Call for Works: Bus Obscura
Mar 29 2008 | 11:04 pm
I'm looking for 10-15 minute pieces to be played in a school bus tricked out with 1000 camera obscuras. Mostly SF Bay Area Artists, but not exclusively. Email me or Simon (below). Details:
1000 camera obscuras in a moving bus looking for proposals from sound artists/musicians for live or recorded ‘soundtrack' coming to Dublin City and San Francisco Bay Area 19th - 28th April (details to be announced) for information about Bus Obscura go to :
Bus Obscura is an amazing visual experience -- passengers travel on the bus as usual but instead of looking directly to the world outside, the windows are transformed into projection screens that collect hundreds of small images that ﬂow into each other. We are inviting proposals from sound artists who would be interested in being a part of this project either by submitting a CD that could be played during one of the journeys or by proposing a live performance. We are looking for proposals that will jive with the visual experience -- think of it as putting a soundtrack to a ﬁlm. Each journey lasts between 10 and 15 minutes and audio pieces should be tailored accordingly.
If you think you are interested in participating in this project please send an email with a brief outline of your ideas and/or a link to examples of previous work and a telephone number to:
