Call for works Phonurgia Nova awards 2009
Chisel, cut, mix, edit, record, erase, overlay, sync, set in spaces… Creating sound works is a lighter task than making a film. But sometimes more powerful
> Among the awarded prizes for acoustic creation, the Phonurgia Nova competition has, since 1986, occupied a special place by virtue of its recognition of artists whose work exploits sound as a medium for expressing the real and the imaginary. In 2008, 289 productions and projects from 20 different countries entered the competition. The winners were Andréas Bick (Germany) and Bernadette Johnson (Switzerland), Erik Bullot (France), Alessandro Bosetti (Germany) and Nicole Marmet (France). > This year’s contest will once again distinguish authors whose work manifests a keen sense of sound and listening as means of expression, in two areas : A) Radio Arts, will privilige all forms of inventive radiophonic creation : feature, new documentary, fiction, essay, radio mix, hörspiel, soundscapes, phonographies, etc… B) New Media awards will go both to “sound installations” and to sonic works which are specially created for “new media” or a new combination of media, and which bring new sound experiences to listeners.
The Jury is chaired by the French sound director Daniel Deshays. The preselection of the candidates will be communicated at the beginning of December. The jury will deliberate the 12th and 13th of December in the Reattu Museum – Arles (France) – during two days of listening and discussion open to all applicants. The deadline for submission is the 15th of October, 2009.To get more information go to : http://www.phonurgia.org more sounds : www.transradio.org
