Call for Works

Noisefloor 2018: Call for works (NOW CLOSED)

We are currently working through the submissions and will update with a schedule in the near future

We are delighted to announce the return of the Noisefloor festival. Noisefloor is an experimental sound and image festival showcasing the work of local, national and international artists.

Concerts and screenings will take place during the period 7th – 11th May 2018. This year we will also be hosting 20-minute paper sessions for composers and artists to discuss their work. The diverse nature of the festival will provide opportunities for artists to explore the fluidity between the five themed concerts. The Noisefloor festival would like to invite submissions for the following events:

  • Fixed acousmatic (non-AV) concert – curated by Doug Rouxel
