GROUND ZERO: TRANSITORY AUDIO ARCHIVE
>OPEN CALL FOR AUDIO WORKS
For the context of the exhibition "Ground Zero" scheduled to open on August
16th at 129 Lafayette street, Nomads and Residents will provide a listening
station for audio pieces. Nomads and Residents is making an open,
international call via email to invite you to send us CDs containing one
track of an audio work for inclusion in the exhibition. We only ask for a
single track, not necessarily entire works, and the duration of the track
should be determined by the CD itself, from 1 second to maximum 74 Minutes.
We also ask that you send only your own work.
This audio platform does not have an overall subject or theme. The
temporary archive will be created exclusively through the open call and
will not be edited or curated. It will be made available for the
exhibition's audience to browse through and listen to at their own
leisure. The archive will be displayed within Heimo Lattner's and Ruthard
Miksch's "Collective Dwelling Unit".
The format of "Transitory Audio Archive" is an extension of Nomads and
Residents' interest in creating temporary situations and networks for the
exchange of resources, ideas and information. It is a continuation of a
previous transitory archive made up of international art publications
assembled as part of the "Lecture Lounge Vol. I" day of events held at the
Clocktower Gallery NY in the Winter of 2001. More information on this
project is available @ http://www.lecture-lounge.net/
>INSTRUCTIONS FOR MAKING SUBMISSIONS

the utmost precaution to protect the CD from loss or damage, however we can
