THINGS OF INTEREST
During 2012 IMMA is introducing a new online application system for those applying to the Artists’
Residency Programme. The online system will be open to prospective applicants for six weeks from
Friday 18th May until Friday 29th June 2012 and will be accessible through IMMA’s website along
with supporting application guidelines. Successful applications will be scheduled to
participate on the Artists’ Residency Programme in 2013 when it resumes fully at IMMA.
For 2012, due to the refurbishment at IMMA’s RHK site, ARP activities will be limited,
however the full provision of facilitating art professionals living and working on-site at IMMA
will recommence once the Museum returns to its permanent location in 2013.
For more information on the residency programme and IMMA’s ongoing activities please go to http://www.imma.ie

ATVP presents Sound Garden: Acousmatic Sounds
The Sound Garden is an outdoor space established for the 2012 season –
featuring a rotating roster of experimental and contemporary sound art.
Located on the ground level in the sunny rear courtyard,
tracks are played over an immersive 2-channel stereo audio system.
Callout for interested parties to be involved in our 2012 program are now open.
Each exhibition runs for 4 weeks with our first, Acousmatic Sounds, starting 22nd March.
Acousmatic sound, is sound one hears without seeing an originating cause.
The word acousmatic, from the French acousmatique, is derived from ἀκουσματικοί akousmatikoi,
a term used to refer to probationary pupils of the philosopher Pythagoras who,
so that they might better concentrate on his teachings,
were required to sit in absolute silence while listening to their teacher deliver
his lecture from behind a veil or screen.
Works can be electronic or electro-acoustic pre-recorded works that
can be played in the space throughout the entirety of the exhibition.
