> The Henry Miller Library in Big Sur, in conjunction with the Martin
> LaBorde Gallery Performance Series, is calling for artists to perform in
> the first-ever Big Sur Experimental Music and Performance Art Festival.
> The event will be held on May 29th and 30th at the historical Henry
> Miller Library, nestled in a redwood-lined canyon in beautiful Big Sur,
> California. The space is an intimate outdoor venue that can comfortably
> accommodate 200 people; it captures the inspirational spirit of Henry
> Miller, the world-renowned writer, artist, and Big Sur resident.
> The festival's goal for 1999 is to attract at least 200 people over the
> two days, and to provide an innovative forum for artists and audience
> alike. We are looking for musicians and performers whose work is
> experimental, improvisational, or avant-garde in nature. In addition,
> there will be a morning pre-concert of electro-acoustic tape pieces, and
> we welcome submissions in that genre.
> Equipment provided: The festival will provide a six-channel PA and a
> professional sound engineer. Otherwise, performers will provide their
> own equipment. Unfortunately, an acoustic piano will not be available.
> Payment: There is very limited funding for this first-year event. After
> costs, revenue will be divided equally among the performers. No artist
> fee or traveling stipend is available at this point, but the festival
> will provide low-cost camping arrangements and subsidized food for the
> performers. Information about other possible housing arrangements will
> be included in the materials for festival participants.
> * a brief statement of the proposed project
> * CV/professional resume
> * promotional photograph
> * two reviews (optional)
> * a representative sample of your work:
> Musicians/composers: one recording (CD or cassette tape)
> Poets: 5-10 pages of poetry and/or recording of a performance
> Dancers/performance artists: one VHS video tape
> Work samples will be returned if a self-addressed, stamped envelope of
> sufficient size and postage is included.
