MUSICIANS AND SOUND ARTISTS APPLY FOR 4CULTURE AND KING COUNTY METRO TRANSIT PUBLIC ART PROJECT

4Culture

4Culture & King County Metro Transit seek an artist to create audio work that will explore and enhance the experience along a new rapid transit bus corridor. The selected artist/artist team will survey the first route of King County’s new rapid transit service, the RapidRide A Line which will span Pacific Highway South from Tukwila to Federal Way, and create a route-specific soundscape. Intended to create a sonic sightseeing experience that will daylight stories of place, the artist-created soundscape may include route-sourced and route-inspired words, found sounds, and/or digitally created sound and music. A variety of approaches are possible; anchoring in place will be central. The soundscape will be accessible as downloadable audio files through the 4Culture website – while onboard WiFi-enabled RapidRide buses and through broad internet access – and through Listen4Culture, an audio cell phone program. This is a great opportunity for an artist with experience and continued interest in creating audio work, and for self-selecting inter-disciplinary teams including sound artists, literary artists, spoken word artists, and musicians to collaborate with one another and with community members to reflect varied interests and expertise in a layered, audio-exploration of place. Open to professional artists and artist teams with a primary member living in WA, OR & BC. The deadline to apply is March 22. For more information, follow the above link.
