*Current Calls for Submissions *

* 2010 Calls For Submissions on the theme ABOUT TIME
Categories: Radio Art, Electroacoustic Music/Sound Art, Videomusic and
Installation Art
September 30, 2010 Deadline*

2011 marks the 10th anniversary of NAISA's Deep Wireless and SOUNDplay
festivals and so it is an opportunity for NAISA to both reflect on the past
and look ahead to the future. With this in mind, New Adventures in Sound
Art invites artists of all ages and nationalities to submit works on the
theme *ABOUT TIME* for consideration in New Adventures in Sound Art's 2011
programming for its annual Deep Wireless, Sound Travels, and SOUNDplay
festivals presented in Toronto, Canada. Artists may submit works in one or
all of the following four categories (Note: please send separate submissions
for each entry).

Preference in programming will be given to works that respond in some way to
the theme *ABOUT TIME*. Individual interpretations or variations on the
theme are encouraged, but should be realized with sound as the primary

Artists may submit works in one or all of the following four categories
(Note: please fill out one on-line submission for each entry):

1) Radio Art
2) Electroacoustic Music & Sound Art
3) Videomusic
4) Installation Art

1) Radio Art (for Deep Wireless)

The Radio Art category is for works conceived for radio or that use radio
and other wireless technology in their creation and that play with the
medium. Special consideration will be given to 1 minute radio art pieces for
broadcast as well as 1 page proposals for collaboration on translocal and
network performances.

Pieces will be selected for broadcast within Canada and on several
international radio stations in May 2011 as part of the Deep Wireless
Festival of Radio and Transmission Art.

Both Canadian and International radio art submissions will be considered for
inclusion in the following:

-The Deep Wireless 8 radio art compilation CD
-The Radio Art Interventions (1 minute pieces played guerilla-style on radio
stations during the Deep Wireless festival)
-The Radio Art Salon - a listening gallery of radio art works exhibited for
the month of May.

2) Electroacoustic Music & Sound Art (for Sound Travels & SOUNDplay)

The Electroacoustic Music & Sound Art category is for multi-channel and
stereo works conceived for concert performance or presentation in the Sound
Travels Festival of Sound Art and SOUNDplay festivals. Preferred formats for
performance presentation include 5.1, octaphonic, 12 and 16-channel formats
in both acousmatic (tape), live, and mixed formats. Please indicate in the
notes the intended format of presentation and any required instrumentation
or specialized equipment.

3) Videomusic (for SOUNDplay)

The Videomusic category is for works that explores non-narrative abstraction
with equal emphasis on sound and image. Submitted works will be considered
for video screenings with either stereo or multi-channel playback for
screenings in either a performance venue or a small-size gallery alongside
other works selected from this call for submissions.

4) Installation Art (for Deep Wireless, Sound Travels or SOUNDplay)

Installation proposals of previously realized works for site-specific and
gallery installations will be considered for presentation as part of Deep
Wireless, Sound Travels or SOUNDplay. Site-specific works can be for indoor
or outdoor locations. Works can use multichannel or single channel playback
and may incorporate any number of media, but must feature original sound as
a primary element.

Preference will be given to small to medium scale interactive works that
appeal to all ages. Please note that almost all of NAISA's exhibition
locations are multi-use venues and often require works to be moved and
re-positioned on non-exhibition days. Also attach a list of the necessary
equipment required to mount the installation and which of these items can be
supplied by the artist. Submissions should include audio, video or
audio-video documentation of previously realized versions of the work.
