Access the radio projects developed by artists, researchers and collectives invited to this eighth edition of EIRA. Also listen to their conversations with members of OSSO.
The collective Sonoscopia, as a resident archive in this edition of EIRA, will present a significant portion of its sound editions and research, the result of continuous work that has been developed over the past decade. Alongside the remembrance of this journey, we will also spend a few days in residence at OSSO, where we will develop new sound creations based on the less explored areas of our recent archive.
Conversation between Ricardo Jacinto and Gustavo Costa | 16.02.23
Sonoscopia positions itself as a space for reflection and creation, where the convergence of different ways of thinking and acting stands out as one of its main strengths. Over these last few years, we have made an effort to create a space where various artists related to experimental, improvised, and electroacoustic music can exchange ideas and develop consistent work in a physical space that provides worthy technical and human conditions. We believe that this dynamic not only allows Sonoscopia’s creative collective to evolve but also enables the entire framework of collaboration with local and national creators to be properly established within an international network of creators. We aim to create a free space where people can feel a part of Sonoscopia based on their abilities, within the context of the Sonoscopia space/association/collective/project. We want people to come to Sonoscopia, attend our events, be included in our projects, and feel that they are a part of Sonoscopia.
