Missouri Experimental Sonic Arts Festival

MOXsonic (March 8-9, 2019) is two days of concerts, research presentations, workshops, installations, and conversations. Our goal is that academic and independent artists and groups, music/sonic technologists, and more will gather for an exploration of sonic possibilities.

We welcome a wide variety of applications and believe that a diversity of voices, perspectives, gender, genre, age, and identity will make for a positive and strong event. Make no presumptions as to what projects we will select: surprise us with your submission.

MOXsonic focuses on programming events with experimental music involving live performance with interactive technologies. Improvisers, composer/performers, and teams of composers and performers are especially welcome: as are performers who would like to present new or recent works. MOXsonic is interested in a variety of musics, installations, and research presentations. In addition to our daytime activities, there is a nightlife component where musicians can stretch out and explore longer forms while other participants socialize.

Individual and group submissions are expected to be mostly self-contained: we supply the space(s), technical crew, the organization, the community, and PR. Participants supply all else: i.e., people who do it all themselves or people who propose teams and collaborative efforts. For the current MOXsonic adventure, we are unfortunately unable to provide travel funding or honoraria, but we guarantee that a good time will be had by all. We are happy to help with language and/or letters of commitment for grant applications to support your participation. A list of what we are able to supply—along with details of our performance and installation spaces—is available at moxsonic.org/tech-and-space

There are no application fees or registration fees, and there will be no ticket fees for all events.

You are welcome to submit proposals in multiple categories, but please, only one submission per category. Each submission must be on a separate form.

Deadline, Monday, October 28, 2018, midnight CST

Featured artists for 2019, Miller Puckette and Shia-uen Ding!
