Audio Art call

espacio-audio: audio projects
Deadline: June 1, 2009

espacio-audio (audio space) is a curated site-specific audio frequency dedicated to the promotion/ experimentation of audio art. It was created to addresses the lack of audio exhibition spaces in Houston, to serve as an outlet for audio experimentation, to promote audio artists within/ outside of the city of Houston and to challenge the physical boundaries of exhibition space through sound. It is drive-up/ walk-up site-specific frequency and is currently one of a handful of audio friendly exhibition spaces in Houston.

espacio-audio is currently seeking audio art proposals for our 2009-2010 season. The selected pieces will be aired for a three-month period at various locations throughout Houston. We are looking for works that transcend the existing perimeters of audio art. The pieces can be, but are not limited to, challenging, soothing, confronting or projecting opaque thought. There are no limitations on topics or proposed themes, no preference to abstraction or solidity of sound. We are simply looking for thought provoking proposals laced with innovation.

To apply please email the items listed below along with a description sheet and your audio sample to

1) Overview of you project (500 words)
2) Description/theory behind your audio sample (1-2 pages)
2) Curriculum Vitae with updated address, phone number and email
3) Web site, blog and/or online audio sample

Applications must be received by June 1, 2009, 5:30 p.m. (This is not a post-marked deadline). Incomplete applications will not be reviewed. For additional information please visit

Astrodime Intransit - FEED call

Every day we are becoming more dependent on information: When we cannot access our e-mail, or forget our mobile, we often go into withdrawal. We have become part of the Network. Increasingly this connection is literal: an implanted pacemaker is tested and reset using tones over a phone line held near the chest. Science and Medicine announce such cybernetic innovation daily. We have been assimilated.

FEED explores the concepts of Network as influenced by Information Transmission, Sustenance, Consumption, Symbiosis. FEED questions the borders that separate human and machine, organic and inorganic. The project seeks to examine our societal hunger for constant information flow. FEED seeks to remind us that we too have become part of the information network: we feed it, as it feeds us.

Astrodime Transit Authority is collaborating with the FEED Exhibitio. INtransit Volume Number 5 will comprise part of the video submissions to the FEED exhibition happening in Boston in Fall 2009. INtransit: FEED will be screened in its entirety at the exhibition, as well as at other venues.

We are looking for short experimental films (35mm / 16mm / 8mm), videos (single channel experimental, videoart, or documentary), innovative animations, and experimental digital & graphic productions (to be screened). Accepted submissions will be published in a DVD video journal. Pieces under ten minutes are preferred. There is no entry fee. Preview discs will not be returned unless a SASE with sufficient postage is enclosed. Please label all materials.

Please send preview NTSC DVD submissions to:
