Sonic Visions Fund info session

Tuesday, January 23 2024

SPACE is excited to announce that the Sonic Visions Fund is back in 2024! This is the 3rd year of our homegrown grant program funding multi-dimensional projects led by Maine musicians. With generous support from the Onion Foundation, we are increasing the grant awards to $3,000 this year with additional support available for production, marketing, and documentation.

Applications are now open and will close on Sunday, February 4th at 11:59pm.

We will hold an info session for all interested musicians at SPACE on Tuesday, January 23rd at 6pm. RSVP here.

A low-tech remote option will be offered for those in other parts of the state, but in-person attendance is encouraged for those who are able! Please RSVP to receive the Zoom link.

Notes from the presentation can be found here.

About the Sonic Visions Fund:

  • Projects can be, but are not limited to live performances, video projects, sound installations, new compositions, recorded works, and digital and interactive pieces. Projects may certainly involve several of these elements and beyond.
  • All projects must have a public component. This can be a performance, an installation, a digital event, an artist talk, or anything else public or participatory. Applicants are encouraged to consider the possibilities of outdoor gatherings and installations. SPACE will provide additional production, promotional, and documentation support for the public components of the projects.
  • Projects may be collaborative and multidisciplinary, but at least half of the collaborators involved in the project must be based in Maine.
  • Collaborators may work on an application together, but all projects must have one lead applicant and point of contact, who is a Maine-based musician.
  • All projects must be completed by September 1st, 2024.

We encourage applicants to seek inspiration from past projects. Some examples:
Angelikah Fahray’s Serious Life
Kal Sugatski: moon music
Beat Traffic
An Anderson and Inventing Trees: Forest Emissaries
Kafari and Dr. Scribbz: Riffs and Lullabies
Jimmy Dority: See People Care
Assasi: Third World Wide
Clay Camero: Flesh & Blood
