AUDO is an unconventional festival that invites practitioners and theoreticians from a broad range of sound-related disciplines to discuss new strategies for the creation, production, distribution and cultural analysis of sound and music-based work.
AUDO 2010 will be the second installment of this biennial event succeeding AUDO 2008 which took place at Purdue University in May 2008. AUDO 2008 has been documented and archived in sound and video on the DVD AUDO 2008 (please contact fwinkler at purdue dot edu to order a copy or get it at Marx Café during AUDO 2010).
Activities in AUDO 2010 will include: sound walks, concerts, creation of interactive sound networks, exhibits that translate hand drawn images or body movements into sounds and many other exciting examples of contemporary sound art… AUDO 2010 is comprised of 2 linked components: a three-day series of discussion forums, performances and workshops (festival component) leading to an exhibition of resulting outcomes in an exhibition component immediately following the festival. The goal of this exhibition is to showcase results of creative interactions between festival participants during the first three days of the event: videos, sounds, interactive systems, objects, texts that have been created collaboratively highlighting the word “DO” in the festival’s title.
