A call for telematic performances for Deep Wireless Festival X, 1 May 2012
We are looking for individuals and ensembles from around the world to perform over the Internet on May 1st 2012 as part of the 10th anniversary of Deep Wireless, organized by New Adventures in Sound Art (Toronto).
The performances will be part of a webcasted six-hour-long, worldwide jam session, which will be coordinated from the music department at Concordia University in Montreal.
Performers are invited from everywhere around the world, as long as they have access to high-speed broadband Internet and do not mind performing at potentially strange hours of the day (or night).
Additionally, for a collaborative telematic piece titled “Hug the world,” proposals are particularly encouraged from Asia, Africa, South America, Australia and New Zealand, and as far north and south in the globe as possible.
The programming theme for Deep Wireless 2012 is Freedom and we ask participants to consider what that means from their cultural and artistic perspective.
Experience with telematics is not required!
How to propose:
Send an initial expression of interest to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please include the following details in your email:

Experience with telematics and jacktrip
Any questions you have
You will receive additional information about logistics, training, testing, and performance times, etc.
If this is of interest to you, you are encouraged to communicate with us as early as possible. It will assure proper consideration and preparation of logistical matters on both ends.
