ICAS Speed Dating

International Cities of Advanced Sound

ICAS Speed Dating is an opportunity for local artists and professionals (visual artists, performers, musicians, sound art producers, designers, etc) to meet and present their work to ICAS network members and associated partners. Participants will have 8 minutes per “date” to present their organisation or project before moving onto the next representative. 

ICAS – International Cities of Advanced Sound is a global network of independent non-profit organizations dedicated to advancing sound cultures, music and related arts. The ICAS network aims to support its members in building sustainable infrastructures to sustain, promote, and encourage experimental and critical sound cultures. Using a palette of transdisciplinary approaches, ICAS member organizations reflect on the aesthetic and societal agency of contemporary sound creation in regard to transformation processes induced by digital technology, and actively engage in building bridges between art disciplines, cultural fields, scenes, and genres.

Participation is based on pre-submitting a short application form, found below.

TIP: Participants are encouraged to bring music or audiovisual samples on their laptops, ipods, or other device, in oder to share their work during the session.
