Open Call for Sound Works
WILD INFORMATION NETWORK: The Department of Ecology, Art, and Technology–Open Call for Sound Works In Mp3 Format – Deadline April 1, 2006.
If we encountered a pod-cast, or a streaming radio server in the woods, in the ‘natural’ environment, what kind of information would be distributed? If there was an entity, a life-form, or a ‘natural’ other that disseminated sonic information, wild-information, how would this information sound? This project encourages artists to create audio sound works that imagine the ‘voice’ of the ecological other and explore its translation into the language of digital art technologies.
If ï¿½natureï¿½ encountered a pod-cast, or a streaming radio server in the woods, in the ï¿½naturalï¿½ environment, what kind of information would be distributed? This project could take on unpredictable, interactive, and experimental dimensions as it also encourages artists to consider themselves as human animals, beings within ï¿½natureï¿½ producing sound works for unknowable others, e.g. ferns, salamanders, flowers, mosquito, beetles, flowers, deer, coyotes, bear, water, etc.
