S'il est encore un peu tôt pour vous en faire la prommotion et vous communiquer le programme, je relaie ici l'appel à projets qui participera justement à élaborer l'édition 2009 du festival.
Voici l'appel (en anglais)
24-29 September 2009
Presented by Sound And Music and MAAP
Expo is the hub and playground of the experimental music and sound art scene in the UK and beyond. Free and open, the event mobilises a national network of artists and engages with communities from all backgrounds – placing sonic art and the people who make it in direct contact with the public. Expo steps out from traditional venues and into spaces that lie at the heart of the community - inspiring practitioners and the public to reconsider their environments.
Annually relocating, Expo traverses the country dispersing into the locality it arrives in, scattering events, happenings and sounds across the towns and cities it visits, joining together place, people and art. Work is drawn from a national call and the event collaborates with local partners and highlights the work of local artists. In the spirit of open culture and accessibility the project has developed a social community ethic amongst contributing artists and has encouraged creative approaches to the staging of new work.
Expo will land in Leeds in September '09 for a long weekend of performance, exhibition and presentation which will take place across a variety of physical and virtual spaces.
The weekend aims to highlight the broadest possible range of approaches and thinking that surround the sonic arts. We welcome submissions of all kinds.
There is no charge for the submission or acceptance of work and entry to the festival will continue to be free to all. We do ask that selected artists attend the event. In order to keep the festival open, free and accessible we are unable to offer artist fees for work submitted (except for the paid commissions).
Call for Submissions
Submissions are sought in all forms of sonic art including real-time interactive works, improvisation with technology, experimental electronica, instrumental/electroacoustic mixes, acousmatic music, sound installations, noise, environmental sound work, conceptual sound art, performances, internet-based creative work, radiophonic work, sound and image works and cross-arts work. In summary, we welcome submissions of all kinds of work incorporating experimental use of sound as a major element.
