Call for participants 2023 out now!

We are pleased to invite all musicians and sound artists, national and international, to apply for an open call for an immersive sound residency for the Summer of 2023 in Ottensheim, Austria.
This year’s OTTOsonics residency is a two-week program, where participants realize an interactive sound installation utilizing OTTOsonics ambisonic speaker layout or using OTTOsonics custom-made speaker system and reconstruct them in their audio sculpture setting.



OTTOsonics – open platform for immersive sound

a collaboration between the OTTO Kulturgenossenschaft Ottensheim and the University of Art and Design Linz

OTTOsonics is a collective of sounds-artists, developers, and sound engineers with an initiative to make immersive audio formats accessible to sound and performance artists, as well as cultural and educational institutions, and to facilitate their use in the arts and culture. OTTOsonics is an open platform for artists to address barriers to incorporating immersive sounds in all disciplines of arts and performances, to exchange technical and creative methods from production to implementation, and to share artistic and technological know-how across the field of acoustic and electronic music.
