ZKM Center for Art and Media - My City, My Sounds project call
ZKM | Center for Art and Media in Karlsruhe, Germany invites artists to apply for a one-month residency with new project ideas for the app »MyCity, MySounds«.
»MyCity, MySounds« is a georeferencing app for iOS- and Android-based smart devices developed by ZKM | Institute for Music and Acoustics in 2014. »MyCity, MySounds« can be used to record field-recordings, create site-specific miniature compositions, media-supported Soundwalks or audio and video walks and share them with a growing community. For this purpose, sounds are recorded with the app or loaded into the app and positioned on a digital map according to their localization data.
»MyCity, MySounds« was developed further in 2017 by ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe in cooperation with the Athens institutions Onassis Cultural Centre and Medea Electronique as part of the project »INTERFACES« and is co-financed by the European Union's »Creative Europe« funding programme.
Four scholarships of 1500€ each will be awarded. Within the framework of an Artist Residency at ZKM, the selected artists will be able to work on their project ideas and sketches over a period of one month and realize a new artistic work. Over the one-month scholarship period, the artists have no obligation to reside in Karlsruhe, although sporadic stays at the ZKM | Karlsruhe have to be scheduled.
Travel expenses will be covered up to an amount of 400€. Accomodation expenses will be covered up to an amount of 500€.
The residency will take place in the second half of 2018 and must have been completed by the end of 2018.
The deadline for submission of artistic project ideas is May 20,2018.
