Subject: [BA-NEWMUS:8584] Arts Advocacy Day March 25-26/Arts Advocacy Toolkit from the Americans for the Arts website: The Arts Advocacy Day Conference will take place March 25-26, 2003 and will feature the 16th Annual Nancy Hanks Lecture on Arts and Public Policy and the national convening of Arts Advocacy Day 2003 on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. This past year, arts advocates succeeded in securing increased funding for both the National Endowments for the Arts and for the Humanities, as well as increased funding for arts education programs within the U.S. Department of Education. Arts Advocacy Day is strategically timed to give grassroots advocates the opportunity to shape federal arts policy and to educate Members of Congress. The 2002 elections and redistricting brought a new freshman class of House of Representative members who will need early educational visits from grassroots constituents about the importance of the arts and culture. Arts Advocacy Day is held in conjunction with the Congressional Arts Caucus and many Members of Congress will be involved in the day's events. Additionally, more than 60 national arts, humanities, educational, and civic organizations co-sponsor this event annually. For more information, call Americans for the Arts at 202.371.2830 or e-mail events@artsusa.org.

Subject: [BA-NEWMUS:8557] [Fwd: Engine 27 public call for sounds]


Public call for contributions towards the 50th Anniversary presentation of John Cage's Williams Mix Larry Austin's Williams [re]Mix[...stallation] to be presented at Engine 27, NYC in March 2003   Engine 27 and composer Larry Austin invite all composers, musicians and practitioners of electroacoustic and computer music, sonic art, New Music, New Media, and sound design to participate, via the web, in the Williams [re]Mix[...stallation]: a 50th Anniversary Celebration of John Cage's Williams Mix. Public call for sounds: city; country; electronic; manually produced; wind produced; small, which need to be amplified. Call ends midnight, March 16, 2003. Go to http://engine27.org/williamsmix.html to upload your sound files, for more information and for a brief history of Williams Mix. Saturday, March 22, 2003, marks the 50th anniversary of the premiere performance of John Cage's Williams Mix (1951-53) for eight monaural magnetic tapes, the first octophonic tape music composition in the world, created and performed with eight speakers surrounding the audience. To celebrate this historic piece and its first performance 50 years ago, Austin will create the Williams [re]Mix[...stallation], a continuously performing octophonic sound installation to be installed at Engine 27, implemented with Austin's recently developed Williams [re]Mix[er] (1997-2001), an interactive I Ching composing program. The program, in operation, creates ever-newer versions and realizations of Cage's original work, calling on a recorded sound library of hundreds of sounds. The program's functionality is modeled on the compositional processes used by Cage to create his Williams Mix, these processes extrapolated and applied from Austin's analyses of Cage's 192-page score, his sketches, and the eight monaural, analog tapes for the piece. Since first starting the project, Austin has continued to collect sounds for the recorded library of sounds (ranging from 20 to 120 seconds each) according to Cage's six sound categories of city (A), country (B), electronic (C), manually produced (D), wind produced (E), and small sounds (F).   From February 14 to March 16, 2003, everyone is invited to upload soundfiles, via the web for inclusion in the library to be used during the new multiple Williams [re]Mix[ed] realizations to be played during the installation.   Guidelines for contributing sounds
  1. Sounds should be contributed as stereo, 44.1K, 16bit, aiff or wave format soundfiles.
  2. Sounds should be from 20 to 120 seconds in duration.
  3. Each soundfile sent should be labeled by the contributor and placed in the correct folder or directory according to Cage's categories of city (A), country (B), electronic (C), manually produced (D), wind produced (E), and/or small sounds, which need to be ampified (F) and include the author's name or 'tag' and a number signifying how many files you've contributed to the category. The contributor decides which category the sound(s) belong(s) in.

AETHER FEST #1: Festival of International Radio Art

June 1-29, 2003 at KUNM fm ^?Albuquerque, New Mexico USA Presented by KUNM, Nonsequitur, and Harwood Arts Center Artists and producers of all ages, nationalities and disciplines are invited to submit recorded works of experimental radio art (and visual art on the theme of radio) for possible inclusion in this juried broadcast festival/gallery exhibit. We seek work that challenges what radio is and does and explores what it might be and could do. ^?adio Art^?is here defined as a work made specifically for radio broadcast, with the intention of expanding the creative and aesthetic possibilities of the medium. Such works may or may not employ elements of other established genres such as radio theater, spoken word, performance art, h?iel, text-sound or sound poetry, electroacoustic music, soundscapes, documentary, talk show, etc. They might be ^?bout^?radio, subverting or exploiting the conventions and expectations of the medium; or, they might make use of the radio apparatus itself as instrument or content. Aether Fest will be broadcast on radio station KUNM 89.9 FM, located at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA (also webcast at http://www.kunm.org). Primary broadcast hours will be each Sunday night from 8:30 -11:30 during the month of June, 2003, with the possibility of adding other hours throughout the month. There will also be a concurrent exhibit of visual art related to the theme of radio (broadcasting, transmission, aether, communication, airwaves, disembodied voices, etc.) held throughout the month of June at the Harwood Art Center in Albuquerque; this will be juried by the HAC^? Visual Arts Committee. Artists may submit both audio and visual work, and are encouraged to do so if they work in both media.
Awards
Cash awards of $300 US will be given to each of three outstanding audio works selected by the jury.
Submission Guidelines
^?There are three general categories for submissions:
  1. recent work (made since 1998)
  2. older work (made before 1998)
  3. shorts (complete, unedited pieces of 5 minutes or less)
We are most interested in recent work, but will of course consider works created at any time (recorded works which have been released commercially are ok, too). ^?You may submit as many different works for consideration as you wish. Please specify if each work has been previously broadcast, or if this would be a premier. ^?The content of all works submitted must be completely original; straight adaptations of published texts or works which use previously released recordings of music or sound by other artists as a ^?oundtrack^?will not be accepted. (allowances will be made for creative use of sampling; if you have questions about this, contact us) ^?We prefer individual works that are 25 minutes or less, but longer works will be considered. (for long pieces, we suggest that you also include an edited version as an alternate choice) ^?CD, CD-R or DAT is preferred, but cassettes will also be accepted if the artist does not have access to digital recording media. ^?Send 3 copies of each work submitted (you may include more than one work per CD/tape; please use index points on CD or DAT, or clear silences separating pieces on cassette) ^?Please include biographical information, credits for all participants, and anything else you want us to know about the work (3 copies). It is a good idea to mention what qualifies the work as ^?adio art^?if that is not obvious. ^?For works in which text plays a major role, at least half of the text should be in English (we are flexible about this); however, works in other languages will be considered, especially if an understanding of the text is not crucial to the appreciation of the piece. Works without any spoken text are also acceptable. ^?Volunteers and Staff of KUNM may submit work to be considered for broadcast, but are not elligible to receive cash awards. ^?Sorry, we can not return your submitted materials. All recordings etc. received will be archived at KUNM and Nonsequitur.
SUBMISSION GUIDELINES FOR VISUAL WORKS
^?We are seeking artwork (realist, abstract, conceptual, etc.) which somehow addresses the theme of radio. ^?Artists who are submitting audio work may also submit visual work. ^?You may submit as many different works for consideration as you wish. ^?Works may be two- or three-dimensional, in any media (sorry, no video). We will consider proposals for small-scale installations, but keep in mind that gallery space is limited. There is also a large space for sculpture outside, between the building and the street. ^?In the case of conceptual works which may or may not yet have been created, please send a clear written description of what you intend to do. If you have slides or photos of other relevant work, please include them. ^?Do not send original artwork! If your work is selected, we will contact you about shipping it. ^?Send clearly labeled slides or prints for each work you would like to submit for consideration. Include a separate sheet of paper with title, dimensions, materials, and year made for each work. Also include biographical information and a brief statement about the work. ^?If you wish to have your slides etc. returned, you must include a self-addressed stamped envelope. MATERIALS SUBMITTED WITHOUT SASE WILL NOT BE RETURNED! ^?There is no entry fee for this exhibit, however artists who are chosen to participate must pay for the cost of shipping their work to the gallery. The festival will pay for return shipping. ^?IMPORTANT NOTE: While the Harwood Art Center does not carry insurance for artwork, they do provide 24 hour video recording surveillance for the galleries as well as security patrols during off hours. Artists whose work is chosen will be asked to sign a release stating that the Harwood Art Center, Nonsequitur, and KUNM will not be held financially responsible for any damage or theft that may occur, either on the premises or in transit.

All audio and visual submissions must be received NO LATER THAN APRIL1, 2003.

Another call for scores

(this one might have an Esperanto angle)

Greetings from Singapore! ICMC2003 will take place in this Lion City from September 29 to October 4, 2003. The deadline for music and paper submissions is March 1, 2003.

While in the last century we had experienced the benefits of the narrowing of gaps in worldwide communication and the bringing together of world cultures, one of the unexpected results of the process was the creation of barriers. For some, the rapidly changing landscape presented too fast a change in well-established traditions and cultures, and they who live in these societies set up boundaries to stem the erosion of their way of life. Though there are valid reasons to believe so, it need not be the case, especially in music.

This year's conference theme, Boundaryless Music, celebrates music without barriers of cultures or genres, without the prejudices of the traditional or the contemporary perspective, without discrimination against the old or the young. We cannot totally remove all barriers, but we can make them more permeable to the flow of information, ideas, resources and energy. Celebrate an open and sharing environment, experiment with new processes and technologies, and cultivate new approaches to learning and teaching; all of which involve interconnected processes instead of isolated ideals. Boundaryless Music invites all to celebrate a common vision and an encompassing human spirit in music making.

Call for Music

ICMC 2003 invites music submissions of digital audio, interactive, multimedia and installation works for presentation in Singapore. Works related to the conference theme of Boundaryless Music are particularly encouraged, which might include multi-cultural interfaces, performance interfaces, spatial strategies or aesthetic approaches.

Performance forces include a piano/violin duo, chorus (SATB), and percussion ensemble as well as Chinese, Indian, and Gamelan ensembles.

Visit http://www.nus.edu.sg/cfa/UCC/index.html for more on the performance halls. The spaces available include the Theatre for afternoon concerts and the Hall for evening concerts. Installation works may reside in the foyers (2nd and 3rd floors).

Submission Formats Accepted

For Audio: CD, DVD, ADAT, DAT
Electronic submission of digital audio files (44.1 KHz 16bit format; aiff or wav) will be available. Please visit www.icmc2003.org after January 26, 2003 for submission procedure.

For Audio/Video: VHS, SVHS, DVD

If the work is for instruments and digital audio, please include a score of the instrumental part, a recording of the electronics, and/or, a recording of a performance. For works involving live electronics, you may include documentation such as a software patch or description.
