Call for musicians and performers
Call for musicians and performers to submit materials and proposals for a performance at the launch night of MusicBrut, a new record label developing a roster of outsider and visionary musicians. The label is looking for musicians, artists and performers working on the margins of musical culture and genres to perform at a London venue in May 2006. We are actively seeking work outside the areas of avant-garde and improvisatory music, searching for expression and beauty beyond traditional, experimental forms.
Many of those we seek to engage with may not have access to this information. Please recommend performers who may be working in this unclassifiable and unpredictable area and feel free to forward this email to individuals and organisations who might have an interest or input into this venture. There will be limited funds available to assist with travel and expenses but not accommodation for the event.
Please reply to : Mark Webber at MWnoise@aol.com

BENT 2006 CIRCUIT BENDING FESTIVAL OPEN CALL
The Tank is currently accepting proposals for:
Bent 2006 : The Third Annual Circuit Bending Festival
April 19-23, 2006
Proposal Deadline: February 10, 2021
Each year the festival features daily workshops, art installations, and evening concerts from a wide variety of international performers and artists. This year we are working in collaboration with Harvestworks as part of their ‘Benders and Coders’ series to co-produce the festival.
We are looking for proposals for the following:
Workshop Leaders: each year we offer general circuit bending workshops for beginners and more advanced workshops on specialty topics for more seasoned circuit benders. If you feel you have a subject you would like to lead a workshop on, please provide us with a one-page description of that workshop, as well as links or examples of your current and past work in the field.
Installation Artists: We are looking for up to three artists who can commit to spending at least 15 hours in our gallery space over the course of the festival creating site-specific pieces of art that somehow incorporate circuit bending. We will provide space and as much materials and electronic equipment and tools as we are able. Please send a one-page proposal of what you would like to do and examples of your past work. Also, please be able to commit to spending time in the gallery during the festival and be prepared for a shared and at times hectic work environment - no white walls here.
Artwork: in addition to installation artists we are also interested in having artwork up on the walls that fit into the spirit of the festival from people who might not be able to join us in person or who can’t commit to working in the space during the festival. Artists are responsible for shipping/transportation costs, and should include special instructions for mounting and maintenance. Please submit digital images of your work and a brief description.
Performers: we will be having 4 nights of performances during the festival. Please submit a brief description of your work, an mp3 or link to audio online, and any visual documentation of your performance.
Those of you who have attended in previous years know that we are a homebrew, volunteer run organization fighting to maintain a foothold of experimental arts in new york city. Last year we were able to provide $20 stipends to performers and a few travel grants. This year we hope to be able to offer much larger stipends and more travel grants, but we will not know until late February when we hear back from our granting organisation. Please keep this in mind when applying.

CALL for WORKS: RADIO REVOLTEN 2006
Consider radio! It's all there: the greatest hits of classical music, the tops of the pops, news every 20 minutes, the church's most uplifting sounds, the edification of cultural radio, interactive call-in stations, pleasant dilettantism on public channels, sugar sweet ad spots, cozy talk radio, unmanageable play lists, non-commercial local radio from actively
engaged people, the free radio of converted pirates, public radio from society's upper crust, and more. It's freedom, format, experiment, balance, market, culture, target groups, messages, and sometimes a hint of subversion - democratic pluralism in full bloom! Could there be anything left to be desired of radio?
WE WANT MORE!
