Binaural/Nodar (PT) announces:
Nodar Artist Residency Program for 2011
Open call for the presentation of art projects
Application Submission period:
May 1, 2010 ‚Äì September 30, 2010
Sound Poetry; Vocal Performance; Sound Art; Phonography; Acoustic,
Electroacoustic or Electronic Composition / Improvisation; Radio Art; Video
The application is open to art projects centred in the human voice,
which work with issues such as the origin, meaning and relationship with the
sacred (reconnected to its ancestral meaning of mystery and symbol), the
voice as a pivotal element of rituals, customs and superstitions, able to
enchant the listener and bring deep changes to the reality, to the
communities and territory, the voice as the protagonist of memories, myths,
archetypes, folk wisdom handed down through the centuries, or even the voice
of everyday, tool for work and life.
15 art projects will be selected to be developed in a series of artist
residencies that will take place between May and October 2011 in interaction
with the context of each of the 15 rural villages of the Gralheira mountain
region in Portugal, those ones that comprise the network of ‚ÄúAldeias de
Magaio‚Äù (http://www.aldeiasdemagaio.org): Nodar, Sequeiros, Sete Fontes,
Rompecilha, Macieira, Aldeia, Leirados, Fujaco, Candal, P√≥voa das Leiras,
Covas do Rio, Covas do Monte, Pena, Manhouce and Vilarinho.
The developed works will be presented to the public in early 2012, as part
of an event that will include concerts, exhibition of videos, lectures and a
retrospective exhibition of the whole project. This exhibition will have an
itinerant character and an underlying program of educational activities.
