Call for sonic experiments in text: BLURT

blurt is an experimental platform supporting artists to develop text-based works for performance and live-to-air broadcast on RTM.FM. In this testing-site for testing text, TACO! invites artists to consider, with us, radio broadcast as an expanded form of publishing. We perform to publish, which is to say, to make public. And our moment of thinking is live on air! TACO! is seeking proposals for sonic experiments in text: aural encounters, vernacular enquiries, conversations, radio plays and other weird waves. TACO! will support four artists or artist groups to develop and test work over a four-week research and development period, over the months of April and May. This will culminate in blurt, a public performance series at TACO! and broadcast live on RTM.FM.
