Genius Loci Weimar 2016 Spatial Audio Competition now is over!
CALL FOR ENTRIES: As part of its 2016 event, the Genius Loci Weimar Festival is hosting an audio competition titled The Spatial Audio Competition for innovative design in the form of an acoustic audio production.
Spatial audio competition is based on the reproduction process of the wave field synthesis, speaker arrays generate a sound field in which the sound source can be located much steadier in comparison to conventional audio systems, thus creating a realistic acoustic environment.
All interested artists can submit their audio concept ideas for the spatial audio installation at the Hafiz Goethe Memorial in Weimar.
Contestants are invited to submit an artistic concept, including:
- a thirty-second audio clip (stereo WAV)
- an explanatory text (max. 300 words) describing the design and components of the spatial acoustics.
- a cover letter from the participant or group, including self-description and appropriate references.
Every summer since 2012, Weimar becomes a meeting point for digital avant-garde artists, culture enthusiasts and scientists. The Genius Loci Weimar festival for site-specific audio-visual art and interactive facade projections now ranks among the leading international events in this area.
