CALL FOR SHORT STEREOPHONIC SOUNDSCAPE & HOERSPIEL WORKS

 >A DIAMOND IN THE MUD<
A Miniature Audio Exhibition of Stereophonic Soundscape & Hörspiel Works

PROJECT CONCEPT:
It is an Asian concept rooted in Buddhism that self-cultivation can be  
developed at home as a householder and is not merely confined to a  
temple or monastery. Buddhist believe that enlightened beings are  
those who "grew" out of the "mud" of the material world. So, like the  
lotus flower, which penetrates through sullied mud and water, but  
emerges unspoiled, enlightened beings are beautiful and pure even  
though they grow up in the material world. The phrase "a diamond in  
the mud" is an analogy for this and in keeping with it the Digital Art  
Weeks would like to issue this call to artists and to submit pre  
recorded works (Soundscape, Hörspiel, Poetry) in regard to the  
beautiful and the sullied. The works will be chosen on their ability  
to transcend the listeners into a "moment of tranquilly" and out of  
the confines of the everyday, or as expressed in the Diamond Sutra:  
"Dwell upon nothing and produce the pure mind."

PLAYBACK SYSTEM:
Constructed as a dock for Apple's famed iPod, the iCarta stereophonic  
audio playback system will be used to play back all of the selected  
works. The systems not only offers an interesting solution for public  
pod-casting, but it also acts uniquely as a bathroom dispenser for the  
indispensable: Le papier toilette.

- Art Clay, DAW, Artistic Director (c) 2008


DEADLINE: Moday, 15th September 2008. Notification of acceptance of  
proposals will be sent out on or before Monday, 22nd September 2008.
