Open call for works for Kaffe Matthews's sonic bikes

Bicrophonic Research Institute call for works for September performance in London Fields

Kaffe Matthews’s Bicrophonic Research Institute, which makes sonic bikes for hire, has an open call for composers, sound artists and musicians to create sound works which will create a collective performance in and around London Fields on 5–6 August. Applications are open for any form of sound work and can be scored as one track, or multiple smaller tracks to be mapped together to result in a 15–30 minute cycle journey.

Submissions must be in the form of a 500 word proposal, biography and two examples of past work. Selected applications will receive an introduction to the sonic bikes at a weekend workshop with Kaffe Matthews on 15–16 August, with the works developed and completed between 16–31 August. Deadline for submissions is 1 July. A full document with guidelines on how to apply can be downloaded here.
