In 2007, ctrl_alt_del will be realized by NOMAD in corporation with Istanbul
Technical University MIAM and Kadir Has University. The base of the
project will be Kadir Has University which is located on Golden Horn. This
year ctrl_alt_del will include Opening Concert, Performance Series (live),
Workshops, Panels, Presentations, Open Call, Field Studies/Workshops,
Exhibition, Radio Programmes, Publication and CD release. The theme of
ctrl_alt_del in 2007 will be ³remote orienteering². As the first dedicated
sound art festival in Turkey, ctrl_alt_del enjoyed a great deal of
international publicity in 2003 and 2005. For the third ctrl_alt_del to be
held in September 2007, we are now looking for interesting, provocative,
subversive, experimental and sophisticated works. 5 pieces will be selected
by the jury and will be presented during ctrl_alt_del.
The practice of ³remote orienteering² suggests generating content and
schematics in our conduct. Equally applicable for radical means of urban
subversion, ³remote orienteering² is the key process which the entries of
ctrl-alt-del should be directed.
The pieces are asked to be compliant with the following subjects in order to
create an intellectual climate of comprehension and discussion:
1. sounds for orientation, or sound as orientation.
2. distant sounds or sound in spatial contexts
3. sound and cultural subversion
1. Two audio CD¹s (original and a copy) of only ONE piece is the format of
the submission. Piece will not be more than 4 minutes long. Projects which
rely on specific visual documentation can be submitted on a DVD, but in any
case clip should not be longer than 4 minutes.
2. The name of the participant and the name of the piece(s) should be
written on this CD with a permanent marker.
3. An A4 size page with name, address, e-mail and telephone number of the
participant, and the names of the piece will be submitted.
4. An optional, separate A4 size page with a description, clarification or
reflection could be submitted depending completely on the desire of the
participant. These optional documents will not be used for evaluation, but
they could be used in later stages.
