I-Park 2016 Music Composition/Sound Art
Application Deadline: January 25, 2016
I-Park, located in rural East Haddam, CT (U.S.), has announced its 2016 multi-disciplinary artists-in-residence program. The program is open to composers and those working in the field of sound art, design, and sculpture. Other creative disciplines represented are visual arts, architecture, moving image, creative writing and landscape/garden/ecological design. Self-directed residencies are being offered from May through November 2016. Most residencies are 4-weeks in duration. International applicants are welcome.
I-Park provides comfortable, private living quarters in a renovated 1850’s era farmhouse, a private studio and a meal program.
I-Park’s music studio is outfitted with an upright piano, numerous digital keyboards, MIDI interface and synthesizer modules, basic studio and field recording equipment and a selection of obscure and specialty instruments and audio gear, including percussion.
While the typical residency revolves around studio work, those wishing to create sound installations in the landscape will have broad access to I-Park’s expansive grounds.
Work samples are evaluated through a competitive, juried process. A $30 application fee helps defray the cost of the independent selection panel. Accepted composers/sound artists are responsible for their own work materials as well as transportation to and from the area. The program is otherwise offered at no cost to invitees.
I-Park will also be hosting two Special Programs in 2016, a Composers + Musicians Collaborative Residency and a Family-Friendly Residency (an experimental program dedicated to artists with dependent children). These programs will have separate application deadlines. Visit the I-Park website atwww.i-park.org for more information on these Special Programs.
