Locus Sonus Lab is recruting 3 research fellows for the academic year 2007/2008.
Locus Sonus is a research group specialized in audio art (involving the participating schools: École Supérieure d'Art d'Aix-en-Provence, École Nationale Supérieure d'Art de Nice Villa Arson and the École Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Marseille) in collaboration with CNRS/MMSH/LAMES Laboratory of the University of Provence .
Locus Sonus experiments and evaluates the innovative and transdisciplinary nature of audio art forms in a lab-type context.
Locus Sonus is also concerned with the communal, collective or multi-user aspects inherent to many emerging audio practices, which involve working as a group.

The "Lab" proposes a process combining practical artistic experiment and critical evaluation within a group context.
