This is a call for proposals for a sound artwork to act as an alternative audio tour/guide for the Tate. We want to install a new acoustic territory inside the Tate, to create a sound artwork that can occupy the Tate space yet exist within a much broader conceptual landscape.

The final artwork will be available online for visitors to download onto MP3 players in advance of their visit to the Tate. ‘Alternative Tate’ will be exhibited in late June 2011.

We welcome expressions of interest from artists working with sound: from Turner Prize winners, to guerilla mash-up DJs, from people writing radio plays, to sound engineers, from field recording specialists to musicians. Although we are framing this as an audio tour, we do not want to restrict the structure of the artwork to a linear, guided narrative ­ artists are free to interpret the frame of the tour as they see fit.

Liberate Tate has a history of challenging the corporate presence of large oil companies inside cultural institutions, a presence that we feel compromises culture and expression.

We can offer a fee of £1000 and a budget of £1000 to the sound artist/collectives selected, but no production facilities.

The deadline for submissions is April 11th 2011.

Sound Bridges, Sound Walls Annual Conference of the Studienkreis Rundfunk und Geschichte and the Vereniging Beeld en Geluid in co-operation with the Institute for Sound and Vision, Hilversum The area of sound studies has broadened greatly over the last decade, opening up new narratives in social, cultural and media history. In this symposium, we focus this renewed interest in sound specifically on the historical role of broadcasting, understood here as programme-oriented auditive or audiovisual distribution. In particular, papers have been accepted that help us to consider the role of broadcast sound in constructing and/or transgressing borders and boundaries. Location: Institute for Sound and Vision, Hilversum (map) Theaterzaal (zaal 1) Date: March, 18th and 19th, 2011

Workshoppen er en mulighed for at få erfaring med lydfortællingens teknikker. I løbet af dagen vil deltagerne i mindre grupper lave et kort lydindslag og arbejde med lydoptagelse, interview, speak og redigering. Formålet er at udvikle deltagernes evner til at designe og udvikle formidlingskoncepter i lyd. Både helt uerfarne og mere erfarne producenter er velkomne, men workshoppen forudsætter en vis forberedelse i form af tekstlæsning og konceptudvikling. Undervisere: Susanna Sommer og Jacob Kreutzfeldt. Tidspunkt: Onsdag d. 16. marts kl.10.00-16.00 Sted: Lokale 18.2.173, Københavns Universitet Amager, Karen Blixens Vej 1, 2300 Kbh S Tilmelding til Jacob Kreutzfeldt (jacobk@hum.ku.dk) snarest muligt. Der er deltagerbegrænsning.

LARM fyraftensRadio

4. marts 2011 | Posted by | Category: events larm-news

Mandag d. 14 marts kl. 16:00 inviterer LARM Radio til fyraftensRadio under overskriften CHAOS i arkivet Til dagens arrangement vil vi gå på opdagelse i lydarkiverne. Vi får besøg af DR’s arkivar Philip Trier. Han vil præsentere en radiofonisk lytteseance blandt lystige lydbølger, skræmmende stemmer, tabubelagt tale og fiffige folk. Altsammen fundet frem fra DR’s arkiver – og tilmed fra den prædigitale tidsalder. Herefter tager Jacob Kreutzfeldt os med på en rundtur i CHAOS den digitale infrastruktur i arkiverne. Vi slutter af med at høre de benspænd, I forhåbentlig vil bidrage med. Læs mere om den aktuelle radioudfordring nederst på siden. Baren vil være åben og efter oplægget er man mere end velkommen til at blive hængende til spørgsmål og snak. Sted: Roland Bar, bygning 21, lokale 21.0.15, Københavns Universitet Amager, Karen Blixens Vej 1, 2300 København S. En central del af LARM projektet handler om digitalisering af de gamle lydarkiver. I LARM findes der derfor to arkiver: Kopiarkivet er et analogt arkiv med kopier af udvalgte DR-produktioner fra perioden 1931 – 2003. Det befinder sig i en kælder på KUA, hvortil producenter kan få adgang efter aftale med LARM radio. CHAOS er et interface, der giver adgang til hundredetusinde timers digitaliserede radioudsendelser fra Statsbibliotekets mediesamling – primært fra perioden 1989 – 2005. CHAOS, der står for “Cultural Heritage Archive Open System”, vil i 2013 rumme mere end en million timers lyd. De mange timers radio, som allerede er digitaliseret, stammer fra en lang række danske radiostationer, herunder hele sendefladen for P1, P2 og P3 fra 1989 – 2005, lyd fra Københavns radio, SKY, 100FM, de regionale stationer og andre. LARM Radio er en netbaseret podcast radio, som inviterer alle interesserede til at lege med radioformater og lyd. Meld dig ind i Facebook gruppen LARM Audio Research Archive og modtag nyheder om LARM Radio og om resten af LARM. Benspænd nr. 2 LARM Radios udfordring til dig Du skal orientere dig på LARMs hjemmeside, og finde en person fra LARM som du synes lyder interessant. Dernæst skal lave et kort interview med vedkommende, om dennes projekt og rolle i LARM. Interviewet skal så klippes ned til et treminutters radioindslag. Stilmæssigt må du selv bestemme hvilket radioformat du vil bruge. Det kan f.eks. være dokumentar, reportage osv.. Men som en lille ekstra udfordring, skal du for så vidt muligt undgå speak, og udelukkende lade din interviewperson fortælle historien. For at blive oprettet som medproducent i LARM Radio kan du skrive til: sandrapetersen@larm-archive.org – kommentarer og spørgsmål modtages også!
