24London: Opportunity for London Based Artists
Visit London are creating a unique exhibition of London which will tour to 3 European cities called 24London, a 24 hour exhibition in each city showcasing 24 London artist's views of London through a variety of mediums.
As one of the most loved, most vibrant, most diverse cities in the world London has a lot to offer and we feel there is certainly enough art out there to showcase just how much of an incredible place it is.
Therefore we are looking for 24 artists who are interested in exhibiting their work all over Europe in a highly PR driven campaign to promote this great metropolitan city.
We are looking for London based artists whose work showcases London in a positive manor to promote the city as a great world class destination. Since the exhibition will begin in early November we are not looking for artists to commission work but simply lend an existing item of their work, which is related to London, to the exhibition. We are looking for work in all mediums and encourage artists to be creative with the London theme.
Please note that there will be no fee for the chosen artist/s but we will cover the cost of all aspects of the exhibition.
If you are interested in this opportunity and your work is clearly reflective/representative of London in a positive light please email us with some brief information about yourself and 1 or 2 examples of the work you wish to submit.

Lookoutpost is once again calling for artists of any discipline to exhibit within the unique setting of Sydenham Hill Woods, South East London.
To celebrate the 25th birthday of the amalgamation of the woods with the London Wildlife Trust, this year's exhibition Upstaging Nature considers the consequences of placing art work in an environment which has a tendency to dominate everything around it. Work which seems prominent in a gallery or studio space has been overwhelmed or lost in the grandeur and innate beauty of the woods.
In light of this, proposals are requested for alternative ways of producing/presenting work that might upstage nature. Artists need not to read this
title too literally. There are many ways of upstaging, and a variety of senses and subtleties can be brought into play in negotiating the challenge of the woods. Performance and live artists are particularly welcome. All the woods a stage.
The exhibition will run over the course of a weekend, mid August 2007. There will be an artist's fee of £175 plus transport and material costs, subject to funding. Applicants should remember that the show will take place outside, therefore work should be durable, vandal proof and sensitive to the environment.
To apply, please send a current CV and no more than six supporting images along with a proposal briefly outlining the following:
A description of the work you plan to make and it's relevance to Upstaging Nature. An approximation of how long the piece will take to make/install/perform. A rough budget breakdown, including transport costs and any technical equipment needed. Artists are encouraged to keep technical requirements to a minimum due to the external setting of the show.
Any requests concerning location within the woods (near a tree, in a clearing, next to a pond?)
For the purpose of funding applications, 50-100 words on how this project is relevant to you and might further your practice.
Please send proposals to

One Minute Soapbox - Call for Sound Works for Radio Program 'For Love and Money'
A new two-part show to be broadcast on Resonance FM from the Frieze Art Fair
on Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 October 2020 from 1-2pm.
For Love and Money takes a look at the art economy through the eyes and experiences of artists and curators, far removed from the glitz of one of the world's most profitable art fairs. Supporting and enriching the art
world as the creators of the objects exhibited, traded and profited from,
the average artist in London remains below the minimum wage threshold while last year's event had a turnover of £33 million from the business of around 150 galleries.
'For Love and Money' invites artists and cultural workers at the thin end of
the financial wedge to respond and react to the fair, moving the agenda away from profit towards a greater sympathy concerning the place of art in
We are inviting responses to the following open slot:
One Minute Soapbox
Got something interesting to say about art and money? Perhaps a useful way to get good freebies? Or a definition of in-kind support, tips for artistic
money saving hints or an idea for a new economic model?
You are invited to make a contribution to our One Minute Soapbox open slot to be broadcast during the For Love and Money programme, from the Frieze Art Fair on 14 and 15 October from 1-2pm. Only two rules: no swearing and no repetition. You might speak, rap, sing, mix, or collect sound. Anything goes as long as your point is clear.
Email your audio file for selection in MP3 format via http://www.yousendit.com/ along with your name, email and one-line description of the work for an introduction.
For Love and Money is produced by Joanna Callaghan and Russell Martin, who are curating creative responses springing from some of the issues raised in the six-part radio conversation, Show me the Monet
(http://www.showmethemonet.org.uk), broadcast in July and August 2006.

Trampoline Nottingham Platform for New Media Art: Urban Play
Deadline: 23rd October
Event to be held on 23rd November
The Theme - Urban Play: The city is paved with pixels, the flow of traffic becomes the flow of bits, the flow of people, the flow of electrons. Streets and circuit diagrams become meshed. The race has begun.
Each one of us becomes a player in the game of the city, furiously manipulating the control pad, tapping buttons, flicking switches. Leaping from platforms, scaling the walls the concrete/media playground is before us.
Hurtling around corners, lunging up surfaces, shooting through the streets.
Join the rush and surge of the city, find new ways to play the game.
Trampoline invites you to participate in 'Urban Play' a one day event held on 23rd November in Nottingham, UK. Its objective is to merge video gaming, art and design with the investigation of the city space. The structures of the city are increasingly pervaded by new media with screens, cctv, electronic networks, mobile devices, implements often designed to control our movement through urban space and even to remove us from our surroundings. We wish to investigate how new media
can form an even tighter relationship with our immediate environment - challenge and subvert its conventional structures, hacking the city.
What we are looking for:
We are searching for work which explores urban space and methods of play, in particular projects which combine these areas in examining and utilising new media elements of the city, We invite you to submit proposals of urban games, creative computer games, video, interactive installation, audio guides, sound, music and performance exploring play, gaming, new media and the city.
We especially encourage the submission of participatory works which promote a high degree of audience involvement. This includes informal exploratory workshops as well as completed projects.
Key points to focus the proposal on are:
a.. The relation between the work and the city
b.. The element of play and
c .. Its encouragement of audience participation
How to Submit work:
Please fill in the Submission Form, downloadable from
Submissions should include:
Description of work
Please note for those submitting video works:
We would request that you send the full version of your video works in PAL AVI data format if possible

Call for Proposals Electroacoustic Music Studies Network (EMS)
International Conference Series - 4th Conference 'EMS07' June 12-15 2007, De Montfort University, Leicester, UK
"The EMS Network has been organised to fill an important gap in terms of electroacoustic music, namely focusing on the better understanding of the
various manifestations of electroacoustic music. Areas related to the study
of electroacoustic music range from the musicological to more interdisciplinary approaches, from studies concerning the impact of technology on musical creativity to the investigation of the ubiquitous nature of electroacoustic sounds today. The choice of the word, 'network' is of fundamental importance as one of our goals is to make relevant
initiatives more widely available." (www.ems-network.org)

Sound in the Era of Mechanical Reproduction
November 2-3, 2007
Hagley Library, Wilmington, Delaware
For the conference, Sound in the Era of Mechanical Reproduction,
the Centre for the History of Business, Technology and Society
invites proposals for empirically based historical papers that
analyse sound in commercial, technological and legal environments
since the late 19th century. The conference will take place November
2-3, 2007 at the Hagley Library in Wilmington, Delaware. Our
principal interest is in papers that explore the integration of sound
with the commercial practices of music, radio, film and television,
and the commercial engineering of sound in social environments such
as shopping and the workplace. Proposals can consider the legal and
cultural implications of innovations in technology and business
practices, such as the impact on the political economy of sound and
notions of sound and sound-based products as property. We also
encourage papers that explore sources of innovation in sound and
music (especially from communities and/or business enterprises
defined by ethnicity, race, or region), as well as those focusing on
the transnational circulation of sound-related technologies and
Proposals should be no more than 500 words and accompanied by a short
cv. Deadline for submissions is March 31, 2007. The program committee

LMJ 17: My Favourite Things: The Joy of the Gizmo
If, as Marshall McLuhan so famously suggested, the medium is the message, then the gizmo must be the one-liner. From baroque violinists to laptoppers, sound artists have long fetishised the tools of their trade, the mere naming of which can provoke an instant reaction: Shout "LA-2A," "TR-808," "JTM45" or "Tube Screamer" in a room full of musicians, and you will notice the eyes brighten, the breath shorten and the anecdotes pour forth. But only to a point: Many a "secret weapon" is held close to the chest.
This is the chance to get that secret off your chest: LMJ 17 will address the significance of physical objects in music and sound art in a time of increasing emphasis on software and file exchange. We are soliciting papers (2,000--5,000 words) and briefer artist's statements (500-1,000 words) on the role of purchased or homemade instruments, effect boxes, pieces of studio gear, "bent" toys, self-built circuits, and so on, in your work as a composer, performer, artist, producer, recording engineer, etc. Wherever possible, please include photographs of your subjects (300 ppi TIFFs preferred).
Please submit a brief proposal by 23 October 2020 to Nicolas Collins at <email@example.com>. Final texts and all materials (text, image, sound file) must be received by 2 January 2007. Contact Nicolas Collins with any questions.
