Call for Applications: Sound Residency at Khoj
Khoj International Artists’ Association is inviting applications for a four week residency around the thematic of sound.
Sound Art in India is a nascent, but emerging field. With more and more artists and musicians exploring the meaning of sound, a new language is being understood and redefined. The understanding of sound beyond music is leading to new experiments embodying new auditory sensibilities and awareness.
Khoj has been engaging with the sonic and auditory practices since 2006. Khoj is aiming to growing opportunities of dialogical and practical exchange to foster sharing and growth of auditory understanding. The growing expertise and enthusiasm in other fields like urban architecture and planning, bio acoustics, sociology, technology and linguistics, has added to the interdisciplinary dialogue. This collaborative approach at Khoj has helped in employing various media to craft sonic landscapes.
To continue the ongoing engagement, Khoj is curating an International residency in January 2013. Applications are invited from Indian and international artists and practitioners exploring sound recording methodologies and aural practices including oral histories, bio-acoustic, electro-acoustic, radio art, noise and field recordings. The proposals can also explore modalities of listening and synaesthetic applications of sound.
