Drake Music In translation


For Drake Music In Translation, we are seeking to commission 2 artists with personal experience of disability to collaborate with Drake Music artist / curator in residence, Melanie Clifford, on a new online commission investigating translation and interpretation. We are interested in commissioning artists who work in any medium that can be exhibited via an accessible online platform, including, but not limited to: music, text, sound, image, performance for video and / or a conceptual approach to networked media and collaboration. The starting point for the commissioned work(s) will be a 1 minute silent video by Melanie Clifford, which will be audio described. Across 4 weeks in March 2011, the 3 artists will use online communication tools to explore translation and interpretation in their work. During this period, some of their ideas / conversations / work-in-progress will be posted to commission-specific pages of the forthcoming, new Drake Music website. At the end of this process the final piece(s) will be exhibited online via the Drake Music website, launching our New Commissions programme, 2011. DM will undertake to publicise and host the final piece, and each artist will receive a small honorarium of £400 for their work. To apply, please send your CV + up to 3 examples of your work, documented in digital format (or link to website where examples can be found) + a brief statement of your interest in the theme of translation and interpretation. We can accept attachments up to 25MB in most digital formats. Please contact us if you have any questions about your application, the project, or Drake Music. Applications and enquiries by email to: info@drakemusic.org The deadline for applications is 5pm, Monday 7th February 2011. This commission is open internationally. Commissioned artists should be available to work online during the period 28th February - 25th March 2011.
