Other Lands, Other Sounds 2018
Outras Terras, Outros Sons
A Residential Course for Collaborative Arts Practice in Góis, Portugal
August 1-12, 2018
An intensive residential course bringing together visual artists and musicians to work collaboratively over ten days, creating new works combining photography, moving image, music, and sound art. Surrounded by the beautiful mountainside scenery of Gois, Portugal, Other Lands, Other Sounds 2018 offers a supportive environment for advanced practitioners (professionals, amateurs, students) who want to develop their practice through cross-arts experimentation and collaboration. The theme of this year's workshop is "(land)scape/paisagens". Musicians will work closely with composer Filipe Sousa, exploring composition, improvisation, and collaborative music-making processes. Visual artists will work with Beatriz Martinez, exploring photography and video, and how to merge aesthetics and concept into multi-disciplinary projects. Intensive work sessions will be balanced with nature hikes, local sight seeing, swimming in the river, visiting local cafes and enjoying the relaxed pace of rural Portuguese life.
“The Other Lands, Other Sounds programme is fantastic – a great opportunity to explore composition and improvisation processes and approaches in a beautiful and supportive environment. The town of Gois is an ideal location for exploring creativity and artistry. I am very pleased to have chosen this programme and the support I received has really helped my work."
