ECOSS, ECOSYSTEMS OF THE UNEXPECTED 2019: SOUND CONTEXT LABS

Kòniclab presents the first activity of the ‘ECOSS’ Festival, 2019 edition

 “ECOSS, ecosystems of the unexpected”, an intermedia festival which, in this new edition, explores the space of intersection between arts, nature and technology, within a gender perspective.

Defying conventional narratives, ECOSS presents an interactive approach to new artistic languages and to the ever-expanding territories of cultural transversality, where technology is presented to us as a way to reinvent the living arts and our relationship with others, humans and non-humans alike and the space that surrounds us.

An inedit digital culture, unclassifiable and visionary, that provokes an encounter with the unexpected.

CALLING FOR PARTICIPANTS: ECOSS 2019 calls to take part in two days of practical workshops on sound experimentation.

Two interesting workshops of Sound Art with Lina Bautista and Víctor Jiménez’s teachings, where we’ll learn to apply digital editing techniques to create and experiment with various soundscapes.

Both of these workshops on “Sound Context – Characterization and space recreation” will end with an open doors session to share the experience and the process with the public. Also, at the end of each sound lab session there will be musical interventions and interactive performances, don’t miss out!
