Linux Audio Conference

 Lectures / Demos / Workshops / Concerts / Linux Soundnight

Köln, 28.2.-2.3.2008


The conference will include an exhibition of sound art or mixed media art with a substantial sound portion. This exhibition will consist of works by students of the Academy of Media Arts (KHM) Cologne and artists from outside the KHM. We are looking for installation projects with a substantial sound portion which have been entirely or mostly produced under Linux and/or with open source software for inclusion in the abovementioned exhibition.

Installation proposals may be designed for a specific presentation space and/or reflect certain aspects of the exhibition venue. In order to give some impressions of the venue, photos of the different spaces available for the exhibition along with some notes are provided for download at

Proposals for entirely self-contained and non-site-specific projects are also welcome. The submission of proposals for previously unrealised installations is encouraged, though installations which already have been shown may also get selected.

The artistic and technical realisation of the selected proposals is completely up to the artists. Basic technical support for the exhibition (electricity, standard network access, limited basic assistance) is provided by the conference organisers.

Out of all submitted proposals, two projects will be selected for funded realisation by a jury. To each of the two selected projects, a scholarship of EUR 2.000,00 will be granted. This fee should cover the entire realisation of the project, material expenses, travel, accomodation and all further expenses in conjunction with the realisation of the project. The selected artists are invited to use the school's facilities (e.g. laboratories, studios) free of charge for realising the work. In case a selected proposal has been submitted by more than one artist, one person has to be elected by the team for being responsible for the project, signing the contract and receiving the money due to legal issues.


Due to legal issues, the scholarships for the projects can only be given to non-germans, i.e. to anybody whose nationality is NOT german.

Further projects might be invited for inclusion in the exhibition but whithout granting any funding from the conference.

For submission, please use the form provided with the photo material. Submission is via e-mail to:
