Sonic Geography Contest

This could be an interesting project for some:
Musicworks Second Annual Electronic Music and Sonic Geography contest
Call for entries

Musicworks is holding their Second Annual Electronic Music and Sonic Geography contest. To enter the Electronic Music Contest, compose a piece in one of the following genres: Acousmatic, Audio art, Electroacoustic, Glitch, Intelligent dance music, Microsound, Noise, Turntable art, or Video music. There is no maximum length. To enter the Sonic Geography Writing Contest, write prose to describe how sound influences place. How does sound define the chosen location? Listen to your local coffee shop, grocery store, or commute to work. Choose anywhere—urban or rural, indoors or outside, busy and loud or mysteriously quiet—and literally describe what you hear. Write about language, geography, landscape, urbanization, culture, architecture or people. Maximum: 500 words. Six winners will receive cash prizes.

Deadline: May 21, 2012
