The Genius Loci Weimar Festival, an annual celebration that brings buildings and structures to life with multimedia facade projections and audiovisual performances, is running a spatial audio competition until 13 April. The Festival is seeking a project that focuses on the concept of genius loci, an idea from Roman religion that is defined as “the distinctive atmosphere or pervading spirit of a place.” To enter, you must register on their website and submit an artistic 30-second spatial audio concept that focuses on the spirit of the Hafiz Goethe Memorial with respect to its architecture and historical events and without using clichés or “careless historical retelling.”
The Festival will take submissions until 23:59 CET on 13 April. If selected, you will receive a 5,000 Euro commission to finish a 10-15 minute production that will be performed during the festival on 12-14 August 2016.
