OPEN CALL – Sound creations inspired by the Universe

The performance and theatre company V XX ZWEETZ and Human Kind Records invites poets, sound artists and musicians to send sound works inspired by the Universe for a 24h radio broadcast.

The works will be broadcast during a 24 hour radio performance starting on the 9th of December and ending on the 10th of December 2018 in Milan at radio residency CoseCosmiche.
During the 24 hours, a small shop will be transformed into a “space craft” and an astronaut will live there for 24 a day immersed and listening to sounds of the universe. The astronaut will travel through the Solar System encountering various celestial objects, moons and planets which will each spark the sound works.

The passing by audience will be invited to enter the space craft whenever they want and pass some time with the silent astronaut, listening to his journey.
