Just a reminder before some of us get swallowed by the festive
season. Tune in, paricipate, disseminnate.


January 17th is the birthday of Art!

To celebrate Artís 1,000,0042nd Birthday and in combination with the Western Front's Reverie project, we are organizing a 24 hour web-cast of audio art under the theme of DREAM.

The works should be up to 10 minutes long. Artists can participate in different ways:

1. phone-in and the phone call will be relayed over the Internet. 2. send us a pre-recorded piece on CD, DAT, cassette. 3. send us a MP3 file over the Internet. 4. artists who are in Vancouver can perform their work live in our concert hall.

The broadcast time will be done at the time of your own birth, so provide astart time according to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).

It can be your birth time, but if it is a collective this can be the time theband was formed too, not all the members birthdays.

Only one work per submitter (unless you were born twice).

There will also be some pre-birthday performances on the January 14-16. If you would like to send a phone call to DREAM, contact us at <reverie- info@front.bc.ca>

"Art's Birthday"

is an annual event first proposed in 1963 by French artist Robert Filliou.

He suggested that 1,000,000 years ago, there was no art. But one day, on the 17th of January to be precise, Art was born. According to Filliou, it happened when someone dropped a dry sponge into a bucket of water. Modest beginnings, but look at us now.

Filliou proposed a public holiday to celebrate the presence of art in our lives. In recent years, the idea has been taken up by a loose network of artists and friends around the world.

Each year the Eternal Network evolves to include new partners - working with the ideas of exchange and telecommunications-art.

Reverie is a virtual urban landscape (on the Web). Inside this city, an ever-expanding group of international sound artists will build venues for their work. Over time, the growing collection of audio art venues will define a structure of neighbourhoods and communities in which artists plan time-based events and engage other inhabitants in collaboration and exchange. Reverie includes artist-in-residence projects, artist talks, presentations, streaming events, and a catalogue with an accompanying audio CD.
