<nettime-ann> [ann] STEREOPHONIC SOUNDSCAPE Call


Call for Works

The Digital Art Weeks of ETH Zurich and the Stereolith Speaker System Company,
Switzerland, would like to invite audio artists to submit soundscape works.
Each work must be in stereo and not more than 10 minutes in length. The works
will be chosen on their ability to "evoke" the presence of things or beings
in space and to the extent in which the work "immerses" the listener into
a completely imaginary sonic environment.

Stereolith is an innovative reproduction system for the re-creation of recordings
made to playback in stereo. Unlike traditional loudspeaker configurations,
the Stereolith is a single construction in which both the "left" and the
"right" channels have been incorporated. In this way, the system can be installed
at any point within the listening space and allows the listener to experience
a true stereo effect of each work from any point within the space as if it
was a live event.

Please submit all works in .aiff format on a CD. Please include the title
of the work, a short description of it no more than 100 words)and a short
biography of the author of the work (no more than 50 words). Selected works
will be presented on the Stereolith Systems over a period of 4 days from
the 12th to the 15th of July 2006 in the VisDome of ETH Zurich in conjunction
with the exhibition Zeitschnitt which will include projected works from various
artists throughout Europe. Information about each audio artist, soundscape
work and the time it can be heard will be announced in the events program.

Deadline:  Friday, 14th April 2006.
Notification of acceptance of proposals will be sent out on or before Friday,
5th May 2006.
