CFP: Sound and Creative Processes, 1/1/13
Sound and Creative Processes
Call for Posts due January 1st, 2013
Inspired by novelist Bridget Hoida’s July 9, 2012 post, “SO! LA: Sounding the California Story,” –in which she discusses the long history of sound’s influence on her writing–Sounding Out! seeks more work exploring the relationship between sound and creative processes.
Here are some guiding questions to consider. . .
- How do artists listen? How does listening inform your creative work?
- When and how does sound influence the creative process?
- In what ways have arts not traditionally understood as “sonic” been shaped by the sound worlds around them?
- How is sound considered in the production/installation/publication of artistic projects?
We welcome the perspectives of artists of all stripes–visual artists, plastic artists, multi/inter-media artists, digital artists, graffiti artists, actors, writers, poets, performance artists, DJs, and any combination thereof–and content that is practical, theoretical, or a blend of both. Many of our best posts mix both a research-based perspective while examining an aural experience through a first-person narrative style. We also encourage pitches for podcasts on this issue as well as ideas for artistic posts that use the blog format to create an original audio-visual experience.
Please pitch your idea to us in 250 (or less) of your best words by January 1st. Send inquiries and submissions to Jennifer Stoever-Ackerman, SO!’s Editor in Chief and Guest Posts Editor, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Don’t forget to read our submission guidelines before sending us your stuff. Good luck!
