COMMISSIONS FOR SOUNDTOYS
Arts Council of England is funding a series of commissions.
1. We are looking for artists to make proposals for new interpretations of the artworks on soundtoys.net. All the work is held online in a database. We want artists to create innovative front end interfaces to connect to the rest of the site. No technology is excluded and all ideas will be considered. Things that might be suitable as suggestions could be a text searcher to link to the Soundtoys journal and bring up texts about Soundtoys, a 3D space to connect to the online artist’s works or you could make a selection of works you like and make an interface to control and access them. Technologies that you could use can be anything that will work on the web such as flash, shockwave, processing, java, html, etc. These interfaces can be as experimental and audio visual as you want. To apply, please send in a clear proposal that includes how you would make it, your technical expertise, and a budget. Some sketches, ideas, and links to other works you have made would also be helpful. We have a budget of £6000 about (12000 dollars) to make 4 - 6 commissions. Deadline 20 April.
SEND IN VIA EMAIL your proposal, ideas, sketched and technical expertise.
2. Soundtoys is also putting together a CDROM which will feature artworks from the past five years. We are looking for a proposal from someone who can make the interface for the CDROM for the artworks. We want an interesting audio visual interface to control and connect to the works on the CDROM. Anyone interested should send in sketches and a proposal, and examples of previous work. We have a budget of 1000 pounds or 2000 dollars to make the design and interface. Deadline 20th May
The Harvard University Studio for Electroacoustic Composition is proud to present its first INTERNATIONAL COMPOSITION COMPETITION FOR LIVE ELECTRONIC MUSIC.
An international jury will evaluate all works that arrive before the deadline (September 15th, 2005) and will select up to six works to be performed during the Fromm Players at Harvard Concerts, March 6 through March 12, 2006. The six finalists will participate in a week-long festival, work with the performers, attend workshops on all six pieces and participate in several pedagogical events along with the composition students at Harvard University and the jury members. The final concert will be on March 12th, at which time the jury will award one grand prize. The competition will cover flight and hotel expenses for the six finalists.
We invite submissions of new works (written after January 1, 2021) incorporating two to four live performers and live-electronics by composers born after January 1, 1965. The live performers should be drawn from the following list: soprano (voice), flute, clarinet, violin, violoncello, piano.
Although there is no strict limit to duration, pieces between ten and fifteen minutes are encouraged. The work submitted may have been performed in concert. However, it must not have been released in recorded form and must not have been awarded a prize before September 15, 2005. If a recording exists, it may be sent along with other materials, but recordings are not required.
This year, the live electronics focus is on the creative use of Max/MSP or PureData. The composition may make use of sixteen output channels and will be diffused during the concert on the Hydra Diffusion System (24 loudspeakers). A complete, functioning patch containing all necessary elements and an explanatory note for its use should be included in the application together with the score.
The workshop will be an open platform for the exchange of ideas between composers and performers, emphasizing the practical issues raised by performance of live-electronic music. The six selected compositions will be rehearsed as a part of this workshop. There will also be lectures given by the jury members.
Applicants are invited to submit one composition. There is no entry fee. Student works are highly encouraged.
Selected works will be announced by November 1, 2005. Composers whose works are selected for the final workshop and concert are required to attend the entire week of March 6 through March 12, 2006. Should a composer be unable to attend, their work will not be presented. Selected composers must send parts by January 3, 2021 and a photo (free of copyright). The decisions of the jury are final.
* Submissions must arrive before September 15, 2005.
* Include THREE COPIES of the score, the materials for the live-electronic part, and any further documents pertaining to the submitted piece.
* Include a completed entry form (available for download at http://huseac.fas.harvard.edu/).

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
Kirsten Lavers, Cris Cheek, (TNWK) and Simon Keep invite sound artists(including writers, poets, visual artists, musicians working with sound) to submit work for a short range FM and internet radio event in late May and early June 2005.
RADIO TAXI is a Taxi Gallery narrowcast and webcast initiative. Taxi Gallery is literally a black cab situated in a council estate on the outskirts of Cambridge, England. Since Sept 2001, over 25 different artists have made new works in response to the specific context offered by the gallery and its location. Taxi Gallery is a project
that reaches for an extended conversation with local, national and international audiences (via its website) in response to a broad range of challenging contemporary artworks, approaches and ideas. For more info on Taxi Gallery - please visit www.taxigallery.org.uk
The translocal or "glocal" philosophy of Taxi Gallery is reflected in the forthcoming RADIO TAXI project which will integrate a 3 mile radius analogue FM broadcast with a worldwide digital transmission via a server capable of handling multiple streams. RADIO TAXI will be a live(ly) mix of locally originated programmes and interventions
(significant community involvement by neighbourhood residents of all ages will be developed, including several major projects with Coleridge Secondary School and an evolving radio club), a curated programme of invited sound works and a schedule of sonic art from all over the world. The Radio Taxi webcast will be technically supported by Liam Wells (Norwich School of Art and Design) of n0media.
6pm 27 May - 6am 31 May (GMT)& 6pm 3 June - Midnight 5 June (selected highlights)
The selected highlights will remain archived on the Taxi Gallery website for the foreseeable future. An audio CD selection will also be included in a forthcoming full colour Taxi Gallery publication.
THERE ARE THREE WAYS TO TAKE PART IN RADIO TAXI:
1. A 1hour (unedited, raw) field sound recording made at night (any time between dusk and dawn) from a specific location anywhere in the world. Please include exact details of the location, date and time of the recording.
2. A recording made for the duration of a taxi journey (see Jan Cain's 'Ride' in the Taxi Gallery web archive). Please include details of the journey including departure and arrival destinations and reasons for the journey. These recordings will be played during the overnight programme during the broadcast period - a programme inspired by Jim Jarmusch's film 'Night On Earth'.
