When: August 28th, 2022 (Sunday) (sometime)
Where: Online (youtube, twitch, archive.org)
What: enscribed video works of noise artists from Edmonton, from
Alberta, from Canada, and from all over the world.
Call for Submissions:
Dear Noise Musicians and Noise non-musicians!
This August 2022 we are hosting Edmonton NoiseFest virtually. It
will be a streamed video event showcasing Edmonton Noise, Albert
Noise, Canada Noise, and International Noise in Video Form.
We will be releasing a curration of whatever is submitted on August
28th on Youtube and Archive.org (because they have better sound and
youtube is fundamentally unethical).
Submissions should be exclusive (self-release is fine) but if it
plays at another festival or something please warn us (youtube
likes to take things down).
