Open Call | New Adventures in Sound Art / Transformations, Canada (Submission Fee)

Deadline Date: Monday June 24, midnight.

New Adventures in Sound Art (NAISA) invites artists of all ages and nationalities to submit works on the theme Transformations for consideration in New Adventures in Sound Art’s 2020 programming.

One definition of Transformation is: a marked change in form, nature or appearance. This can be seen in the numerous changes we have been experiencing over the last 10 years in how media artists have used technological advances to create works of art that reflect the transformation of our planet, human experience, social changes, ecological changes caused by overextended use of natural resources, and have even changed how we experience art. This also applies just as much to media artists who are using old technologies in new ways to transform the use and/or perception of how art is experienced.

For its 2020 programming, NAISA is interested in submissions of work that address the ideas related to the theme Transformations and creative ways that this theme can be explored. Preference in programming will be given to works that respond in some way to the theme Transformations. Individual interpretations or variations on the theme are encouraged, but should be realized with sound as the primary component. NAISA would also like to encourage artists to submit works on the theme for performance, interactive installation exhibit, audio-visual screening, radio or internet broadcast, telematics, VR/gaming, mobile experiences and any other emerging or alternative formats that include sound as a primary element.

Please complete in full the online submission form and upload your support materials by midnight on June 24, 2019.

Please Note: there is a $5 submission fee in order to defray the cost of processing the submissions. All works chosen for presentation will receive an artist fee. Only those artists being considered for presentation will be contacted.

Categories: Transmission Art/Radio Art, Electroacoustic Music/Sound Art, Interactive Installation Art, and Other.
