The FAR Listening Post is currently accepting proposals for multi-channel audio work from audio artists worldwide. Selected works will be heard in our space on a rotating basis, and will remain available in our catalogue for future programs. Visit artsresearch.fsu.edu to learn more.
The Facility for Arts Research (FAR) is a unique initiative of Florida State University’s College of Fine Arts. FAR incorporates both Small Craft Advisory Press (SCAP), which blends traditional and digital printmaking processes and promotes collaborations between artists and writers to create artists’ books, and formLab, which gives artists, designers and scientists access to a variety of tools they can use to create unique 3D objects and explore and visualize form in a tactile, multisensory way.
The FAR Listening Post is a new, intimate venue for sound art housed within the Facility for Arts Research. The audition space is a roughly cubic volume about 4 meters on a side and contains a fixed array of eight speakers, one at each vertex. The walls are acoustically treated.
Please apply at http://artsresearch.fsu.edu/2013/02/far-listening-post/. You’ll be asked to submit a link to your work along with a description, technical specifications, artist statement and any other documentation you feel is relevant. Particularly important is to note the disposition of channels if it is not inherent in the format. We consider entries in virtually any general-use digital audio format: wav, ogg, mp3, amb, aiff, etc. but may have difficulty with proprietary formats that require a particular software application to reproduce–if you use Max/MSP, Plogue Bidule, PD or similar, please send us a link to the recorded audio output rather than the patch itself.
