Artists Invited to Submit for SoundWalk 2013
2013-04-09 · By Editor
Artists who utilize, in any manner, sound in their work are invited to submit to the Tenth Annual SoundWalk event to be held in Long Beach CA on Saturday, October 5, 2013.
Now in its tenth and final year, SoundWalk, is an annual Long Beach art event produced by the artist group FLOOD. In a downtown area encompassing 4th Street and Linden Avenue, First Street and Elm Avenue, pure sonic art as well as works integrating any combination of the visual, conceptual and performative with the aural will activate, catalyze, inspire and surprise. Featured will be sculptures, environments, performances and installations. This year’s event will continue the exploration of the concept of connectivity (spatial, geographical, personal, disciplinary etc.)
Please visit http://submissions.soundwalk.org for submission requirements and details. Deadline for submissions is Monday, July 1st, 2013.
100 years ago this week (March 11, 1913), Luigi Russolo’s Futurist manifesto “The Art of Noises” was released. It was a letter that strove to open the sensorium to new ways of perceiving. It has been SoundWalk’s mission to promote such aspirations and, we hope, our success to have done so. However, in order to continue to find new ways of perceiving, we must transcend the aural and move into other modes. As a result, this will be SoundWalk’s last year. 2015 will be the launch year of a more expansive and daring event that will explore and respond to the synaesthetic experience in which cognitive boundaries dissolve and the senses converge.
