Microsound – Diapason Gallery for Sound
Deadline : August 10th 2009
Diapason Gallery for Sound is dedicating the month of October to the exploration of the idea “Microsound”, a technical term and also a musical genre. In honor of the 10th anniversary of the .microsound.org mailing list (founded by Kim Cascone) Diapason will present multi-channel installations, sound objects, performances, lectures, texts and other media in an effort to develop a survey on Microsound from today’s post-digital perspective.
Microsound is a term that encompasses explorations of sound on a time scale “shorter than musical notes”. It includes subgenres such as Glitch music, granular synthesis, Lowercase sound, etc.
Since 2001, Diapason has been devoted to the presentation of sound art. The gallery, located in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, NY, contains two listening environments with state-of-the-art multi-channel sound systems: the “lounge” contains a 12 channel sound system placed asymmetrically around the space and the “gallery” is a focused listening environment with a high quality 8 channel system. Installation and performance proposals that consider site and spatialization as an important parameter will be favored.
