Press / Open Call for Sonica 2017: Titan Crane Commission

Open Call for Sonica 2017: Titan Crane Commission 07 Jun 2017

For 2017, celebrating 110 years since the Titan Crane was built, Cryptic would like to commission a Scottish-based composer/sound artist to create a bespoke electronic soundscape for the wheelhouse of the crane. This new work would ideally reflect not only Titan’s role as an outstanding icon of the Clyde’s industrial heritage, celebrating its extraordinary innovative engineering, it would also celebrate the regeneration of Clydebank’s waterfront and its future.

The site-specific work will be presented in the Titan Crane during one of the weekends as part of Cryptic’s biennial visual sonic arts festival, Sonica, which returns to Glasgow from 26 October – 5 November 2017.

All Scottish-based composers and sound artists (regardless of age or stage in their career) are welcome to apply. We are looking for creatively ambitious artists with innovative ideas to transform the exciting and inspiring wheel house of the Crane into a memorable sonic experience. Artists who have previously presented work at Sonica or are currently in higher or further education are not eligible to apply.
