Sound is art – Phonurgia Nova Awards 2009
Call for works
The Loud-speaker is probably the greatest common denominator in all our lives to-day. Video, multimedia, car radios, mobile phones are all crafting a new life for sound. In all domains sound is an objet of research, of reflexion.
Call for Works
This year’s competition will distinguish authors whose work manifests a keen sense of sound and listening as means of expression. The jury will deliberate on two areas :
++ Radio Arts will privilige all forms of inventive radio (documentary, feature, fiction, essays, Hörspiel, experimental forms etc.)
++ Inter Media awards will go to “sound installations” or works which have been specially created for “inter media environment” to bring new experiences in sound to listeners.
In each category the jury will deliberate on two types of work :
1) completed productions
How to apply
The competition is open to all artists without exception and for any work produced later than 2006, regardless of language, format, duration or genre.
Each work or project submitted must be accompanied by a separate registration form, filled out in English or in French, and must be sent on a separate CD or other digital medium.
Each submission must include:
-a biography of the author(s) and general information concerning his (their) habitual manner of working (this will not be given to the jury).
-an authorization to participate from the production or the co-authors of the works submitted
-30 euros registration fee for each work submitted to the competition (there is a limit of two works per author).
-for finished products: a digital copy or transfer of the work (audio CD or DVD), accompanied by a well documented presentation of the work
-for projects: a description and/or maquette and/or a scenario of the project, accompanied by any documentation which could inform the jury as to the intention of and the technical facilities required for completion of the piece.
One application form per project or production (and not one per author/producer)
The jury will award:
one Radio Arts prize and
one New Media prize and 4 500 euros and
three artist’s residencies at GRM/INA, IMEB and GMVL, (three famous sound art centers located in Paris, Bourges and Lyon).
The main selective criterion remains the expression of an original artistic vision. At least 4 works will be selected for presentation in Arles in the Museum for Contemporary Art Musée Réattu. Additional prizes could be given at this time.
