Edition 3: The Enigma of Objects | Call for Submissions

CALL | The Enigma of Objects | Call for Submissions - Sept 2023

Edition 3 of The Enigma of Objects is accepting micro-stories about objects that emit sound and act as records of our memories. Open to artists, writers, musicians and others. All that’s needed is a photo of your object and 200 words about its relevance to the current theme :

The upcoming edition is titled RECORDS. I invite objects capable of holding music and emitting sounds. The terms “music” and “sound” are defined quite loosely for the purposes of this edition. The focus is on memories that live on in objects and nest in the sound waves they release.
