The North Brooklyn Public Art Coalition has an open call for sound artists for their project, nbAUDIO 2011:

NbPac invites Brooklyn-based artists to propose projects for a sound installation to be displayed for the greater North Brooklyn community (Bushwick, Greenpoint, Williamsburg) in Spring 2011. Artists are asked to consider the historical, social, and political atmosphere of North Brooklyn’s community in their proposals for sound art. A critical element of the project requires artists to select a site and describe how the public will be engaged in that space and with the artwork itself. Artists are encouraged to create a new work or expand upon former projects that act in response to / in conversation with / or as a commentary on North Brooklyn. Collaborative group projects are welcome! The deadline for applications is Monday, August 30th and the selected artist will be notified on September 15th.

This proposal reminds me of Matt Borgatti’s “Anywhere Organ” project, as well as Ranjit Bhatnagar‘s many sound sculptures.
