Association of Multimedia Artists AUROPOLIS and NOFM 2 [ARTSYNC] web radio invite performers from the fields of electro-acoustics, experimental electronics, voice experiment, sound art, improve, sound objects and field recording to participate in international artistic experiment.
Imaginary Orchestra is a metaphor for the outcome of the project’s concept, gathering sound material from all parts of the world through hyper space pool – whether materials are recorded for this purpose or are excerpts from home sessions, previously recorded or released sounds or live performing archive – with the aim to publish one or more digital releases per year composed and produced by sound artist in residence chosen to research the gathered archive and create unique works.
The core concept of IO is to overcome all physical barriers and funding obstacles that are disabling mobility of culture and disheartening collaborations with artists out of reach, weather it is a question of geographical distance or difference in the career phase [established – non established equally treated within the same project].
The IO project is set to become a permanent self-organized platform for investigating new paradigm of audible communications and artistic collaborations through the web.
Send your contributions, works or raw materials to firstname.lastname@example.org [for files under 20MB only!] or request invitation for IO SugarSync or DropBox folders. Please indicate in the mail subject – For IO, tag your files the way you want them to be signed, send link or basic info about your activities.
