Call for Works / Competition
Hannover, Germany; May, 2012
Media Arts Festivals are rapidly becoming an integral part of the 
cultural landscape -- with music often reduced to a secondary function 
despite its near ubiquitous inclusion in most forms of media art. In its 
initial 2012 iteration, the biennial "Visions" Festival engages this 
discrepancy by presenting leading international artists in Germany in a 
forum that also addresses the theoretical foundations of the 
relationship between music and media arts. The festival aims to offer 
both artists and art theorists a platform for the presentation of their 
works, ideas and use of new technologies to the general public. 
"Visions" also offers young composers an open forum in which they can 
engage with new media art forms and, in particular, with the interaction 
of music with the visual arts. The 2012 "Visions" Festival is therefore 
calling for submissions of works in Music and Media Arts which feature 
video and music: video art, visual music, animation, contemporary or 
electronic music with visual components, experimental video.

The works shall feature the combination of sound and moving images or 
visual displays in a contemporary or experimental aesthetic direction.
