Soundscapes Landscapes, City Above Life Below
A project of the artistic collective Medea Electronique at Onassis Cultural Centre
Deadline: August 01, 2016
Looking for: sound artists, video artists
Where: Athens Greece,
The project Soundscapes Landscapes, City Above Life Below is the second in a series of digitally mediated audio-visual walks. The first project in the series has been running for the past two years at the Onassis Cultural Center (more details at HERE). This second project will be based in a different area of Athens – KERAMIKOS – and explore new artistic and technical approaches.
Open Call Details
Medea Electronique wants to invite audio and visual artists to visit the city and create an audio-visual tour which employs a new form of artistic digital mapping. Guest artists are asked to create soundwalks, interviews, sound compositions, video art content and share it with Medea Electronique Collective in order to create a digital urban installation with artworks which draw on material from the digital mapping – the buildings, businesses and public spaces of Keramikos and the local streets – but also, behind and within all that, the people who live there, their history and their present. Starting at the Thisio, viewers armed with a special interactive digital map will be guided in real time around Keramikos a neighbourhood full of secrets, history and beauty.
The project has a small budget for each resident that could be used to cover some combination of transport, accommodation, fee etc. It is unlikely that it would cover all of these, depending on the specific case. Medea will work with accepted residents to find the most appropriate way to use the limited budget available in each individual case.
Duration: One week
Period: November 1st 2016 to November 10th 2016
Application Deadline: August 1st 2016
Working in fields including music, video, design, painting, multimedia, robotics, interactive technology and media production, we allow the integration of our distinctive areas of research and practice to define a unique style in the realisation of collective projects which range from multimedia theatrical plays to experimental audio-visual shows, and from improvised noise music through to field recordings and electroacoustic composition.
