Call for Electornic Sound Works for Zeppelin 2009

We dedicate Zeppelin 2009 – Sounds of Power / Listening to Fear to thinking about issues that have been insidiously encircling us for some time. We are concerned about signs that might suggest we’re going backwards in terms of hard-won social and intellectual achievements and freedoms. . . .

We invite people interested in sound to think about these questions and send us their sound works. The pieces will be played through a system of eight loudspeakers on 10, 11 and 12 December 2009 at the Barcelona Centre for Contemporary Culture.


All works received will be accepted provided they meet the following conditions:

1. Pieces should be NO LONGER than ten (10) minutes.

2. The format for the pieces should be WAV or AIFF at 44.1 kHz and 16 bits. Pieces may have up to eight tracks. Each track should be in a separate file (so a piece with eight tracks should have eight files each containing a single track).

3. The following documentation should be included: 3.1. Comments on the piece. 3.2. An artistic biography of the author. 3.3. A document signed by the author either giving or refusing explicit authorisation for the piece to be posted on the internet. 3.4. A document signed by the author giving authorisation for the piece to form part of the Sonoscop sound art archive.

4. The pieces and documentation should be sent on a CD/DVD by 15 November 2009 to:

caos/ZEPPELIN/convocatòria Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona C/Montalegre, 5 Barcelona 08001 Spain
