MuseRuole – Festival Call

MuseRuole – women in experimental music


Deadline 17th May 2013

MuseRuole is a festival dedicated to experimental music and puts contemporary female musicians and performers at its centre. It is a journey of discovery into the wide world of current musical research, looking for specifically female modes of expression, with its own grammar and personal style. This year (2013) we focus on the theme of radio as a space for musical research and a medium of technological innovation, including  notions of sending and receiving in equal measure.

Even today radio is an important method of communication: it remains one of the most powerful, cheapest, accessible and world spanning of media. Despite its long history and being one of the first mass media of the last century, radio has always been able to renew itself, adapting to changing realities and remaining in step with the future. And so radio is an instrument of disseminating knowledge as well as a research space for new technologies and formats: as a global platform it offers the possibility to develop innovative networks and ways to connect.

MuseRuole – Radio Edition invites female artists, composers and musicians to participate in the ‘virtual jukebox on the air”. To submit, please send us a short composition, fieldrecording or excerpt of a longer work (maximum length: 5 minutes). The selected works will become part of this year’s edition of MuseRuole and will be introduced at Museion – Passage (Museum of modern and contemporary art, Bozen – IT) on 5th June 2013.
