Locus Sonus Lab: Call for Research Fellows [fr Aix]

locussonus.jpgOpen Call :: Laboratoire Locus Sonus is recruiting 3 research fellows for the academic year 2007/2008 – “Emerging Practices in Sound and Acoustics Linked to Network Technologies” :: Deadline: September 1, 2007 :: Candidates should be available for interview at the Art School in Aix-en-Provence, France on September 6, 2007.

Locus Sonus is a research group specialized in audio art (involving the participating schools: École Supérieure d’Art d’Aix-en-Provence, École Nationale Supérieure d’Art de Nice Villa Arson and the École Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Marseille)
in collaboration with CNRS/MMSH/LAMES Laboratory of the University of Provence. Locus Sonus experiments and evaluates the innovative and transdisciplinary nature of audio art forms in a lab-type context. Locus Sonus is also concerned with the communal, collective or multi-user aspects inherent to many emerging audio practices, which involve working as a group. This research concentrates on two main themes – sound in relation to space and network audio systems. The “Lab” proposes a process combining practical artistic experiment and critical evaluation within a group context.

Selection Criteria: The Locus Sonus is a post graduate programme open to highly motivated researchers and artists interested in audio practices Eligible applicants include: art school graduates or university graduates in art, music, science and technology .

Qualifications and skills: candidates should posess skills in at least two of the areas listed below :
– PureData, Max/MSP, etc. (control, synthesis, sound spatialization, etc.)
– 3D & virtual reality
– Networks (PHP, streaming, LSL, etc.)
– Systems administration & unix/linux
– Electronics (sensors, interactivity, etc.)
– Design & construction, (installation)

Terms and Conditions: Successful candidates will receive a monthly salary and will be expected to take part in teaching activities in the 3 art schools (seminars, presentations and workshops..)

Research Programme 2007/2008: Audio ‘Extranauts’. (Contractual agreement between the CNRS & French Ministry of Culture) – “Emerging Practices in Sound and Acoustics Linked to Network Technologies”

Laboratoire Locus Sonus
Laboratoire de sociologie LAMES-UMR 6127

The research programme includes multiple projects, proposed and developed by Locus Sonus in collaboration with the LAMES
Research group. These projects result from a continual process of artistic experimentation concerning interaction between physical and virtual acoustics, while taking into account social and geographical factors. The term “extranaut” is used here to designate the behaviour of individuals or communities who navigate between online and offline spaces or activities.

Locus Sonus Research Lab: Current Fields of Research:

– The permutations of network-based projects in physical space. (virtual worlds, online performance, installations)
– The emergence and and significance of renewable media (flux) as artistic forms.
– The impact of mobile technologies on art.

Documents to be downloaded:
– Audio Extranauts program (in French)
