Artist Residency Program in Sound and Experimental Music for 2016
Part of SOCCOS, an European sound/experimental music artist residency network including Binaural/Nodar (PT), QO-2 (BE), Disk/CTM (DE), Hai-Art (FI) and A-I-R Laboratory (PL).
Municipalities of São Pedro do Sul and Vouzela (Portugal)
April and October 2016

[Call for creative projects open until 30 September 2015]

Binaural/Nodar announces an open call for creative projects in sound art/experimental music under the generic concept of  “playing the rural landscape” in its double, tactile and musical, meanings. After several years  hosting projects that worked thematic aspects of the territory that were beforehand proposed to artists (riverscapes, voicescapes, religion, rural architecture, social mobility), Binaural/Nodar returns to the liberating nature of the absence of a script or of a previous guiding theme, inviting artists to emphasize the organic, expressive and/or visceral contact with (natural and built) landscapes of the Gralheira mountain range (São Pedro do Sul), through performances and/or installations to be conceived from the stimuli and interactions arising during the residency.

a) In the selection process the following types of artistic works will be privileged: Electroacoustic / vocal / sound art compositions; Permanent or ephemeral sound sculptures; Radio works; Free improvisation.

b) The artist residencies  will be developed in April and October 2016 (each artist will develop his/her project during three weeks in only one of the mentioned periods).
