Sound Art Lab (SAL) is a new centre for artistic development in sound located in the City of Sound, Struer in Denmark. They offer 2 residencies for each 3 months during 2021. Sound Art Lab (SAL) is a laboratory for sound art established by Struer Municipality. They are located in former B&O facility that is presently being renovated and designed to support artistic projects in sound across disciplines and formats. 

Struer is the City of Sound, and sound is on the agenda all over the municipality. The town council in 2020 ratified a strategy for sound art “Art with Effect” that established the framework for a long-term engagement with sound art: in permanent public art works, in the sound art biennale Struer Tracks, in Sound Art Lab etc. At SAL they are interested in the various intersections between sound and art, and their goal is to sustain and develop the cross-disciplinary field of sound art on a national and international scale – while feeding artistic work and experience into local communities.

Their partners are Bang & Olufsen, Harman Lifestyle and Sound Hub Denmark, a sound technology and innovation growth hub. They also partner with Kunsthal Regelbau 411 and the sound art biennale Struer Tracks. All are based locally and offer network and expertise when relevant. Building on these partnerships Sound Art Lab is forming a profile as centre for artistic development in close proximity with technical expertise, design, innovation and business development. 

The purpose of the SAL Residency Program is to facilitate artistic projects on a high level and to foster exchanges between local, national and international networks. For this particular call they are interested in projects that will contribute significantly to their professional environment in Sound Art Lab. They hope to welcome artists who can inspire they and help they develop SAL as a house in dialogue with local as well as international communities and building on local histories and mentalities. They are particularly interested in projects investigating the histories and developing the potentials of the SAL building, established in 1945 as HQ for Bang and Olufsen and its immediate surroundings. 

Residing artists will have their own atelier and access to sound studios and workshops as well as to their network of skilled people at partner institutions. Some facilities are under development during 2021, so make sure to specify your needs in the application.

They offer access to an anechoic chamber, workshops for electronics, wood, metal and 3D print as well as to our general depot of audio gear (recorders, speakers etc.)

The Residency projects should result in a public exhibition/performance/presentation. This will take place within the framework of the SAL Showroom, a flexible conceptual framework that can be set up temporarily in a context relevant for the project: in urban space, in an institution or at a relevant venue. The duration of the residency is 3 months, preferably starting from late August / early September during which time you are expected to reside and work in Struer.

Application deadline June 6, 2021.
