OPEN CALL: sound artists wanted for Sound Photography

Sound PhotographyThe first phase of our Sound Photography project was a great success, with 100 photographs contributed from six continents and more than 30 countries, and some really inspiring source material to work with.

Now we want you to take part in our open call – by creating a sound piece based on one of these photographs.

It’s a free composition – you just need to create a sound piece that’s inspired by or based on one of the images from our project collection. It’s up to you how you do it.

This really is a unique collaboration between photographers and sound artists, exploring the relationship between what we see and what we hear – so drop us a line now if you’d like to be part of it.

How does it work?

1. Email us to tell us you’d like to take part, and we’ll send you the database of images from around the world.

2. Tell us your top two choices to work with, and we’ll allocate one of them to you if it’s available (or we can pick one for you if you prefer).

3. You will have around four weeks to create a sound piece based on/inspired by that image. It’s a free composition, which can include field recordings, musical content or anything you choose, so long as it’s inspired by the image.

4. You submit the sound, with a title and a brief description telling us how you got from the photo to the sound.

The photos will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, so the sooner you apply, the more images you’ll have to choose from.

We’re looking forward to hearing from you!
