> ==============
> Call for participation - Sound &/or Text for installation  
> 'TheROOM' (a part of SOUNDLEAK project)
>
> The upcoming installation 'TheROOM', a part of 'SOUNDLEAK' project,  
> will open in Wels, Austria on April 9, 2009.
> As a part of the ROOM feature, you are invited to participate with  
> 'sounds of your room & neighbors/neighborhood'.
> More details below;
>
> ===============
> What:
> 'TheROOM' is a study of 'hearing through the walls, partitions, and  
> visually blocked area' by Keiko Uenishi (o.blaat).
> It is a simulation of your neighbor. Any kind of neighbor: next  
> door, any home on the street you'd walk by, the office room next to  
> you, etc.
> We hear sounds all the time through visual partitions beyond which  
> we tend to believe 'the separate space there.' However, aurally  
> speaking, the space is not easily divided with clear lines.  
> Complexity resides in the overlaps. The overlaps are the  
> intersections of aural arena, and the region of ambiguity.
> There are many questions on 'the region' and our reactions towards  
> the 'bleeding' (things not fitting in the visual boundaries.)
> What is happening in there? What are we sharing? - though we seem to  
> make attempts to block anything 'not matching' with the visual  
> boundaries? Have amendments on city's zoning laws affected our  
> hearing and sense of sharing with neighbors?
> Are we hearing? Do we know our neighbors?
>
> *** 'TheROOM' is a part of SOUNDLEAK project. Another part,  
> 'NowPlaying' is tentatively scheduled to debut in an abbreviated  
> scale at Saturn Elektronik Store in Linz, Austria on April 7, 2009.
>
> ============
> When/Where:

>
> Text regarding...
> • Hearing sounds from neighbors &/or anything outside your room/house

> also through earbuds, headsets, etc.)
>
> ---------------------------
> IMPORTANT NOTES:
> • The sound file(s) should be able to be played on iTunes.
> • Sound quality is not the most important factor. (mono, low-bit  
> recording is completely fine!)
> • Be aware that the submitted sounds are to be played from 'inside'  
> of TheROOM structure, and visitors will only hear the sounds from  
> outside. But don't be discouraged to submit anything including 'tiny  
> sounds' &/or super high or low frequencies - as it is a part of  
> 'listening situation' where _not_all_ sounds are audible. And also  
> 'what is audible', is really varied depending on the person.
> • If you can only record into cassette tapes, let me know. If it's  
> submitted early enough, I can record into a digital format.
> • Please include your name and contact (E-address. Web url too - if  
> any. But no bios please.)
> • Indicate a specific name you'd like to appear. (e.g. use 'artist's  
> moniker - if you prefer...) All names will be credited on the  
> program for 'TheROOM'.
> • Please be encouraged to choose free content licensing such as CC- 
> BY, CC-BY-SA, or public domain. (Indicate your choice! If not  
> elected, it will be treated as CC-BY-SA.)
> CC license info >> http://creativecommons.org/about/licenses/
> • The files will be compiled as a playlist, and also listenable via  
> blip.fm. (link will be announced later this month.)
>
> -------------------------
> Submission info:
>
> Electronic submission (preferred)
> • Drop file(s) at http://dropbox.yousendit.com/picnic939068
> (If it has multiple files (audio + text), make sure to put them in  
> one folder, and zip it before dropping. Do not send files separately  
> - which is to cause 'orphaned/unidentified' files.
