Hotham Sound is currently accepting submissions for a sound compilation based on the paintings of the Dutch artist and theoretician Piet Mondrian. The purpose of this project is to re-imagine Mondrian's paintings as a series of graphic scores, and to then rigorously interpret them. Each participant is encouraged to work with a painting of their choice from the abstract geometric works produced between 1914 and 1944. There are no rules as to what form each interpretation takes, as long as it represents a sincere attempt on the part of the participant to create a one-to-one 'sound-map' of the painting in question. The result may sound like music, or noise, or computer bleeps, or machinery, or total gibberish. It may last ten seconds or ten minutes. All are welcome. But it must trace the forms of the painting in a recognizable way. We're not looking for music 'inspired by', we're looking for direct audio equivalents. If you have any questions, please send us an email. If you'd like to participate, please send us your interpretation, along with the full name of the painting being interpreted, as well as a brief description of the process you came up with for interpreting it. We're very curious to hear from you.

THE MONDRIANS will be released on Hotham Sound in early 2018. Submissions will remain open until 03/18.
