///May 27- 28, 2011

Submission deadline : March 1, 2011




2011 will mark the beginning of an annual juried audio art festival
hosted by AKA. Sounds Like… aims to bring together artists from across
the country and beyond to share their work and processes. The
festival’s title references both simile and charades, speaking to the
performative and interdisciplinary aspects of the work to be examined
here. Along those lines, the inaugural year of the festival will
examine various ways in which the movement and actions of a performer
relate to the auditory content.
Audio artists will be selected from this call for proposals to reflect
the diversity of approaches to creating live sound within contemporary
practices. Opportunities will be made for interested participants to
collaborate with other artists in the development of new works through
workshops and research in the week leading up to the performances to
be held May 27th and 28th.

To be considered for inclusion in the festival, please forward a
submission package containing the following: a cover letter, an artist
statement and proposal of no more than 300 words outlining how your
practice relates to the festival’s theme, an artist CV, a CD of 3-5
original works under 5 minutes in length, or a total playing time of
under 15 minutes, (please indicate if track is an excerpt) in mp3
format, a printed track listing including title and date. Note:
applicants are strongly encouraged to include a DVD with video
documentation (under five minutes) of previous performances if
available. A self-addressed stamped envelope with sufficient postage
must accompany any materials you wish to have returned.

The deadline for applications is March 1st.

AKA is committed to paying artist fees as outlined in the CARFAC
schedule and provision will be made for travel and accommodations.

Should you have any questions, please contact gallery director Tod
Emel at director.aka@sasktel.net

How does that sound?
