INTERNATIONAL OPEN CALL FOR EXPERIMENTATION AND SOUND CREATION
La Tostadora – Proyectos Sonoro-visuales
The independent project “La Tostadora, Proyectos sonoro-visuales” invites all creators and colectives of any nationality to participate in its fifth international open call, titled “MEDIA-AURIS”, which asks for pieces made from diverse practices involving sound as matter for creation: noise, radio art, soundscapes, circuit bending, electro-acoustic experimentation, coding, electronics and so on. The curatorial guidelines will approach to the concept of lightness as a phenomenon that materializes in aesthetic-artistic practices. We look for sound pieces that dialogue with this concept from its creative characteristics, where the fugacious, ephemeral, fluctuating, day-to-day, movement, floating and similar approaches of the lightness as reflection in the sound creation are latent, with experimentation with sound, use of artisanal, analogue and digital technologies, noise as an aesthetic possibility, listening as an active exercise, free improvisation and the diverse possibilities of sound creation today as starting point.
Selected pieces will be exhibited as part of activities programmed in the Art House Madrid museum circuit: ("The Neomudejar" museum, Zapadores Museum, "The city of art") located in Madrid, Spain. During July of the present year (2019), as well as a serie of exhibitions that will itinerate in the country (Colombia) during the yeart.
