MSPS New Music Festival 2011 seeks to bring together a community of emerging and established artists from around the world whose work challenges the reality of space and desires to arrive at new modes of thought and meaning-making surrounding the potentials of our architectural environments through the sonic arts. They are looking for artists who will bring to the exhibition a unique set of tools, techniques and theoretical positions with which to call into question and explore the potentials of sound as a medium through which new definitions and conceptions of space may be divined.
MSPS New Music Festival 2011 is an exhibition set in the historic McNeill Street Pumping Station located on Cross Bayou, Shreveport, Louisiana. The pumping station house is a 124 year old brick building that has both indoor and outdoor spaces available for installation. Massive brass tanks, deep wells and concrete separation pool structures are but a few of the potential sonic environments to choose from.
