Share on Sun Oct 16th is a special night
in collaboration with Ear to Earth 2011 festival

All participants are encouraged to bring sound/visual files made in Brooklyn to be used in the openjam on Oct 16th!

Also note:

to audio artists >> Please be encouraged to bring your own cables, adaptors & any necessary other things (batteries, power adaptors, and even an extra power strips) - as our 'rent-out' equipment has been slimming down w/ people (mistakenly) walked away in the past. ;(

to visual artists >> Please be encouraged to bring adaptor(s) to connect w/ VGA cable for video projectors. We have two projectors. But if you can also bring one to add (even for your own use), it'd be super! If you're working w/film &/or slides media, please come w/ your projectors. We always love them!! (IPR seems to have a film projector... but not sure which type & if it's been tested lately...)

to all those who would kindly bring in cables/adaptors/powerstrips >> Please mark them w/ your name to avoid confusions!!

Thank YOU!!!


Do you listen to your environment? What sounds remind you of home? Have you ever thought of using those sounds as music?

SHARE will draw from the pool of recordings gathered by workshop participants, via online submissions (closed already) and on-site participants' own recordings, combined with visual fieldrecordings, create an immersive improvisation of Brooklyn sounds and sights. The Share performance will take place on October 16, 2011 at Issue Project Room as part of the Ear to the Earth Festival.

Recordings from the workshops will further be used as part of a final work featuring sounds from all boroughs, called 100 x John. 100 x John is dedicated to John Cage in honor of his 100th birthday, and modeled on the compositional techniques of John Cage, using indeterminacy and New York sounds to create a true New York Soundscape.

Ear to the Earth is a festival and organization that highlights issues of the environment through sound and media. For its sixth annual installment, Ear to the Earth will present New York Soundscape, an event portraying the sonic life force of New York City, October 15 – 23, 2011.

SHARE is an open forum to explore expression using a variety of art forms. Participants are encouraged to show and exchange ideas freely by giving each other feedback, catalyzing and developing techniques and philosophies in collaborative performance. SHARE does not curate, nor takes any authority over contents/expressions.

SHARE fosters open and spontaneous collaborations between artists through free, weekly Open Jam sessions, workshops, special large-scale events in various cities, and a strong Internet presence. SHARE blurs the boundary between its participants and spectators, and engages all in a continually changing dialog on art and culture. As such, SHARE represents an ongoing exploration of collaborative performance as cultural exchange. SHARE mines the relationship of artistic practice to cultural identity, remapping a multiplicity of cultural discourses.
