CALL FOR ENTRIES
In its cooperation with hr2-kultur, ZKM | Institute for Music and Acoustics announces a tender for new radiophonic or electro-acoustic works based on material from a radio play by the French composer Luc Ferrari.
New Audio Pieces based on the Material of the Radio Play JETZT by Luc Ferrari
In 1982 the French composer and radio playwright Luc Ferrari produced the radio play NOW – or probably this is my everyday life, in the confusion of places and moments (JETZT – oder wahrscheinlich ist dies mein Alltag, in der Verwirrung der Orte und der Augenblicke) together with the Hessischer Rundfunk in Frankfurt am Main. The special feature of this two-hour work is that it is at once radio play, protocol of its development process, composition, commentary and German-French translation. Its particular design, which overlays several working stages, is the starting-point of the present project, which makes the two hours of basic materials from the play available to composers and radio playwrights in Germany and France. The idea of the tender is that they use the available material – field recordings from Frankfurt, recordings of the work process, music sequences interpreted by a quartet – to create one more level of the work, a new composition of time and place, in the form of a circularly conceived “radio play about a radio play”. The new composition should have a duration of 5 to 10 minutes and express a specific, interesting and temporally condensed perspective on the material (Ferrari, Frankfurt, the German-French relationship, etc.), using exclusively this material. The manner of its use is optional. The work should be multi-channel (submitted in stereo) so that it can be presented on the surround sound system of the ZKM, the Klangdom
as part of the ARD Radio Play Festival.
The composition should meet the following requirements:
Genre: electro-acoustic music / radiophonic sound art
Use material of Luc Ferraris radio play JETZT
Duration: 5-10 mins.
Format: mp3 – 192 kbit/s, stereo
Multi-channel version for presentation of the selected works at the ZKM_Sounddome
Deadline for submission: September 1, 2011
A jury consisting of Ludger Brümmer (ZKM), Brunhild Ferrari, Stefan Fricke (HR), Julia Gerlach (ZKM), and Frank Halbig (HfG/SWR) will select three pieces from the entries. These works will be presented in a Klangdom concert on November 12, 2011 at 6 pm as part of the ARD Radio Play Festival and broadcast on December 10, 2011 by hr2-kultur (“The Artist's Corner“, 11:05 pm- 12:00 pm). Each of the winners will be awarded a prize of € 500. All further broadcasts will be free of charge for EBU members. By submitting their compositions, the artists declare that they agree with these terms.
Artists should submit a zip file with:
the completed registration form as an RTF document
the composition in mp3 format, 192 kbit/s
The registration form must also be sent in writing and with the artist’s signature
to the following fax number: +49 (0) 721 8100 1699
