ECAS open call for submissions

ECAS (European Cities Of Advanced Sound), the network of European festivals, has opened a call for submissions. Two works will be selected to be realised, receiving a total of €10,000 each (€5000 for project realisation and €5000 artist fee). The theme for submissions is Networking Tomorrow's Art For An Unknown Future.

The work must relate to sound and music, and reach out to other disciplines. ECAS is interested in works that make connections between geographic points and artistic interest groups, science and technology, and communities or minority groups. The final works will be presented at one of the member festivals - Musikprotokoll in Graz, Skanu Mezs in Riga, and Unsound in Krakow.

Submissions must be new, unrealised works at time of submission. Deadline for applications is 31 March 2012. Two works will be selected by a jury appointed by the participating organisations. Winners will be announced in May 2012. More info and full submission guidelines here.
