Miso Music Portugal Residency



Within its policy of promoting and encouraging musical creation, Miso Music Portugal offers a special programme of artistic residencies at the Miso Studio – LEC (Lab for Electroacoustic Creation). In this context and in partnership with the Minstrel project, Miso Music Portugal launches a call for a one-month residency at LEC. This call is open to all composers from the countries involved int the Minstrel project (Belgium, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Greece, Latvia, Austria, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia) – only one composer will be chosen.
The composer chosen for the residency will have to create a new electroacoustic piece for tape from ±8 to
12 minutes during her/his residency.
The residency gives the composer the opportunity to present her/his works informally on the 1st Thursday of
the month of the residency at Quintas Abertas – Agricultura Electroacústica (Thursdays Open Farm – Electroacoustic Agriculture) and also to present the new residency work in concert, performed by the our Loudspeaker Orchestra either during the Miso Music Portugal Concert Season or at the Música Viva Festival, date to be fixed. All presentations of the work must mention Miso Music Portugal/Miso Studio – LEC as the context of its creation.
