                 CALL FOR WORKS

Greetings to all,

This is an invitation to participate on the open Call for Works:

                 CONTROL ACOUSTICS

Zčpellin2005 - Sound Art Festival this year focuses on sound
documents related to the situations where social control is applied
through the sound.

Sound is a symptom of almost every event that takes place in a space.
Amongst all these events there are many human actions that are
intended to apply social control and frequently the sound itself is
the fundamental transmitter / communicator of this control. The
alarms, the telephones, the car horns, the beep sound on the
bulldozers, radio and television devices, all of them inflict social

But these are not the only kinds of sounds that inflict and generate
acoustic violence. Any intense noise can, but also music and the
sounds of the neighborhood that percolate through acoustic bridges or
directly through the open windows. The constant rumble of the city
also applies social control, conditioning many people's sleep, the
bells, the police whistles, and, in some places even the trumpets and
the snare drums of military barracks near by. In very extreme but not
uncommon cases the acoustic violence and social control are inflicted
by bomb explosions and firearm shots.

Zeppelin encourages this year all the musicians, artists, and all the
people implicated or interested in sound creation from all over the
world to make electronic or electroacoustic sound pieces, specially
conceived for playback on speakers and focused on the presence of the
sound in the exercise of control over the human societies

The pieces can be conceived for, at least, one of the three
categories, determined by three different audio devices (octophony,
5+1, radio receivers), explained and detailed on this website:
