped it will provide an eclectic
and vigorous forum for New Zealand contemporary sound art practice.
Contributions are sought from those whose practice is either music or art
based, who have an interest in making work both for the space of the
gallery and the space of radio, and is centered around (for example) sound
installation, contemporary electro-acoustic composition, field acoustics,
post-glitch, sound sculpture or experimental documentary. The main criteria
for selection will be the innovative direction and general quality of the
work, so proposals from both established practitioners and emergent artists
Selected works will be featured together in the August exhibition, which
will run for the duration of a month in a site specific environment
designed inside one of the Physics Room's two exhibition spaces. During the
exhibition each work will be given its own slot on National Radio's RPM
show, to be broadcast together with a short introductory statement on the
work and the composer/sound artist. Selected works will also be included in
any CDR and/or print catalogue created to document the project, and will
also become permanent items in the New Zealand Sound Archives.
Submissions should include biographical information on composers/artists
together with artistic statements and other supplied data including
examples of work on CD.
Deadline: 5th February, 2003.
