I-Park Accepting Applications for 2019 Music Composition/Sound Art Residencies

Application Deadline: February 28, 2019

I-Park is now accepting applications for its fully-funded four-week summer residencies. This multidisciplinary program is open to composers and sound artists looking to enrich their practice in a collegial, retreat-like setting—in the company of artists working in visual arts, creative writing, moving image and architecture/landscape design.

This residency is suitable for individuals focused on concert music (all genres), sound sculpture, architectural and theatrical sound design, media scoring and instrument design. While the typical residency revolves around studio work, those wishing to create mixed-media pieces or sound installations within I-Park’s natural and built environments are encouraged to do so.

Located within a 450-acre nature preserve in rural East Haddam, Connecticut (U.S.), I-Park provides residents with private living quarters in a renovated 1840s farmhouse, a private studio, meals program, fully-equipped workshop and modest library—as well as creative access to I-Park’s expansive grounds. Residencies are self-directed, undisturbed and non-judgmental. You decide what you’re working on and when.

Its music studios are equipped with pianos, digital keyboards/controllers, a collection of percussion and obscure instruments, and hardware for recording, sequencing and sound manipulation.

Details and application forms are available at i-park.org. Applications are due February 28, 2019, and carry a $35 fee to help defray the cost of the selection panels. This year, I-Park will also be offering $500 travel grants to six international residents. The call for applications for the autumn residency sessions will be announced in March and carry a deadline of April 30. For further information, contact info@i-park.org or 860-873-2468.

I-Park 2019 Site-Responsive Art Residency & Biennale
Application Deadline: February 28, 2019

I-Park, East Haddam, CT (U.S.), is pleased to announce that it will be hosting its seventh international, multi-disciplinary Site-Responsive Art Residency & Biennale.

The three-week residency will run from September 2-23, 2019 and will culminate in a public exhibition on September 22, 2019. The residency will be devoted exclusively to the 8-12 artists/designers invited to create new works for the exhibition. I-Park views site-responsive art as a multi-disciplinary, multi-sensory field – at its most impactful when the installations and performances are developed and experienced in-situ. The term “site-responsive” is construed broadly to encompass the various aspects of the project site: natural, built, social – and sensitive to the various dimensions of time.

Artists/designers working in the following creative disciplines are encouraged to apply: visual arts, music composition/sound art, language arts, architecture, moving image, landscape/garden/ecological design and performance art.

An artist’s stipend of $3,500 plus travel reimbursement will be paid to each artist or collaborating team. Application fee: $20 (U.S.). Project information and application materials: i-park.org. If you have questions, contact info@i-park.org, 860-873-2468.
