Shona News: We are heading off to the island of Shona this weekend for a very special Lights Out Listening Group. Due to technical problems (a slightly unreliable internet connection) we will not be streaming the event live as originally planned but will post the audio online very shortly afterwards – details will follow. Thanks to all the contributors who have sent  in work for the Shona Island event – it’s going to be a great programme!

seona projects seona projects 2 For another one-off special Lights Out Listening Group have been asked to collaborate with Shona Projects in a pilot event on the beautiful Scottish island of Eilean Shona in Loch Moidart on the west coast of Scotland. The project will explore the nature of ‘islandness’ and sensory human experiences. Lights Out Listening Group will put together a programme of works for a small group of participants to be played in complete darkness in a small wooden hut on the island. This listening event will be part of a wider project run over the weekend of 20-23 November 2015.

For this exciting event, we need your contributions. To fit with the unique location, we are looking for audio and radio works that are either created specifically for this context or existing works that might fit a broader theme of remoteness, nature, islands, tranquillity, the elements and landscape.

Following the event the full programme will be made available as a podcast so our regular listeners will also be able to listen at home.

As ever we encourage submissions from audio producers far and wide  and submissions are open until the 16th of November, please look at our About page for more information on how to contact us with your submission.

Deadline for submissions: Monday, 16th November, 2015

Listening event and live webstream: Sunday, 22nd November, time and broadcast details TBA.

Project RadioLights Out Listening Group is a unique listening event that takes place in almost complete darkness. Each programme is made up from open submissions sent in by sound artists, experimental musicians and radio makers. Over three years of running these events LOLG has established a friendly and supportive community of audio enthusiasts and sound creators centred at its base in Glasgow.

For a one-off special, LOLG have been invited to put together a programme for a live listening event in Leeds as part of the Project Radio broadcasts. As an experiment we will be beaming this special edition of the LOLG programme  from Glasgow to a room full of people sitting in a darkened room in an art gallery in Leeds. The programme will also be broadcast simultaneously on Project Radio’s web radio stream so if you can’t make it along to the event you can always draw the curtains, close your eyes and tune in at home.

To make this happen we need your contributions. We are looking for audio and radio works for inclusion in the programme with a focus on sound art, spoken word, radio and experimental music.

This is an opportunity to test your audio creations out on a small audience of like-minded individuals who share a love of radio and the sonic arts. This group is open to anybody working with sound at all stages of their career including students, professionals and amateurs. Even if you’ve never worked with sound before – now could be the time to try something out! If you’re just curious or wish simply to come along and listen you will be more than welcome.

The event will be hosted by Project Radio at &Model Gallery in Leeds at 2.30pm on Sunday the 25th October, 2015.

The live stream and other broadcast details are available from the project radio website here.

Project Radio is an open exhibition space and online radio broadcast that coincides with the British Art Show in Leeds in October 2015 and looks at the political and collaborative potential of sound art and radio within the gallery space.

If you’d like to contribute something please email: lightsoutlisteninggroup@gmail.com

– or visit LOLG’s About page for more details on how to submit work.

The deadline for submissions has been extended to Wednesday, 21st October, 2015.
