BEAMS Presents Art’s birthday 2019


Call for sound art, electroacoustic, experimental music performances, and digital visual art pieces.

It’s that time again Beamers! Art’s birthday is just around the corner. BEAMS (Boreal Electroacoustic Music Society) is looking for artists, both local and abroad, to take part in Edmonton’s celebration of Art! We will be celebrating on Saturday, January 19th, 2019 from 8pm until midnight at the Ortona Armoury. We are looking for artists to perform this night, along with digital artists to contribute to the projections that will be creatively mixed together over the course of the night. This year’s theme for Art’s Birthday is Diversity.

We are looking for individual or group performances that will be 15 minutes long, and digital art that is either in jpeg or mov format. Still visual artworks or movie clips should be no more than 1 minute long.

Another exciting dynamic for this year’s Art’s birthday (submissions depending) is that we would like to see if we can raise money for local artists and BEAMS by having an art sale! We are looking for artists who would like to hang works on the walls of the venue for the community to see and hopefully purchase. BEAMS would get a $5 donation for each sold work, which will go towards producing future BEAMS events.

Please send a brief description of your performance/sound artwork, a short bio, number of performers, technical requirements and if possible provide a link to audio or video support materials by Friday, December 14th 2018. 

Please share this information with whoever you can. Let’s have a great celebration for 2019!
