What is the sound of the intermediary and what does this entity (person, myth, animal) herald?
Perhaps you hear an almost silent, whispered, ghostly emissary. Possibly you awaken from noisy, exhausting dream visitations of sonic distortions sent over many waters. Maybe there are reveries brought about by the visually salient but silent harbingers of something ungraspable—a being that flew by your visual periphery, but, audibly, is unmistakable.
What is the audible form of the intermediary?
Works can be as simple as a single voice or a mixed complexity of story strands. Their media origins can be radiophonic or site-specific or visual or time-based but excerptible for the ears for this online flattened sphere. Your production can be fully conceived for Liminal Sounds or an audio sketch you’ve been mulling around. Be expansive.
Naturally audio artistry and radio stories of thematic relevance and audio verité treks are sought for this open call. But Earlid will also consider writing that is sound-full or a sound-rich video for submission as well. Work produced specifically for this theme or from pre-existing projects, but are able to stand-alone for such presentation are accepted as are hybrids of format and genre (documentary and art, fiction and truth, etc.).
Length: keep it short, between 1 and 5 minutes.
Submit mp3 and written context and an artist link to Earlid’s curator, Joan Schuman:
Deadline: January 8, 2016.
