Subject: Call for works in Association with MANTIS
Date: Thu, 4 Dec 2014
In association with Sonic Arts Forum.
Metanast is an artists’ collective specialising in electroacoustic
composition, live electronics performance, and creative coding. The
collective supports links between academic and the wider sonic arts
culture through concerts which are friendly and inclusive for all
artists who wish to showcase their work irrespective of their
background. Metanast promotes collaboration, interdisciplinarity, and
experimentation with new and established technologies, and facilitates
discourse between academic researchers and independently practising artists.
Metanast is collaborating with the University of Manchester for the
upcoming *MANTIS Spring Festival*, 28 February – 1 March 2015, and we
are currently seeking works for our curated concert on *Sunday 1^st
March 2015*. Artists will have at their disposal the SAF octophonic
diffusion system, and a projector and screen for visual elements. Works
can either be in the form of live performances or fixed-media pieces,
with submissions welcome from both individuals and those collaborating
with artists from other disciplines.
Works based on redundant technology are of particular interest for this
event, including analogue sound generators, primitive microphone
techniques, photosensitive devices, etc.
Submissions should be forwarded to metanast [at] gmail [dot] com
with MANTIS2015 in the subject line, and must include contact details, a
brief project proposal, programme notes and an artist’s bio (100 words
each maximum) as word files, PDFs will not be accepted. Audio works must
be sent through wetransfer or dropbox, with multichannel pieces rendered
to stereo. Multichannel files will be requested later if your work has
been programmed. Submission of audiovisual works should be via a link
to Youtube or Vimeo.
The deadline for submission is *Friday 2nd of January 2015*. Travel
expenses for those travelling within the UK to the event to perform may
be negotiable. Any profits from the event will go to performers. For
further information contact manolimoriaty [at] gmail [dot] com
Please feel free to forward.
Apologies for cross postings.
