Call for audio works/posters/papers for SpACE_Net workshop - Deadline 30th November!

REMINDER : submission deadline : 30th November 2007

After the success of the first SpACE-Net International Spatial Audio Workshop in January 2007, we are delighted to announce our next major event, planned for Wednesday 23rd January 2008, again to be held at the Music Research Centre (MRC), University of York, York, UK. This time, the theme for the workshop is: 5.1 Surround-sound: Opportunity or Constraint? The previous call generated proposals for a wide variety of installations and compositions, using many different methods and implementations for manipulating and delivering spatial audio content. This year we want to see what artists can do with the ’standard‘ that is prevalent across much of the audio industry. Does 5.1 stimulate creativity or limit what can be effectively delivered?

With this in mind a call for spatial audio works is announced. The selected works will be performed at the January 2008 event and should be designed for delivery in the MRC’s Rymer Auditorium on the installed Genelec 1038 based 5.1 system. Details are available here:

Those works selected for commissioning will be announced by 19th December 2007; completed works must be ready for delivery at the SpACE-Net workshop on 23rd January 2008; commissioned artists will be expected to attend the event.

The maximum total budget to be awarded per selected commission, including fees, materials and consumables is £1000.
