Audio Foundation announces a call out for 3 Sound Artists to participate in an international collaboration
DIGITAL FREEZE – The Audio Foundation (Auckland) & LTK4 (Cologne)


The Audio Foundation is proud to announce DIGITAL FREEZE, an artistic collaboration with LTK4, an arts organisation and exhibition space for sound art in Cologne, Germany.


Prior to the global disruption caused by COVID-19, this project was poised to begin with a group of German sound artists and musicians traveling to Auckland to collaborate with selected local artists. These collaborations were to result in performances, recordings and documentary ephemera to compliment an exhibition of the work of Verena Barie, Luís Antunes Pena, and Rochus Aust at the Audio Foundation Gallery. This was to be followed by a contingent of NZ artists traveling to Cologne.

With the situation still serious and much of our lives confined to digitally mediated spaces, such an international collaboration is no longer possible, at least not in a shared physical space. Instead, we beginning this collaborations by exchanging “old-school” snail-mail.
The name for this collaboration, taking place against a shifting backdrop (firstly of dramatic stasis and more recently of profound reevaluation), is DIGITAL FREEZE.


New Zealand based sound artists are invited to apply to participate in this project.

– The project will take place over the next 12months
