On Record / Call Out for Artists

We are inviting artists who make audio and performance work to contribute to our project, ‘On Record’ a project commissioned for Cardiff Contemporary Festival, taking place between 27th October and 2nd November 2014.

We would like artists to be involved in the project through commissions for new work and the inclusion of existing works by artists who use analogue processes to make or present their work. Therefore, we are looking to include sound pieces recorded on vinyl or audiotape and live performances of works that experiment with a DIY approach to compilation, words, collage and sampling.

There is potential for artists to contribute in one or more aspects of the project. The exhibition venue will be a centrally located shop space in Cardiff that will be able to accommodate both private and shared listening. 

We are offering a fee of £300 to commission new work. There will be additional fees available to present existing works.

If you’re interested in being part of this project, please email Cinzia and Freya at onrecordproject@gmail.com by Friday 22nd August 2014. Please include:

·   A link to your webpage.

·   Up to three audio files in mp3 format - five minutes maximum length.

·   A short statement about your practice.

Please feel free to get in touch with any questions.

Thanks, we’re looking forward to hearing from you.
