Unique collaborative opportunity for composers, sound artists, and sound designers
Following our 2nd Spatial Audio Workshop in
January 2008, SpACE-Net is pleased to announce a unique collaborative
opportunity for composers, sound artists, and sound designers working
in the audio industry.
In partnership with leading audio company and soundcard designer Creative,
SpACE-Net would like to
commission a specific piece of sound design/sound artwork which has
spatial audio considerations at the core of its composition, design and
delivery process. The piece should have broad aesthetic appeal and
able to serve as an advertisement of the creative possibilities offered
spatial audio (i.e. it should sound good and be novel and exciting).
toolset incorporates a library for building interactive spatial audio
compositions into software applications. In evaluating the proposals
will be looking for creativity and novelty in the proposed use of this
combination of hardware and software to produce a high quality,
accessible piece of interactive spatial-audio-focused sound work.
To support this call for works the workshop event on the 23rd
January hosted ISACT tutorial sessions where the creative possibilities
by the software were demonstrated and discussed. Additionally
there were opportunities to find
potential collaborators for working on this project.
We are expecting proposals from teams or individuals who are
capable of handling both the creative and technical aspects of working
project of this nature. However, if a
proposal from an artist is significantly strong, but in our opinion
additional technical resources, we may consider making the award
subject to all
appropriate members of a team being in place.
We are also happy to help pair artists with engineers through the
existing facilities of SpACE-Net. Similarly,
if you are an engineer/programmer who would like to be involved in
proposal and working with an artist, please let us know and we will do
to pair engineers with appropriate artists.
We are particularly interested in receiving proposals from
those who attended the ISACT tutorials although this does not preclude
consideration of proposals from those who did not attend.
The deadline for is Monday March 31st. Note that the work
must be complete and ready
for demonstration by the end of June 2008.
Proposals should include the following:
Title of proposed work
Your contact details (Address/Telephone/Fax/Email/URL)
A brief biography (150 words)
Example(s) of previous work (CD/DVD/online) with a brief description of the aims of each piece submitted (max 100 words/piece)
A description of the proposal with reference to the points discussed above (500 words)
A project plan and timescale for successful completion and delivery of the work
