Call for SOUNDS
November 22, 2016
BC Studies: The British Columbian Quarterly is seeking sound clips, soundscapes, or other types of audio accompanied by a written component (article, essay, poem, story, etc.). Contributions will be peer reviewed and published online and in print. They should engage with sound studies, anthropology of sound, musicology, ethnomusicology, urban studies, storytelling, communication or any other disciplines / approaches that engage with the topic of sound. Projects may be approached from various perspectives (environmental activism, phenomenological, historical, sociological, political, ethical, etc.) and through various forms (narrative, storytelling, sounds of the environment, noises, urban sounds, etc.). Sound clips may be submitted in raw and/or processed form(s). Yet, they should all be connected to sonic expressions, phenomenon and explorations in/about/of British Columbia.
Sonic components (wav. format) will be published on our Soundcloud page. Written components (max 1500-2000 words) should relate directly to the soundscape(s) / sound clip(s) submitted.
Please send questions and submissions to Dr. Alexandrine Boudreault-Fournier (firstname.lastname@example.org).
A soundscape can be any sound, or sound composites heard in an environment. It can also refer to a sonic/musical composition that can be site-specific, and/or related to a particular question, issue, intention, creative process, etc.
