Call for participation in:

Sonic Tags Workshop
10-14 October 2005,

As an offshoot of the Re:Activism conference, Sonic Tags workshop 
aims to do a bit of city-programming, filling dedicated parts of 
Budapest with unusual sounds, words, atmospheres, through creating 
event triggered, localized broadcasts of poetic instances.

The one-week workshop is planned to embrace both
- hands on prototyping of simple broadcast technologies, as well as
- developing the poetics of micro-broadcasts, defining and recording 
event triggered messages, ending with the results broadcasted over 
special parts of the city presented at the conference and exhibited 
in a gallery space.

Special guest participants include Peter Finch, Welsh sound poet; 
Lajos Parti Nagy, hungarian poet and writer; Adam Hyde, new media 
artist from New Zeland; Tetsuo Kogawa, radio artist via livestream 
from Tokyo and others...
