The sound:frame festival 2013, entitled «collective», will deal with networks, artist collectives, interdisciplinary teamwork, and international collaborations. Taking the «collective» as this year’s key subject is, in some respect, a continuation of the 2012 festival focus, «substructions».
Cooperation, collectively realized visions, and collaborative work in a collective are important components of the substructure of creative production. Based on this concept, the collective is significant especially in the context of sound:frame and its international community, and shall therefore be examined more closely in 2013. sound:frame sees itself as a collective which works and acts both as a compact team and as a global community and platform. Audiovisual artists generally work in collective productions, be it in the shape of live performances or installations. In this discipline solo artists are a rare exception. Visual artists work with musicians and artists from other areas; VJs give joint performances with DJs; and then again interior architects, graphic designers as well as technicians and programmers are all part of collectives. The collective is inherent in any audiovisual and intercreative productive process.
AV means COLLECTIVE.
