((audience)) seeks a special projects intern to assist with “Supply / Demand”
We are seeking one to three Special Project interns for summer 2013 to assist with our Supply Demand Initiative. Interns will be expected to meet with the directors of ((audience)) every other week for 3-4 hours. In between, this project can be done remotely, but Special Project interns are welcome to come and work at our Brooklyn location.
Supply / Demand gathers practitioners from art and industry to discuss the metamorphosis of Audio Visual Media in general and the opportunities of on-demand distribution.
While the film and music industries are constantly discussing the opportunities of new technologies, Supply/Demand aims to focus on the needs and the experiences of independent artists and musicians. Bringing together scholars, media aggregators and distributors to a table to meet with artists (musicians and composers, film makers, video artists, sound artists) Supply / Demand asks: How can artists make use of new channels of distribution? How can artists contribute to emerging protocols of distribution?
((audience)) is particularly interested in identifying actors and advancing methods to break down the barriers in streaming protocols that have emerged around “music” and “movies” in order to distribute high-quality and multi-channel audio files as streaming “video.” (That is, how do we get beyond the regime of “Netflix+Spotify”.)
Supply/Demand began in March of 2013 with three panel discussions at the Museum of Art & Design in Midtown, organized with ESP TV in conjunction with their residency there. We have the opportunity to organize two more Supply/Demand panels this summer or Fall at another location in Lower Manhattan.
If you are interested, please send an email to “firstname.lastname@example.org” with the subject line “Supply/Demand Volunteer” with a one-paragraph Statement of Interest. Resumes are welcome but not necessary. This is an unpaid internship. Students of film, video, music recording, application development, broadcast media and science-and-technology studies are all encouraged to apply.
Conceived in 2006, ((audience)) is dedicated to the advancement of aural arts by providing wide distribution and new contexts for works by emerging and established sound artists and composers. It is an unprecedented project that explores the cinema as a 21st century concert hall. For our first decade, ((audience)) will focus on the cinema as a technical and distributive platform, organizing a nomadic, biennial sound art festival in partnership with select arts organizations worldwide.
