Call for submissions: Temporal Contours live audio performances

  • Call for submissions
  • Winnipeg, MB

Website Video Pool Media Arts Centre

Temporal Contours, hosted by Video Pool Media Arts Centre, is a series of live audio performances by artists working in a variety of thoughtful approaches to sonic presentation. We aim to provide room for experimentation that re-considers or blurs the boundaries of what music is, strives for a unique sound, values the exploration of chance, embraces the possibility of failure or generally challenges the listener to maintain an open ear.

With this in mind, we are seeking expressions of interest from artists who are developing or re-defining their own practice in the audio arts. Regardless of your level of experience, we would love to hear about the projects you are developing: improvisation, electro-acoustic, noise, bodily-performance with sonic components, ambient/drone, accousmatic, jazz, synth, etc, however you define it, we want to hear it!

Application Requirements

  • All applications must be electronic, or paperless.
  • Artist bio (1 paragraph max)
  • Project Description (1-page max): please tell us how you are experimenting or pushing the limits of your practice.
  • Links or uploads of previous OR current work-in-progress (3 max). If there are specific areas of a track you would like us to hear please note their times.
