holophon.ca is a concert series and audio collective based in Regina, SK that engages with sound as an artistic medium, with a focus on uniting various artistic, geographical and cultural communities through sound-work. In partnership with Tracy Hamon, a poet and writer from Regina, SK we are planning a collaborative concert that reacts against perceptions of post-post modernism by reaching back to modernist roots for inspiration.
Whether it’s Symbolist, Impressionist, or Gertrude Stein’s hermetic word portraits, consider the exchange as an opportunity to emphasize your work. We are seeking submissions that engage modernism as an integral trend of thought that affirms our power to create.
The open call accepts:
• pre-recorded material
• performance • sound/slam/text based poetry
• or any combinations thereof
• no more than 10-15 minutes of material/work or 10-15 pages of text
This event will occur in Regina, SK on Nov. 7, 2009 as a part of season two of holophon.ca’s ongoing event programming. Honorariums will be paid, but we cannot support artist travel fees at this time. Submissions must be received by Sept. 25, 2009.
