NAISA 2011 Call For Submissions on the theme FREEDOM
Categories: Radio & Transmission Art, Electroacoustic Music/Sound Art, Sound based media art, Installation Art
New Adventures in Sound Art (NAISA) invites artists of all ages and nationalities to submit works on the theme FREEDOM for consideration in New Adventures in Sound Art's 2012 programming in Toronto, Canada. Using the theme of FREEDOM for its 2012 programming, NAISA will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the birth of John Cage, an artist that challenged established artistic conventions in many fields. He also helped to broaden the already evolving language of sonic expression to include the existence of sound within the realm of art.
Preference in programming will be given to works that respond in some way to the theme of FREEDOM. Individual interpretations or variations on the theme are encouraged, but should be realized with sound as the primary component. NAISA would also like to encourage artists to submit works for live performance, gallery exhibit, screening, webcast or audio stream, radio broadcast, network or translocal performance, mobile experiences and any other emerging formats that include sound as a primary element.
Please complete in full the online submission form by midnight on September 30, 2011. If you are uploading your audio files instead of mailing them, try to have your files uploaded long before the deadline so as to avoid any technical difficulties. Note: Due to the number of submissions received in the past, NAISA is now requesting that you pay a $5 submission fee in order to defray the cost of processing your submissions.
New Adventures in Sound Art is a non-profit organization that presents performances and installations spanning the entire spectrum of sound art. NAISA is partially funded by the Department of Canadian Heritage, the Toronto Arts Council, Ontario Arts Council, Canada Council for the Arts and the SOCAN Foundation.

Sound Wave Festival ((5)) Summer 2012
San Francisco, CA. USA
The next season of Soundwave will explore our sonic connections to the human condition. For HUMANITIES, Soundwave seeks artists, composers and musicians to investigate our human experience, and examine the future of our human constructs, cultures and rituals through sound.
From Season 4's outward examination of the environment to Season 5's inward reflection of our own being and existence, the 2012 festival attempts to voice what makes us human in the backdrop of the MesoAmerican Long Count Calendar "Rebirth" and the ensuing mythologies and theories.
Soundwave seeks experience-driven performances that reinterpret the connections between sound and our human experience through its instrumentation, concept, visual collaboration, installation, audience interaction, or production by local and international sound and media artists, technologists, designers, musicians, and composers. Full details online.

ISEA2012 Albuquerque, New Mexico (USA)
Submissions have opened for ISEA2012 Albuquerque: Machine Wilderness, Re-envisioning Art, Technology and Nature. There are over 20 special projects artists can apply to and the list is growing!
ISEA2012 Albuquerque: Machine Wilderness is a symposium and series of events exploring the discourse of global proportions on the subject of art, technology and nature.
Proposals may include:
* Residencies/Site Projects
The ISEA2012 symposium will consist of a conference September 19 - 24, 2012 based in Albuquerque with outreach days along the state's "Cultural Corridor" in Santa Fe and Taos, and an expansive, regional collaboration throughout the fall of 2012, including art exhibitions, public events, performances and educational activities. This project will bring together a wealth of leading creative minds from around the globe, and engage the local community through in-depth partnerships.
Machine Wilderness references the New Mexico region as an area of rapid growth and technology alongside wide expanses of open land, and aims to present artists' and technologists' ideas for a more humane interaction between technology and wilderness in which "machines" can take many forms to support life on Earth. Machine Wilderness focuses on creative solutions for how technology and the natural world can sustainably co-exist.
The program will include: a bilingual focus, an indigenous thread, and a focus on land and skyscape. Because of our vast resource of land in New Mexico, proposals from artists are being sought that will take ISEA participants out into the landscape. The Albuquerque Balloon Museum offers a unique opportunity for artworks to extend into the sky as well.
The lead organizations hosting ISEA2012 are 516 ARTS, The University of New Mexico and The Albuquerque Museum of Art & History. There are a total over 50 partnering organizations to date representing museums, colleges, nonprofit arts organizations, environmental organizations and the scientific and technological communities.
