SONIC ARTS NETWORK PRESENTS EXPO 966
THE ANNUAL SAN EXPOSITION
17-20 JUNE 2005
In conjunction with University of Hull, Scarborough Campus
 
Expo 966 is an opportunity to showcase the work of the best UK
practitioners, to meet, listen and respond. After the success of last yearıs
highly eclectic event in Leicester the focus now shifts northward with a
packed weekend of SAN curated action hosted in association with The
University of Hull, Scarborough Campus. This weekend of performance,
exhibition and presentation will take place across a variety of public
venues and spaces in Scarborough including concert halls, bars and
nightclubs, each reflecting the unique culture of this northern seaside
town. The weekend aims to highlight the broadest possible range of
approaches and thinking that surrounds the sonic arts. We welcome
submissions of all kinds.
 
There is no charge for the submission or acceptance of work, and indeed
entry to the weekend continues to be free to all members of Sonic Arts
Network with most events free to all members of the public. We do ask that
selected artists attend the event. This call is open to all UK practitioners
and all international members of Sonic Arts Network.
 
Call for Works, Papers and Commission Proposals
 
Submissions
 
Submissions are sought in all forms of sonic art including real-time
interactive works, improvisation with technology, experimental electronica,
instrumental/electroacoustic mixes, acousmatic music, installations,
environmental sound work, performances, internet-based creative work, sound
and image works and cross-arts work. Though we welcome submissions of all
kinds we are particularly keen to receive submissions that reflect in some
way the cultural context of Scarborough.
 
Works must have been created after January 2004.
 
Some resources are limited and, for example performers must be supplied by
the submitting artists, however a range of performance and presentation
spaces will be available at The Spa Centre on the Scarborough seafront
(including a large auditorium with open stage and a generous bar space
suitable for less formal concert presentation) and the Campus Centre,
University of Hull Scarborough Campus (including two performance spaces, a
bar space equipped with PA system and video projection and multiple rooms of
various sizes for the presentation of installation work). There is also
scope for outdoor performance and we will be staging late bar gigs on every
night of the conference including a Friday evening opening gig at the Ocean
Room at the Spa Complex on the Scarborough seafront and an exclusive
electro-cabaret event for late Saturday night.
 
Available equipment will include: a multi-channel sound diffusion system
catering for projection of stereo and multi-channel works (ADAT or hard
disk) and smaller, adaptable stereo systems suitable for installation work,
Macintosh G5 (dual processing) and G4 computers (OSX and OS9.2) with
Digi001, 002 and MOTU 828 Firewire (mark one) audio interfaces. Video
projection facilities are also available.
 
 
Research Papers
 
Aurality and Identity
 
Aurality and Identity is the theme of the final day of the conference
(Monday 20 June 2005) that will be devoted to research presentations
relating to the ever-increasing presence, and wider understanding of, the
social implications of sound. This is to include the use of sound in
projects and works that address concepts of cultural, social and political
identities as well as the role played by aurality in learning and
communication with regard to social development and education theory.
Presentations may take the form of written papers or discussions of
creative, research or practical work (including work in progress).
Presenters should plan for 20 minutes presentation time and a further 10
minutes discussion time will be allowed.
