EVANESCENT CONTINENTS – Collective Listening at X Marks the Bökship
17th October 2013, 19:30-21:30
One hour of listening at 20h
Human Fiction Tartini is proud to present EVANESCENT CONTINENTS, a new project in collaboration with Shoppinghour Magazine. The project is based on an ephemeral amassing of sounds. We present the listener with a momentary evanescent continent, a shared sonic landscape bound to temporal rather than spatial existence. In this hour of collective listening you will hear new compositions from Chris Wood and Mikatsiu built from recordings submitted in a global call for sounds. These are human fictions built from the detritus of existing sounds. This first edition of Evanescent Continents takes place at X Marks the Bökship.

Shoppinghour is celebrating the launch of issue 10 Feast of Listen at the wonderful Ti Pi Tin in London, a project space dedicated to selling, supporting and promoting publications made by artists. Join us on the 9th May to grab yourself a copy and drinks, heartfelt conversation and lots of hugs.
Calling for samples and recordings responding to one of the following:
1 // humming a melody or a non-melody.
2 // the sound of an imaginary organ; not restricted to living or earthly creatures!
3 // a sonically inspired response to the following riddle:
Random, shifting, but recognisable.
What constitutes it is invisible to our eyes.
Intangible, incomplete yet indiscriminately casts a shadow.
Guaranteed to witness all and be witnessed by all.
It is applicable yet unknowable.
A common mismeasure.
What is it?
The material received will be manipulated, sampled, mixed, and collaged by a selected group of composers & sonic artists, each creating a piece for your feast of listening pleasure.
The tracks will be released by Shoppinghour Magazine, and a listening session will be hosted in London by Human Fiction Tartini.
Deadline // 1st of June 2013
Format // preferably uncompressed 44.1 kHz
Length // maximum 16 minutes
Send to // firstname.lastname@example.org
Please include your full name & the location of your recording with the submitted sonic material.
Any further questions and request for project details should be addressed to Mika Hayashi Ebbesen.
