Taking place at Angels Gate Cultural Center, soundpedro will be an art event taking place June 3rd, 2017, produced by the Long Beach artist group, FLOOD. Ear-oriented, multi-sensory art will be placed throughout the site, indoors, and outdoors. While work should address sound and aural perception, the option of aurality/hearing in combination with other senses is welcome. Projects—some interactive and some self-contained—will include sculptures, environments, installations, timed and ongoing performances, interactions, and presentations. It is the variety of work that will make for a memorable event.

It is important that artists realize that soundpedro is a sound art event and not a music event. Work that is characterized solely by elements of pitch, melody, rhythm, tempo or meter cannot be considered. We encourage participation that explores or incorporates acoustics, psychoacoustics, electronics, audio technologies, listening actions, performance actions, spatialization, conceptualization, timbralization, found sound, or environmental sound. Work may examine the interface in which experimental music and sound art connect.

If you are local, before submitting an application it is advisable to visit Angels Gate in order to become familiar with the many potential spaces. Also, you can visit soundpedro for additional information and photos.

Any costs for production of work and/or travel expenses are the artist’s responsibility. FLOOD will gladly write letters of recommendation for those artists seeking funds elsewhere.

If you are invited to participate in soundpedro, your name, likeness, as well as your artworks may be used for publicity purposes and materials related to this event, including, but not limited to, press releases, advertising posters, publications, recordings and websites.

By submitting your application electronically, you authorize the use of your name, likeness and work for the above-mentioned purpose. Please note that all other personal information (address, telephone numbers, etc.) is strictly for internal business.
