Feeling creative? Opportunity for a sound/video art installation in NYC. Details below.
Composers, sound artists, and other qualified individuals are invited to submit proposals for working residencies utilizing Diapason's multi-channel sound environment.
Diapason has two state-of-the-art multi channel sound systems (described below). Interested persons are invited to submit proposals for the use of the space to create a new work. Dates and times are flexible. Residents will receive a technical orientation, access to the space, and production assistance should they require it.
Description of the space:
Diapason consists of two rooms:
The “gallery” contains a powerful 8 channel sound system with a subwoofer and is designed for focused listening. The floor is carpeted and there are pillows available as well as some seating (cushioned benches, folding chairs).
The “lounge” contains a 12 channel sound system, as well as a 4 channel PA system. It is set up in an informal way, with benches, chairs, carpets, etc. ranged around the space.
The multi-channel sound systems are connected to MOTU 896 (gallery) and 828 (lounge) audio interfaces. Resident artists are expected to bring a laptop with the necessary drivers.
There are 2 sets of track lights in each room. The number and position of the individual lights can be adjusted.
For artists working with video, there are projection options.
It is possible to use the walls for displaying objects, but this must be approved by the gallery.
Submissions to participate are due by Friday, July 1, 2010.
