AUDIO POSTCARDS ­ – Call for sounds!

This is a call for submissions to Audio Postcards sourced from across the Canadian soundscape. This call is open to ecological researchers, audio artists, composers, and the listening public. In 1 to 2 minutes, create or capture an aural image of a place, moment, or region of Canada. We are open to sonic explorations of weather, urban life, animals, environmental data, or just the sounds from your porch. We welcome any submissions ranging from unedited field recordings to completely transformed electroacoustic compositions; our goal is to hear how YOU hear the acoustic environment!

CASE is curating a series of concerts across Canada that will feature selections of these postcards from across the country and highlight additional aspects of acoustic ecology unique to each concert location. Additionally, a collection of postcards will be selected by a jury for an online audio exhibition on the CASE website.

All sounds must collected within Canada. Maximum 3 submissions per person. Open to international submissions provided the sounds are from Canada. The submitter is responsible for ensuring they have permission to capture/use the audio. All copyright remains with the submitter.
