Tsonami International Sound Art fest call for submissions

Open call for proposals of sound research projects

The Tsonami International Sound Art Festival has put out an open call for submissions from artists, theoreticians, researchers and architects for proposals of sound research projects to take part in a residency at the festival’s tenth edition in Valparaíso, Chile. “We are looking for projects that will be able to research sound and its relationship with the specific social, spacial and urban aspects of Valparaíso,” they say. ”Projects that focus on the development of work processes and methodologies that question one of the many problems and tensions that inhabit this city. These can be global problems associated to contemporary cities, anchored in the specificity that a port city entails, or questions related to certain particularities of territory, leaving the elaboration of possible links between sound and urban/social aspects as an open choice.”

Deadline for submissions is 12 June. More information can be found on their website.
