Noise Intercepted Collaborators
Hethre Contant - Independent Scholar
Why do I want to participate?
I am the education director of the Megapolis Sound Art and radio festival. This year we will take place in New York City. Our theme comes from Cage's advice: “What I’m proposing, to myself and other people, is what I often call the tourist attitude – that you act as though you’ve never been there before. So that you’re not supposed to know anything about it.” I think your project totally addresses his prompt. Noise Intercepted would be an excellent way for me to get out of the organizer mode and into the proper artistic spirit for our festival. I have participated in a bunch of Hackathons before, but they have never been too great for the "sound artist." This project looks sorta like a hackathon, but better, because it is tailored to the acoustic arts. Finally, although it hasn't been announced yet, I'll be doing a sound art residency with some people that you probably know later this year. Here's the megapolis website: http://megapolisfestival.org/blargh/ And I love the noisey background on your website.
