Sound Photography

What is the relationship between photography and sound?

In today’s visually-dominated culture, how can we use sound to respond to what we see around us? 

Sound Photography is a unique global collaboration between sound artists and photographers curated by Cities and Memory, launching in March 2018.Sound Photography

Photographers and sound artists around the world will collaborate to produce a series of photographs, each with a corresponding sonic composition based on the image.

A call is currently open for sound artists and musicians to create compositions based on photographs from around the world. 

To enter the project as a sound artist/musician, please email us, telling us something about your current or previous work.

We will then ask you to choose from a selection of photographs submitted to the project.

What we need:

  • An original composition based on and inspired by one of the images submitted to the project (WAV or AIFF, max. 20 mins long)
  • A title for the piece and a description of how it relates to and was inspired by the photograph.
  • Your name, location (city/country) and any website for further info on your work.

The deadline for entering as a sound artist is Sunday 25 February.

This is a unique opportunity for sound artists to engage with photographers, and to create a sonic response to a visual image.

The final selection of images and sounds will be presented as Sound Photography on this site during March.

Copyright note

Photographers and sound artists retain full ownership and copyright of all submissions to the project – they are licensed to Cities and Memory for the purposes of this project and for our overall sound map, but we would never claim copyright or ownership of another artist’s work.
