<nettime-ann> [Fwd: Sound Development City 2014: Call for Projects]

---------------------------- Original Message ----------------------------

SOUND DEVELOPMENT CITY  Sound Development City ( was initiated in 2012 by
Development with the aim of providing creative freedom to artists working
in various disciplines. Every year in late summer, Sound Development City
sends ten artists on a three-week-long expedition between two European
cities. During the expedition, the artists work on individual projects,
explore new cities, cultures, and different living environments, and
establish new connections.   Sound Development City is an adventure, a
place for experimentation, and a research trip. The expedition gives
artists time â EURO " time for processes to develop, for experimentation, for
taking new paths â EURO " but also going astray, and for detecting and
discovering the unexpected.   SUMMER EXPEDITION 2014: RIGA â EURO " HELSINKI
The expedition (Link: ) 2014 will explore
the cities of Riga, Helsinki and the Baltic Sea area. We are looking for
interventions, sound surveys, performances, experiments, and artistic
research projects that will benefit from being on the road, and will probe
urban environments as sites of both playfulness as well as social
involvement. Riga and Helsinki serve as resonating urban spaces, as work
material, sources of inspiration, and playground for public presentations.
Each edition of Sound Development City follows a specific thematic
focus. Participants are selected through an open call. Sound Development
City 2014 is seeking projects that engage with theme Mind the Gap! in an
independent and dedicated manner.   MIND THE GAP!  The gap, it seems, is
everywhere: between here and there, me and you, yesterday and today,
between Riga and Helsinki. It can cleave and unite; one either trips over
or is inclined to leap. In fact these gaps carve out a proverbial space
that can be used creatively and become a new artistic reality.   On that
note, Mind the Gap! (Link: ) should be
understood as an invitation to look inward and sharpen the senses to
subtle in-between states, recognize ruptures, transitions and
no-manâ EURO (tm)s-land.    Sound Development City is looking for project
proposals and work theses that comply with the invitation to Mind the Gap!
and that could utilize the three-week expedition from Riga to Helsinki for
realizing these endeavors.    APPLY NOW!  Artists working in all
disciplines can apply through the open call process (Link: ) . The
key requirements are curiosity, openness to experimentation,
process-oriented work, and adventurousness. We also welcome an
inter-disciplinary approach and readiness to collaborate.   The expedition
format itself is meant both as practical instructions as well as metaphor.
Sound Development City is a studio on the road, a research trip for
artists and their projects.  An international Jury of five will select
about 10 participants from the submitted applications.  The juryâ EURO (tm)s
decision will be made public no later than May 30, 2014.   Application
