Objec­tives of the Sonic Arts Award:

SoundEx and moor­room cul­tural asso­ci­a­tion are pleased to present the sec­ond edi­tion of the Sonic Arts Award (SAAW). The Sonic Arts Award is aimed at the pro­duc­tion and pro­mo­tion of sonic arts at an inter­na­tional level. SAAW will assign a cash prize to the win­ning project of each of the four cat­e­gories. The fratto9 record label will select 1 (one) artist from among all par­tic­i­pants for the pub­li­ca­tion of a CD as part of its cat­a­logue. Win­ners will be noti­fied in May 2014.

SAAW is made up of four categories:

1) Sound Art - Sound instal­la­tion works, includ­ing multi-channel. The work must have been realised in the three year period prior to the announce­ment of the com­pe­ti­tion. The work may have been shown in a gallery [in the case of the gallery own­ing the rights to, or hav­ing exclu­sive rights to the work, the artist must obtain a waiver from the gallery for the exhi­bi­tion]. Works that have pre­vi­ously won awards are not eli­gi­ble for entry.

2) Sonic Research – Works cor­re­spond­ing with an idea of exploratory music and research that explores new codes of com­po­si­tion and inno­v­a­tive processes in the pro­duc­tion of con­tem­po­rary sound (elec­tronic music, elec­troa­coustic music, acous­matic, dig­i­tal music, musique con­crète, exper­i­men­tal music, impro­vi­sa­tion, glitch, ambi­ent, exploratory music).

Tracks must not exceed 20 min­utes in length.

Tracks must not have received pre­vi­ous awards.

Tracks pub­lished on CD/DVD, vinyl or net label are allowed.

This sec­tion includes mul­ti­chan­nel works up to a max­i­mum of 8 channels.

3) Sound­scapes – sound­scapes are sound com­po­si­tions that use sound record­ings cre­ated through the edit­ing, mix­ing and pro­cess­ing of the sound source.

Tracks must not exceed 30 min­utes in length.

Works that have pre­vi­ously won awards are not eli­gi­ble for entry.

Tracks pub­lished on CD/DVD, vinyl or net label are allowed.

This sec­tion includes mul­ti­chan­nel works up to a max­i­mum of 8 channels.

4) Dig­i­tal Art – This sec­tion includes all works of Inter­ac­tive Art that, through the active par­tic­i­pa­tion of the gen­eral pub­lic or per­for­mance intro­duce inno­v­a­tive ele­ments in the field of sound exper­i­men­ta­tion. Exam­ples include works of Net Art based on sound research that elab­o­rates the tra­di­tional codes of the Inter­net using new pro­gram­ming lan­guages and soft­ware. Works must demon­strate an artistic/aesthetic approach able to develop diverse links between mul­ti­ple con­tent. Musi­cal appli­ca­tions for tablet and smart­phone are allowed.
