Sound Thought 2016 – Dialogues: Sound and Music across the Arts, Call for Papers/Works

sound thought

University of Glasgow has announced a new edition of Sound Thought, its annual postgraduate festival dedicated to exhibit theoretical and practical works of researchers and contemporary practitioners whose work intersects music, sound and other art forms.

“Sound Thought offers postgraduate researchers the opportunity to present their work in a collaborative, interdisciplinary environment, alongside performances and installations. We welcome submissions from postgraduate researchers, academics, professionals, and practitioners of music, sound art, and electronic and audiovisual media, as well as from artists in other fields. The meeting-points of artistic genres are often unruly, defying both chronology and medium; therefore, Sound Thought contributions will be arranged according to artistic topic and aesthetic stance. The resulting interplay between events — in addition to the events themselves — will thus offer a further source of interdisciplinary insight.”

The upcoming edition, ‘Dialogues’, will take place between March 30th and April 1st, next year and is being organised in collaboration with GLEAM (Glasgow Audiovisual and Electronic Media), LUX Scotland, the Pipe Factory, and the Glasgow New Music Expedition (GNOME) Ensemble.

There is an open call for papers, compositional and fixed-media works, performances, installations, among other artistic outputs that reflect around the aesthetics of music and sound. The deadline for submissions is December 20th, 2015 and the accepted proposals will be announced on January 20th, 2016.
