This residency envisions three clear outputs that all residents will have a chance to contribute to:
- Sound Library (Sound Capture)
SONOTOMIA Residents will identify, capture and classify the soundscapes of previously agreed elements of the natural and cultural heritage of the Albarracín region, for instance the sounds of the environment (landscape, flora, fauna), the sounds of the most significant buildings (cathedral, castle, churches, museums, hermitage) and the sounds of Albarracín streets among others.
- Collecting Acoustics on Albarracín Cultural Heritage Sites
SONOTOMIA residents will build up the sound of Albarracín by collecting sound archives and using 4DSOUND technology to translate the acoustics of the town’s most relevant historical sites within the virtual environment of 4DSOUND.
- Landmark Art Installation
Residents will have an opportunity to conceptualise and prototype the first joint solution (blueprint) of a landmark installation which will be developed in the later stages of the project.
Musical Final Presentation Piece (Alentejo, Portugal 2022)
Some of the residents who are keener on sound engineering and music composition will be in charge of experimenting with and developing sound elements for the purpose of creating a musical piece, to be shown at Terras sem Sombra Festival in Alentejo in 2022.
SONOTOMIA seeks cooperation and peer-learning among all residents, regardless of their backgrounds, experiences and interests, as a significant source of inspiration and a critical aspect of the SONOTOMIA Residency 2.0. The orientation and support of the professionals will be initiated before the residency through virtual meetings to prepare them for collaboration and the setting in which the work will take place and will continue throughout the duration of the residency and beyond.
This project is co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme; therefore the SONOTOMIA residents will have their travel and all subsistence costs covered.
SONOTOMIA will not cover any costs of leisure activities outside of the residency programme nor costs related to the individual health insurance.
