long description

ECAS Working Period III

»Ubiquitous Art and Music.«
Art, Sound and the Everyday

29.05.2012 - 30.11.2013

Sound and digital image are everywhere. A consequence of the ever-spreading reach of advertising, and also the rise of new technologies such as ubiquitous and pervasive computing. This phenomenon is matched by new artistic approaches to creating art and music for the public realm. Ecoustic ecology is the composition of public sound environments which transforms 'noise pollution' into engaging soundscapes. Locative media involves creating digital artworks which are experienced in public spaces using location-aware mobile devices. Generally, there is increasing interest in presenting cultural activities in 'lived spaces' where people go about their everyday lives, instead of culture being the preserve of traditional arts venues and museums. The 'city' is increasingly a focus, as urban spaces draw together different communities and forms of media and technology, and digital technology is changing the function of the city, and dissolving the boundaries between work and play.

The Working Period III programme will be led by co-applicants who are at the forefront of devising cultural events that respond to the urban context, within some of Europe's most densely populated regions or alternatively among the most remote regions on Europe's periphery. TodaysArt and FutureEverything will commission and present highly imaginative ways of responding to urban environments in the Netherlands and the UK, and in Tromsø, Norway, with Insomnia.
