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 have received previous awards.
