Open Call: Music for NEXT Mobile Sound System

Are you active in experimental music, sonic art or sound-system culture and would like to hear your work on a public mobile sound system during NEXT Festival?

NEXT Festival for contemporary music is announcing an open call for live musical artworks or pre-recorded electro-acoustic compositions combining experimental musical production and sonic intervention in the public space.

Three selected works will be presented live as a concert or recording on a mobile sound system parked in several public sites around Bratislava during the festival on 22–28 NOV 21.

The works will be selected by the festival’s curatorial jury. Three selected compositions and/or concert performances will receive a prize of 500 EUR. The jury reserves the right to select no artwork unless appropriate standards of artistic quality are met.

Your application should include an at least 5-10 minute musical/sonic sample related to the final artwork (not the author’s previous work), a brief concept description, and a short author’s bio. The final work should be 18-30 minutes in length.

Fill in the application and submit your sample here.

Submissions deadline: 20 OCT 21
Results announced: 25 OCT 21
Presentation of artworks in selected public sites: 22–28 NOV 21
