Seeking soundscapes for Milan
Calling musicians, DJs and sound artists: Dezeen teams up with Jawbone and industrial designer Yves Behar in Milan this April to curate the audio for JamScape, a ground-breaking installation and lounge, which takes place in the Ventura Lambrate district in Milan from Monday 11 April to Sunday 17 April 2011.
We're looking for original tracks that are soothing, inspiring, uplifting, provocative... or anything that would appeal to design-savvy visitors to the space.
Using Jawbone’s bold new JAMBOX wireless speakers as building blocks, JamScape will be a truly global collaborative audio experience developed around the idea of liberating and unleashing sound. The installation will foster creative partnerships with a cadre of audio artists and enable them to express their perceptions and ideas of music, improvisation, jamming, and social sound.
Yves Behar said: "We're looking for cool ambient music that will be used to create a sound journey to be experienced by the visitors walking around the JamScape installation. The opportunity is to create different sounds for each of the 5 JamScapes to craft a unique series of soundscapes as visitors walk around the exhibit.”
Each track and artist will be credited at the space, as well as on Dezeen. Your track may also be used, with full credit and link, on a Dezeen movie about Milan. The first 20 soundscapes submitted and selected to be part of JamScape will win a Jambox.
