soundpedro, an annual event produced by the Long Beach artist group FLOOD. Angels Gate Cultural Center June 2, 2018
Ear-oriented art will be placed throughout the area, indoors, and outdoors. While works should address sound and aural perception, the option of aurality/hearing in combination with other senses is preferred. Projects, some interactive and some self-contained, will include sculptures, environments, installations, timed and ongoing performances, interactions, and presentations. The variety of works make for a memorable event.
Please understand, this not a music event. Work characterized solely by elements of pitch, melody, rhythm, tempo or meter cannot be considered. We encourage participation that explores or incorporates acoustics, psychoacoustics, electronics, audio technologies, listening actions, performance actions, spatialization, conceptualization, timbralization, found sound, or environmental sound. Work may examine the interface in which experimental music and sound art connect.
In your submissions package, include:
A clear picture of your face (akin to a passport or driver's license photo).
Up to 3 examples of previous work. You can use more than one media file to show each work, but title them all with the same title of the work they represent.
In the description field of the media files, describe the work, the site requirements (solo or shared, indoor or outdoor, volume level, power requirements), and indicate if it’s available for this event. If you run out of space to write all this, you can include it in the submission letter.
Please take care that submitted images, audio, and/or videos are excellent quality as they may be used in promotional materials, catalog, and audio CD.
In the submission title, put your name.
In the submission letter, include: An artist statement (1000-1500 characters). Your resume (1000-3000 characters). Up to two (2) proposals for new work. (soundpedro will not furnish any equipment [e.g. power strips, generators, cables etc.], but will provide site(s) and power only.)
