Hi all, just a reminder:

Call for Works: Non-Cochlear Sound Art

Diapason will be working with sound artist and author Seth Kim-Cohen to
present an exhibition of "Non-Cochlear Sound", as formulated in Kim-Cohen's
book "In the Blink of an Ear: Toward a Non-Cochlear Sonic Art" (Continuum).
The exhibition is scheduled for October, 2010. Non-Cochlear Sound describes
a form of sonic practice not primarily concerned with the ear. Marcel
Duchamp’s famous call for a non-retinal visual art was answered (eventually)
by minimalism, conceptual art, social-based practice, and a host of
approaches that appeal not to the eye, but to other concerns. In his new
book, In The Blink Of An Ear: Toward a Non-Cochlear Sonic Art, artist and
theorist Seth Kim-Cohen asks why sound has been slower to make the
conceptual, linguistic, and social turns. As a way of responding to this
question and of “redressing” this perhaps unfortunate sonic situation, we
seek sound work that engages any or all of the following: sociality,
conceptualism, politics, textuality, discursivity, subjectivity, history,
economics, or philosophy.

Deadline: June 3, 2010
