Call for Works

*Deadline: 5 November 2010 (22:00 CET)*

In connection with NIME 2011 (New Interfaces for Musical Expression) an exhibition on sonic interaction design will be curated in collaboration with the EU COST IC0601 Action on Sonic Interaction Design (SID). For the exhibition we are looking for works using sonic interaction within arts, music and design as well as examples of sonification for research and artistic purposes. The exhibition will take place at the Norwegian Museum of Science, Technology and Medicine and run for three months over the summer 2011 (opening 29th May ’11). We also aim to include works in public spaces to be presented at various locations in Oslo (possibly) for a shorter duration in parallel with NIME.

This is a curated exhibition, and there is a possibility for funding and assistance to be provided for selected artists. Note that there is an early deadline for submissions within this category (5 November). Further enquiries concerning the SID exhibition should be addressed to the curators:

You can find further information (photos and video) of the various locations (only a selection is shown below) within the museum that can be used for the SID exhibition  at
