OPEN CALL FOR SOUNDS II: Experimental Sound Lab

The final open call for sounds:

“We want to contribute to the cultural exchange between artists around the world, to encourage innovation and evolution, to combine ideas in different contexts, to join forces, to share and to collaborate on the Internet. With this in mind, we are curating a free sound library, which is going to comprise sounds by skilled artists from around the world.

This open call is the second and the last open call for sounds of this project. We already selected 40 packs and we would like to reach the number of 60 packs. After the deadline on July 30, we are going to announce an open call for tracks created out of these sounds. Thus, we want to involve a bunch of people in the process of creation of an album, aiming to reach new horizons in collaborative creation.

The sounds of the ESL are also being used by artists to make amazing art, like THÆTA by Stratofyzika intermedia performance collective. The interactive soundtrack of THÆTA uses mostly the sounds we shared during 21 minutes. The piece merges interactively body dynamics, auditory sensations and visuals function in live performance.

Thalamus LabHarvestworks (New York, US), Niu (Barcelona, Spain) and Netlabelism (Ghent, Belgium) invite you to participate in the creation of a free collaborative sound library and an album, which will be officially presented in various listening sessions in different countries.
