An upcoming conference on remix cultures is seeking contributions from remix artists and practitioners. This event aims to bring together researchers whose work investigates aspects of remixing, alongside practitioners working in remix cultures, for a collaborative conference. We invite remixers of all kinds to submit artworks in the media of their choice, and/or to speak on their style or aesthetics, or other features of their practice. Live performance submissions are also welcome.

Expressions of intent of 200-250 words should be sent to revise2010@gmail.com by 15 April, 2010. Please include your full name (and/or artist/fan name), email address, and institutional affiliation (if applicable) along with the proposal, and include any tech requirements.

Call for Papers

I've finally gone and done it! Chris Moore and I are now hosting a conference here at UOW. It's called "Revise: The Art and Science of Contemporary Remix Culture" and it's coming up on 2-3 December, 2010.

We are seeking both academic papers and fan submissions of artwork, video remixes and mashups, DJ work, and literary remix. I would love to see practitioners and fan artists attend this event, and you are welcome to submit a short abstract (200-250 words) to revise2010@gmail.com and speak for about 15-20 min about your work or your style. It is our hope to combine the academics and the artists in a collaborative event that everyone can enjoy.

We created a blog for the event over at http://revise2010.blogspot.com with the details of the Call for Papers - submissions are due by 15 April, 2010!
