Sound of Ebb


Submit a Sound!

Sound of Ebb is an open source sound series that calls for reflection on the global crisis by sound artists and artists working with sound to respond to the question:

What is the sound of Recession?

Artists are asked to create a work or sound recording that responds to the current economic, social and political climate. Pieces can be field recordings, compositions, radio plays, soundscapes, or even songs and pieces of music.. etc. They can be conceptual, personal, critical, creative or interpretive.

A moment of recession remarks a deceleration and slowing down – opening up to a space for reflection. When a tide recedes into a breathe of idleness, it leaves a moment for contemplation and listening to the sounds of the Self, of Others and the Environment. In a state of lull is there opportunity forge new values, forms of solidarity, closer familial ties, and explore healthier modes of consumption? Is there value within a moment of quietude and reflection to explore new possibilities for the future?

Sound of Ebb is an open project for contribution and interpretation. All works will be uploaded to online for free listening and sharing. Selected submissions will be exhibited and distributed in a free downloadable compilation by LOUDSPKR and Sound and Music.
