Our friends over at Vacua Moenia in Sicily are putting out their annual call for field recordists and sound artists.
Entitled ‘Speed of Sound’, it takes inspiration from Barry Truax’s Handbook for Acoustic Ecology, and investigates ‘the propagation of sound’ in a landscape, including how topographical elements such as soil, hills and other obstacles shape and alter the sound.
Recordists or sound artists are invited to submit a piece – either a field recording or a composition – reflecting on the various aspects of the landscape.
The results will be published as an album via Vacua Moenia, and there will be a limited run of 30 physical copies in hand-made packaging too.
The deadline for submissions is 14 March, and you can find more info over here.
