Betreff: [ANNOUNCE] Call for a multimedia project with the European Bridges


The European Bridges Ensemble in collaboration with the Hochschule für Musik
und Theater Hamburg and the Hungarian Computer Music Foundation is inviting
project proposals for its 2009 summer residency and the 2009/2010 concert

The European Bridges Ensemble (EBE) is looking for a artist(*) or a team of
artists interested in working together to create a network piece. Its
duration should be between 6 to 12 minutes.

The artist(s) chosen will work with the ensemble during the summer residency
in Hamburg, Germany between July 11 and 25, 2009. The result will be
presented at the 2009 Hamburg Klangwerktage festival in late November as
well as at the Music in the Global Village conference in Budapest in early
December of 2009.

The ensemble:
The ensemble consists of 5 electronic musicians (Kai Niggemann, Germany;
Adam Siska, Hungary; Johannes Kretz, Austria; Andrea Szigetvári, Hungary;
Ivana Ognjanovic, Serbia) performing on standard and/or alternate
controllers, a video artists (Stewart Collinson, UK) and a conductor (Georg
Hajdu, Germany).

The ensemble will pay for travel, accommodation as well as a stipend of 1000
Euros (for individual) or 2000 Euros (for a team of two and more) for the
Hamburg residency.

The applicants are supposed to send a portfolio either by mail or email
- samples of previous works demonstrating expertise both in live music and
video processing (knowledge of network/Internet music is an asset but not an
absolute requirement.)
- a detailed description of the proposed project including a statement on
the use of alternate controllers, video and audio.
- a CV

Workshops during the residency will provide expertise in how to use the
Quintet.net—the environment the European Bridges Ensemble uses in their
performances. Advanced knowledge of Cycling '74's Max programming
environment is a necessity. We particularly encourage the use of Percussa's
AudioCubes of which the ensemble owns six.

Deadline:  March 10, 2009

Notification: The applicants will be notified about their status no later
than May 1, 2009.

The jury consists of Andrew Gerzso (IRCAM, Paris), Pedro Rebelo (SARC,
Belfast) and members of the European Bridges Ensemble

This project was made possible by a Culture 2007 multi-annual cooperation
grant by the European Commission. The name of the project is CO-ME-DI-A
(Collaboration and Mediation in the Digital Arts). Project partners are
IRCAM (Paris), SARC (Belfast), Casa Paganini (Genoa), CIANT (Prague),
MUG/IEM (Graz), HfMT (Hamburg), HCMF (Budapest)
