I-Park 2015 Music Composition/Sound Art Program
Application Deadline: February 2, 2015
I-Park, located in rural East Haddam, CT (U.S.), announces its 2015 multi-disciplinary artists-in-residence program. The program is open to composers and those working in the field of sound art/design/sculpture. Other creative disciplines represented: visual arts, architecture, moving image, creative writing and landscape/garden/ecological design. Self-directed residencies will be offered from May through November, 2015. Most residencies are 4-weeks in duration. International applicants are welcome.
I-Park provides comfortable, private living quarters in an 1850’s era farmhouse, a private studio space and a food program.
I-Park’s music studio is outfitted with an upright piano, numerous digital keyboards, MIDI interface and synthesizer modules, basic studio and field recording equipment and a selection of obscure/specialty, including percussion, instruments and audio gear.
While the typical residency revolves around studio work, those wishing to create sound installations in nature will have broad access to I-Park’s expansive grounds.
Work samples are evaluated through a competitive, juried process. A $30 application fee helps defray the cost of the independent selection panel. Accepted composers/sound artists are responsible for their own work materials as well as transportation to and from the area. The program is otherwise offered at no cost to invitees.
There will also be a special Environmental Art Program in September, 2015 (residency and exhibition) for which proposals for sound sculptures/installations will be solicited – details to be announced.
