Eira is a Radio platform designed for artistic residencies. Eira will be transmitted via FM (101.0 MHz in Aldeia de São Gregório, Caldas da Rainha) and online (www.osso.pt). It will host artistic, training and programming residencies based on radio, its context and its contemporary mutations. Eira’s function is predominately laboratorial with a focus on community engagement. The project encourages critical thinking about Territory, a concept OSSO has been exploring over the past years.
The project will be realised in three stages; the first will take place between June 27th and July 12th, and the final two during October and December 2020.
For online access to the EIRA platform we designed a multimedia interface accessible by clicking on the image above.
In this interface you can choose to hear a replica of the FM broadcast (at the top of the window) or the Open Studio of each of the resident artists or collectives. To do so, just check which channels are Active (A) and press Play. To return to the FM online broadcast, simply press Play at the top of the window again.
In this interface, the auditorium can also find written and visual information about the project to be developed by the participants, as well as their broadcast schedule on air (FM).
EIRA # 1 will be focused on a temporary Radio project that will be available to be listened in the village of São Gregório and its surroundings, during this period. This program will include live music; talks with and about people of the village and the region; workshops and radio projects by artists who had been invited to Creation and Training Residencies at OSSO.
Catarina Botelho, Francisca Aires Mateus, Grémio Caldense, Lobo Mau, Madalena Matoso, Osso Colectivo and Pedro Tropa will be the first artists in residence at São Gregório, Caldas da Rainha.
