Sound&Visions är ett audiovisuellt samskapande mellan studenter på Kungl. Musikhögskolan (KMH) och studenter från Visuell Kommunikation på Beckmans designhögskola.

Fram tills 31 oktober kan studenter på KMH ansöka om att delta som bl.a. musiker, ljudskapare, kompositör eller musikskapare. Du som söker vill utforska hur ditt konstnärliga skapande kan utvecklas i mötet med en annan konstnärlig disciplin. Du är öppen och nyfiken samtidigt som du kan kommunicera dina tankar och visioner på ett tydligt sätt.

5 studenter från KMH väljs ut bland de sökande. Vi tittar främst på hur du beskriver ditt musikskapande i relation till projektbeskrivningen, hur du ser på samskapande projekt och vad du vill lära dig. Vi kommer också främja en bredd i uttryck och inriktning.

KMH-studenterna blir sedan matchade med studenter på Visuell Kommunikation som i slutet på mars 2023 läser kursen Rörlig Grafik och Bild. Under kursen arbetar ni tillsammans, och resultat blir ett audiovisuellt verk samt en gemensam slutpresentation där verken visas upp inför publik.

Ansök till årets open call!

Sound&Visions is an audiovisual co-creation between students at Kungl. Musikhögskolan (KMH) and the Visual Communication programme at Beckmans College of Design.

Until the 31st of October, students at KMH can apply as a musician, composer, audio artist, music creator, et.al. As an applicant, you are interested in exploring how your artistic practice can develop in the meeting with another artistic discipline. You are open-minded and curious while also able to communicate your thoughts and visions clearly.

5 students from KMH will be selected from the applicants. We will primarily consider how you describe your creative musical practice in relation to this project’s description, how you view co-creative projects and what you want to learn during the project. We will also promote a diversity of artistic expressions and specialities.

The students at KMH will be matched with students at the Visual Communication studying Rörlig Grafik och Bild from end of March 2023. During the course, you will work together, as the course will result in an audiovisual artwork and a joint final presentation where all the work will be presented in front of an audience.

FAQ

Does the audio file need to be a finished work?

The audio file you send in with the application is meant to showcase your idea and musical style. It does not need to be the final version and you are encouraged to keep working on your music if you are selected for the project, to make it work ready for the students at Beckmans College of Design.

How much time will I need to spend on the project?

After you have been selected to participate in this project, we expect you to take part in a few meetings before, during and after the project in order to get to know the other participants and the staff from Beckmans College of Design. In total, you are estimated to spend around 8 hours over the course of four months, between December 2022 and April 2023. This does not include the time you spend on working on your own music for this project.

Can I use the visuals on my own after the project is done?

Yes, if you want to use the visuals in another setting after this project, we encourage you to keep in touch with your group of students at Beckmans College of Design to explore future collaborations and opportunities with your project.

Can I perform live to a pre-recorded audio file?

This project will look for applications which can be played back without the need for live musicians. However, if you have a vision or idea of how to do that while also meeting the needs from the students at Beckmans College of Design who needs to have an audio file to play together with the visual project, then you are welcome to describe that idea in your application. However, to ensure that your work can be performed even if you get sick or something else happens, we want you to also be prepared with a finished audio file when you first meet your project group in February 2023.

I'm not a performer or music producer, can I still apply for this project?

Yes! We encourage everyone from KMH to apply with a project idea, regardless of your musical background. You will be considered a project leader for your application, which means that you can include as many musicians and people as you need in the music you apply with. As long as you have the rights to use the final audio for this project, we welcome every style of music and background in the application.
