As part of its 2016 event, the Genius Loci Weimar Festival is hosting the Spatial Audio Competition for innovative design in the form of an acoustic audio production.
All interested artists can submit their audio concept ideas for the spatial audio installation at the Hafiz Goethe Memorial in Weimar.
The winning project will be realized with a prize money of 5,000 Euro and presented during the Genius Loci Weimar Festival from 12 to 14 August 2016 in Germany.
The competition is open to all individuals — enthusiasts, students, amateurs and professionals — and groups.
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.
