Music to heal, sounds to celebrate, to dance, grieve, commune, evoke frenzy, to initiate, to journey, and music as a tool for exploring and knowing the self.
This month we are reigniting our musical fires by asking questions like: What is music, Where does it exist, what does it represent? We want to dig around in the emotional aspects of music and sound, how it imprints upon and penetrates our being. We want to investigate movement in relationship to sound, in terms of bodily motion, travel, emotional movement, dance.
Why do organised noises intrigue us so? Is it because at the ground level, we are creating order from chaos using building blocks that are neither speakable nor tangible? Music and movement are creative forms that are most representative of the universe, laden with patterns and processes, full of language, yet not spoken or understood in the conventional sense.
WE ARE LOOKING FOR:
Visual pieces, illustration, painting, drawings, animation, music, sound, video, multimedia, films, installations, movement, dance, noise, soundscapes, songs, collaboration, creative writing, poetry and short articles < 600 words.
We are not necessarily looking for sound-based contributions, although we will publish some music and sound. We are also looking for work in other mediums that are somehow inspired by or linked to music, how is music inspiring your visual art? How can we bring together music with other forms?
