CALL FOR SONIC SUBMISSIONS
*** While DIAGRAM continues to read regular submissions, we are looking for sonic work for an upcoming issue.
In the fall of 2003, DIAGRAM will publish a special edition devoted to the intersection of text and sound. This is a call for artists/musicians/writers working in sound to submit sound art for consideration.
Submissions may include spoken word, field recordings, abstraction, electronic or acoustic music, [insert any other shorthand description of sound exploration you please], or any combination thereof, so long as it addresses in some way, our interests: In oddness. In representations, naming, indicating, schematics, signs, indices, and obituaries. In the labeling and taxonomy of things. In sound work that engages in dialog; takes language or poetry or narrative as its subject, object, or referent, master or servant; addresses the language at the morpheme, phoneme, handsign, lips and tongue-level.
The usual DIAGRAM criteria also apply.
WE WANT sound pieces that engage the mechanics of meaning/poetry; the processes / of things, both inner and outer; of sound-image, confused, manipulated and otherwise; pieces that demonstrate rather then explain; point and uncover rather than demolish; how things become. How they expire. How they move or churn, or stand. Send us sound analogous to annotations, schematics, poems, sentence diagrams, definitions. Translate into/from sound.
Submissions must be received by Sep 1, 2003.
Please limit pieces to 3-4 minutes in length. Audio vignettes and cameos.
We prefer electronic submissions but will
accept data files on CD-Rs, too (.wav, .aif, or high resolution stereo
mp3s). Send zipped high resolution stereo mp3 files to <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
