SPRANG at soft galleri, Oslo



Opening Thursday 27. November at 6PM.
Exhibition period: 27. November 2014 – 1. January 2015.

Artists Hilde Hauan Johnsen and Maia Urstad has for several years been working on joint projects and exhibitions where they use new technologies as artistic language and tools. This is also the case in the installation ESCAPADE; consisting of sound and fiber optics.

The starting point for the work is taken from ancient knowledge. In the exhibition, the ancient textile handcraft technique, “warp”, meets sonic phenomenons such as overtones, sound waves and vibration based on Pythagoras’ theories of acoustics and geometry.

The exhibition is supported by Kulturrådet, Kunst og Ny teknologi, BEK-Bergen senter for Elektronisk Kunst, KHiB and Atelier Nord.

Call for Participants for Spatial Audio Questionnaire


Justin Mathew is investigating the use of audio spatialization in various projects to gain a broader understanding of how its techniques are implemented. To do this, he is conducting an online questionnaire to gather more insight. He asks for participants who are composers, sound designers, audio engineers, musicians, and artists who spatialize audio in their projects (i.e. compositions, live performances, studio recording/mixing, installations, interactive systems, etc.) to take part in our questionnaire.

The questionnaire will take approximately 20-30 minutes, but can be paused and continued at any time. Response can also be edited until 31-December-2014.

The results of this study will hopefully be used to design new interactive and visualization interfaces for audio spatialization.

Thank you for you time.

Berlin almanac on contemporary musical instruments -- Call for contributions


Deadline: 15.11.2014

The 3DMIN project invites authors to contribute to a collection on contemporary musical instruments and related musical practice.
The almanac’s intention is to collect and present as many as possible viewpoints upon the field of contemporary musical instruments.
The pieces forming the alamanc are intended to explain aspects of contemporary musical instruments by forming a body of information of which the reader gains insights and new impulses for her artistic or scientific work.
Questions to be addressed are e.g.

  • What is a contemporary musical instrument?
  • What do you concider as important aspects of a contemporary musical instrument?
  • How does your professional perspective shape your viewpoint on contemporary musical instruments?
  • How does a contemporary musical instrument shape musical practice?

Each author of an essay is asked to select one of the many aspects around contemporary musical instruments and formulate a short piece around it. A collection of subjects for inspiration can be found here. The form of the pieces is, within the boundaries described below, left to the authors.

Submitted pieces will be reviewed, edited and eventually published on a dedicated webpage. Depending on the amount and quality of the submitted material, a printed publication of selected works is planned.

Suggested form of contributions

Submitted pieces should be compiled in a form the single authors finds suitable for the chosen theme. Examples for such a form are: a short essay (about 500 words), a photo collection, a figure, a table, a javascript element, or a combination of them. Sound and video material is highly appreciated. The amount of displayed information should not exceed the size of an A4/letter-format page.
The submission language is english.


Please inform your intention to contribute with information on the subject(s) you intend to cover as soon as possible to

Final contributions should be sent to the same address.



Open Call - Connecting Cities


Connecting Cities is a network of worldwide cultural institutions. The aim is to foster the circulation of artistic and cultural contents throughout European and worldwide urban screens and media facades.
With the curatorial theme of INVISIBLE and VISIBLE Cities 2015 we want to develop an awareness on the changes which are hardly visible to the eyes and are underlying our nowadays cities. Our today’s modern cities are hybrid structures in which technology is invisibly interweaved in the perception layers of our everyday lives.
We call for artistic scenarios to visualise invisible, embedded ‘smart’ urban infrastructures and analyse their impact on the technological transformation of our society in a broad and public discourse.
