Call for Sound Installation
on the occasion of EMS14
The 2014 edition of the Electroacoustic Studies Network’s annual conference EMS14, taking place in Berlin, June 10 through 14, focuses on Electroacoustic Music Beyond Concert Performance. As an addition to this conference, we invite composers, sound artists and musicians to suggest a work that suits the following framework:
The piece will be presented in a room of 6 by 9 meters, located at the University of Arts, Einsteinufer 43-53, Berlin-Charlottenburg. It runs on one day during the conference continuously for five hours. No performers (musicians, dancers), no visual or sculptural elements including furniture, projection or special light setup shall be employed. Up to 12 speakers (any combination of Meyer UPL-1 and Fostex Personal Monitor 6301) and up to one subwoofer (d&b B1) are provided and may be used. The speakers are to be placed on their designated stands (Meyer: 120 to 200cm; Fostex: 85 to 155cm) or on the floor.
The artist needs to be at the venue in person. The artist is expected to set up within six hours of the day of the presentation and to take down the piece the same night. The artists shall bring their own playback or synthesis device. They may bring their own interface with analog outputs or use a RME Fireface UFX interface that is being provided. In addition, two technical assistants are available.
We offer an artist fee of 500 Euros (including taxes and all royalties) and expect the artist to leave a copy of all audio- or scripting data, as well as proper documentation and a recording (excerpt), for the archives of the Electronic Music Studio of Technical University with the understanding this material might be used for research and teaching purposes. We cannot fund any expenses like travel, production, etc. Selected artists will enjoy free access to the EMS14 conference. Up to three pieces will be presented.
Submissions shall be sent to ems2014.berlin[at]gmail.com by April 6, 2014, midnight CET. They shall include a proposal for a sound installation meeting the criteria and limitations outlined above of not more than two pages, an artist biography of not more than one page. Audio excerpts (stereo) of not more than eight minutes total shall be made available for download. Links to additional material will not be considered. Every artist may submit not more than one proposal. The submitting artist agrees to the above terms. Selected artists will be notified by April 15.
