<nettime-ann> [ann] China Gates Partipation Call



Call for Participation
Mobile Music Performance
Zurich, Switzerland

The Digital Art Weeks 2006, organized by members of the Computer Science
Department of the ETH Zurich, is looking for up to twelve persons who are
interested in contemporary music and art who would be interested in participating
on a voluntary basis for the performance of a new Mobil-Music work under
the direction of Sound Artist, Art Clay using GPS and mobile computer technologies.

Aesthetically, the work China Gates for tuned gongs and Wrist Conductor is
rooted in works for open public space and belongs to a series of works, which
celebrate the use of innovative mobile technologies to explore public space
and audience.  The work is technically based on possibilities of synchronizing
a group of performers using the clock pulse emitted by satellites. The GPS
Wrist Conductor signals each player when to hit the gong. An intense rippling
effect is results as the players gradually move around the park and the music
of the gongs shift back and fourth from intense chords to exotic melodies.

Persons interested in participating are asked to apply by sending a message
to the below stated email address. Please include a short biography (50 words)
telling us about yourself and why you would you like to participate. Selected
players will receive a festival pass for all Digital Art Weeks 06 events.
