ISSTC 2012 Call for submissions
Noise, bytes, bits: states of sound
The Irish Sound, Science and Technology Association (ISSTA) announces a Call for Submissions for its second annual Convocation. The four categories includes Musical Works, Sound Art/Installations, Papers/Posters and Workshops.
Noise has become ubiquitous in most of our lives. As listening is an imaginative activity, so noise is a cultural construct, and has always been a presence in our music, communication and environment. From Russolo to the post-digital arts, noise has been increasingly accepted into the realm of artistic practice as valid and evocative material. This Convocation will draw upon both science and art, theory and practice, in exploring these spaces and focuses on how contemporary science and technology affects the concept of noise.
The second annual Irish Sound, Science and Technology Convocation (ISSTC) will be held August 1-2, 2012 at the Cork School of Music and St. John’s College in Cork.
Submissions are due 30 March 2012.
