Open call for River Shannon Soundwalk *Extended Deadline*

*Deadline extended to 18th April 2022*

ISSTA is delighted to partner with ICMC 2022 to create a new digital soundwalk at Limerick’s River Shannon. The soundwalk will embed music and sound on a mobile tour of the riverside, attempting to spatially connect the sonic practices of ICMC with the conference’s location at the River Shannon and its surrounding environments.

ISSTA invites artists to populate this new digital soundwalk with audio artworks (music, sound art, radiophonic).  Submissions can be old or new, but should respond to and explore our theme: ‘spatial relationships – with (and within).  The selected audio works will be featured in an interactive geolocated exhibition using Echoes as part of the ICMC programme.
