BEAMS at The Works: call to performers

BEAMS (Boreal Electroacoustic Music Society) will be presenting a concert as part of this year's The Works International Art & Design Festival. The event takes place June 29 at a gallery venue to be determined.

We require sonic artworks that explore the concept of “Dialogue”, this year's Works Festival theme as described below:

"Dialogue is essential to understanding. Not all dialogue is expressed in words. Interaction changes the course of a project, and often more questions remain than answers. Dialogue is about opening the evolution of an artwork to outside and potentially differing influences before the process is declared complete."

Performance pieces should be less than 12 minutes in duration and somehow explore this theme. It is open to interpretation how the idea of “dialogue” can be explored in the context of sound art and experimental music. Improvisations, interactive works, solo or ensemble, exploring new audience performer paradigms, machine-human interactions, sound poetry...your imagination is the limit.

Submit a description of your performance (especially as it relates to the festival theme), number of performers, duration of piece and technical requirements to info@beams.ca by June 7, 2017. An artist fee will be paid for performed works.
