OPEN CALL: Experimental Sound Studio Artists Residency Program

Mar 12, 2008 5:46 am
Experimental Sound Studio (ESS) will offer four 30- to 40-hour residencies through the 2008 Artists Residency Program (ARP). At least three of these residencies are for Chicago area artists, and one residency will be open to non-Chicago US artists. Each residency includes access to the ESS recording facilities with engineering assistance. The ESS recording facilities include:
• one 600-sq-ft live recording studio with 16-track ProTools system, baby grand piano, isolation booth;
• one soundtrack, mixing, and mastering studio with ProTools and MAX-MSP/Jitter;
• multi-channel playback and sync-to-image capabilities;
• various digital and analog processors and recorders.

The purpose of the ARP is to facilitate the production of finished works that will be presented to the public, so please propose only projects that can be completed within the allotted time frame. An ESS Artist Residency does not carry with it any commitment from ESS to present the finished work, but we often do work with ARP artists in facilitating presentation. Application deadline: April 5, 2008
