otic. is a student-run radio platform based at KHM. otic. is a space for artworks that relate to the ear rather than the eye. otic. is looking for listeners. otic. is looking for broadcasters.
otic. is commoning radio.
Since 2017 otic. offers airtime to all students, staff and the wider community. For winter semester 2018/9, our weekly programme will centre on practices of common work, the (re)production and distribution of uncommon knowledges and the need for collective forms of hospitality, empathy and remembering.
Commoning responds to a communal search for porous and less productivity-driven understandings, establishing itself between personal interests and public needs. To work collaboratively, to work in dialogue with others and to be receptive to the experience of the listener are some of the considerations that constitute otic. in common. This idea is rooted in the reconsideration and realization of different approaches to producing and presenting radio broadcasts; reflecting on shared necessities, in particular the conflicts and troubles that arise when we share spaces with others.
With this proposal, we want to give a space to experiment hands-on the "public" through the "common."
To make otic. in common, we seek ideas for pairing the artistic possibilities of radio with the potential of live performance and pre-recorded pieces. The call for works is open, but not restricted, to: sound art, experimental music, live performance, radio plays, storytelling, readings, spoken word, improvisation, discussion shows, DJ sets, documentary features, field recordings. All broadcasts will appear as a live-stream on the KHM website and will be available afterwards for download as a podcast.
The call is open to existing projects or ideas still in development. Works in any language may be submitted.
The APPLICATION FORM [https://goo.gl/forms/G8Qns62AP2oSveJP2] should be completed in English or German and include the following materials:
- A project description
- Sketches, images, texts, audio material if possible
- Approximate length of the piece (minimum 15 minutes, maximum 2 hours)
- A brief outline of the technical requirements for the broadcast and whether technical support is required
We are also LOOKING FOR CO-ORGANISERS, if you are interested please mention this in your application.
