Metanast – open call for works 2015

December 5, 2014 in All Opportunities, Composers by newmusicscotland

Metanast is an artists’ collective specialising in electroacoustic composition, live electronics performance, and creative coding. The collective supports links between academic and the wider sonic arts culture through concerts which are friendly and inclusive for all artists who wish to showcase their work irrespective of their background. Metanast promotes collaboration, interdisciplinarity, and experimentation with new and established technologies, and facilitates discourse between academic researchers and independently practising artists.

Our first series of events was hosted at diverse venues, such as the gritty Bassment nightclub in Ancoats, Northern Quarter’s meditative Nexus Art Cafe, and the state of the art Digital Performance Lab at MediaCityUK. For 2015, Metanast is extremely proud to collaborate with two prestigious Greater Manchester academic institutions, the University of Salford and the University of Manchester, curating concerts as part of their respective Salford Sonic Fusion Festival and MANTIS festival linking academic work to the wider sonic arts culture.

Each festival will have a distinct character and theme, and we have released two separate open calls for artistic submissions. Please follow link for more details and related material.
