sound-art festival
20 07 18


Dear all,

for the 3rd time we will set up again a mini-festival here in Augsburg !
same festival – different concept this time

open for submissions !

line-up will consist of 10 artists
there will be 5 collaboration-sets
we will connect 2 artists for each set that haven’t played together so far
so this will be their first ever encounter and a unique happening
their aim is to work out a collaboration set for the festival in advance
this can be a new composition or an improvisation

get in contact:

– please include a short bio, artist picture and sound/video links and expected travel costs
– please tell us if you want to compose a new piece with your partner or aim to improvise
– please tell us the instruments you play
– please tell us if you use visuals
– please also state if you are a member of GEMA or any other royalty collecting organization
ATTENTION ! submissions with any missing information won’t be accepted

all experimental musical styles are welcome
exception: no harsh noise / we concentrate on more quiet music

deadline: April 1st

– we will cover travel costs and a surplus will be shared among all artists
– free food and drinks will be provided during the whole stay
– you are fine with private accommodation
– local artists: you host your (inter)national partner for up to 3 nights
– you provide an exclusive track for an online compilation until May 1st
– you are a solo artist

this is a diy festival with the aim of connecting local artists and audience to the (inter)national experimental scene. Beside the unique musical experience we want to focus on a cultural exchange.


Looking forward to your submissions !

LDX#40 (Frankfurt) erforscht seit bald zwei Jahrzehnten die musikalischen Möglichkeiten des Commodore C64 und fusionierte diese mit einer Vielzahl anderer Klangelemente.

Dazu kommen Videoarbeiten – sowohl als Liveimprovisation wie auch in Form von Studioproduktionen, gerne auch in Kollaboration mit anderen Künstlern.

LDX#40 ist auch Mitveranstalter der Konzert- und Projektreihe Xerox Exotique in Frankfurt am Main.


The phenomenon of Rovar17 (Insect17 in English) was born 31st of August 2002, what is basically Kálmán Pongrácz’s solo project, but different kinds of collaboration often occur with musicians, visual artists, performers as well as theater, so Rovar17 is a member of several bands as ParaNoiZ, Royal Hungarian Noisemakers or the Százaségő was (2013-2015).

The music is made by audio collage technique, which rejects the traditional sound system, harmony, melody, even rhythm, and creates compositions from inconsistent and untempered sounds, noises. The source is natural or electronic, But the most preferred is the inclusion of human voices.

This act has already seen more than 300 concerts and performances, and has played all across Hungary, in Belarus, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Danmark, Estonia, France, Germany, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, United Kingdom and the United States of America.

EMERGE (Augsburg) lehnt sich an die minimalistischen Traditionen des Experimentalismus und der nicht-akademischen Geräuschmusik an. Der Fokus liegt auf der Generierung von Klanggebilden, die frei interpretierbare Atmosphären an die Oberfläche holen sollen. Die Auswahl der verwendeten Klangquellen ist meist sehr eingeschränkt und die ursprünglichen Klänge selbst durch diverse Verfremdungen höchstens rudimentär erkennbar. Oft wird auch Basismaterial von diversen Künstlern/Musikern verwendet und recycelt.

Zudem betreibt EMERGE das Augsburger Label attenuation circuit und organisiert Konzerte für zumeist experimentelle Musik in Augsburg.

GENESIS (Belgrad) is experimental AV performance, based on digital decontextualized collage, which elements losing their original forms and meanings and acting independently like pure perception experience with emphasize on interaction between sound and picture.
