Quantum Music > Beyond Quantum Music Open Call

Beyond Quantum Music is an international project co-financed by Creative Europe that aims to explore connections between visual arts, music, and quantum physics by means of artistic experimentation, resulting in live performances and other types of interactions with European audiences. The project presents quantum physics and the quantum world to a wider audience and contributes to the creation of a new music genre: Quantum Music.

This open call is for adventurous artists who want to explore the deeper meaning of the universe through the quantum physics phenomena. It welcomes submissions for any kind of digital art, sound installations, video works, as well as music that connects analogue and/or acoustic instruments with digital ones, the old and new sound worlds. The organisers are looking for artistic creations with immersive, audio-visual focus, exploring the possibilities of the quantum synthesiser and/or the quantum sound bank. This can be either in form of a (live) performance, an installation, or a combination of both. Quantum Music also offer an original software instrument, called Quantum Oscillator, as an optional starting point for further artistic exploration.

All selected works will be presented as part of the touring Beyond Quantum Music festival, which will be performed in several European cities and festivals during the 2021/22 season (Linz, The Hague, Hannover, Belgrade). The work must have been created, realised or significantly updated within the last two years.

Quantum Music offer:

  • Artist Fees.

  • Production budget.

  • Travel and accommodation costs for at least one performance (if the work is selected for multiple performances).

  • Extensive communication and presentation of the selected projects.

Applications may be individuals, groups, institutions, companies etc. International participation is encouraged.

Deadline: 10 July 2020
