FLOOD seeks sound art for inclusion in a variety of on-site and online presentation

June – November 2024.

soundpedro2023 (both on-site and virtual) continues to explore sound as we shift from the idea of “ear orientation” towards that of “sound intake*.” In other words, broadening the auditory perception of sound as a meaningful phenomenon towards the physical reception of sound as experiential.
*The encounter of any mechanism, organic or synthetic, with sound waves.

We encourage proposals that explore or incorporate:

• Acoustics
• AI
• Audio technologies
• Auralities
• Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR)
• Conceptualization
• Connection of sound & hearing to sight and seeing

• Deafnesses
• Degrees of hearing & listening
• Ear orientation
• Electronics
• Found sound
• Hearing anatomies
• Imagined aural response

• Listening actions
• Paleo&Archaeoacoustics
• Performance actions
• Psychoacoustics
• Spatialization
• Synaesthetic responses to sound
• Timbralization

It is important that artists understand that soundpedro is a sound art event and not a music event. Work characterized solely by the elements and hierarchical use of pitch, melody, rhythm, tempo or meter will not be accepted. Juxtaposing musical content with sound or other sensory expressions should express the differences.
If the proposed work “sounds like music,” we require an explanation as to why it qualifies as sound art.
