This is a call for provocative and experimental sound works & performances for
the first event in a new series showcasing
sonic art in public spaces. The first Sonic
Actions event will take place across the
city of Brighton in the form of an urban
ramble, with performances and
presentations of work at various locations
along the route. The event will take place
on the evening of Wednesday 24th May 2017
and is being curated by United Untitled
We are interested in any form of art where
sound is the primary medium, for example:
performance • sound sculpture • kinetic art
sound installation • aeolian art
sound walks • listening-based activities
transmission art • conceptual works
site-specific improvisation • foley
happenings • anti-art

- All performances will take place in public

- These events are free and run without any
financial exchange, which in turn means
that no-one will be paid for their contribution to this event. This is not because we do
not value art or artists, but because we are
trying to work outside of a system where art
is commodified and promotes exclusivity. We
will try to support in kind (food, accommodation) where possible.

Deadline for submission:

United Untitled are a newly formed collective of anonymous artists based in the UK. We are interested
in creating radical events; where the manner in which art is presented and engaged with is as important as the content of the work itself. Art can be a catalyst for change and we believe that the only
way to effectively critique a system is by operating outside of it. We are an independent collective,
with no ties to the art establishment, institutions, or funding streams. Our events operate without
any exchange of money and will continue to remain free for audiences. We hope that presenting in this
manner will allow the sonic arts to be experienced by more inclusive and diverse audiences.
