We are excited to announce the return of our in-person US program with a residency this Spring April 18th – May 9th at The Atlantic Center for The Arts, FL. This ninth edition of OneBeat US will bring together 21 diverse artists from 12 countries & territories to explore the theme of Sonic Imaginaries. In her research, pioneering musician Pauline Oliveros, described the tendency for contemporary culture to prioritize visual over aural spheres—even in our imagination. As a new fellowship of OneBeat artists comes together, we will ask them to explore the sound of imagination and prioritize their “mind’s ear”, a distinctive under-researched form of self-knowledge and possibility. This is a unique moment in time that has many emerging from pandemic isolation while others recede into new forms of isolation caused by conflict and threats to free expression. This cohort of OneBeat Fellows will enter spaces of collaboration that allow their aural imaginations to freely share diverse perspectives and imagine new sonic futures together.
In the past ten years of the program we have seen the OneBeat mission become a reality, far beyond our initial expectations. As we celebrate a decade of the OneBeat program, we are so pleased and honored to welcome a new cohort to our vibrant, growing OneBeat community!
