UNTIL Magazine issue 12: Mixtape Soundscape

UNTIL Magazine issue 12: Mixtape Soundscape


Deadline to Submit: 15 July 2022

There are a number of definitions of Soundscape… most include “the perception of the sounds by listeners”.

The soundscape of Victoria is often presented as waves on a rocky beach, carillon bells, carriage horse hooves, ship’s horns, bagpipes or fiddles in the inner harbour and the many sounds of the Victoria Day Parade. These are some sounds in the public perception of Victoria’s soundscape.

For UNTIL 12: MIXTAPE SOUNDSCAPE we would like work based on a soundscape that resonates with you.

What is your perception of the sounds around you?
Does what you hear affect your sense of place?
Can the soundscape set a rhythm for you?
Are there sounds that define a special or personal environment?
How can your perception of a soundscape shape your creative output?

We welcome works that are inspired by intimate snippets of sound, or by an all out acoustic onslaught. All work submitted must be original in concept (we recognize that sampling has long played an important role in Soundscapes and so if your work does make use of samples, please clearly identify them with your artist statement).

About the Guest-Editor:
Spending a large part of his childhood playing with reel-to-reel tape and listening to shortwave radio, it was inevitable that sound creation and manipulation would be part of Michael Benneyworth’s multidisciplinary artistic practice. His sound art works are concerned with the sounds themselves: ways of creating sounds, how sounds inform space and assembled sound collages rather than song forms.

Past works include the construction of acoustic devices ranging from small instruments to large sculptural sound installations. Michael’s current projects are focused on the recording and performance of generative and ambient electronic music. He has performed solo and with a number of experimental music groups, recently joined the board of the Garden City Electronic Music Society and has been a member of the Unity Drummers and Singers since 2005.
