Festival DME • Artistic Residency • Seia


Located in the heart of Serra da Estrela, in Portugal, the DME Artistic Residency in Seia aims to provide composers and sound artists with a suitable context for the creation of new works.

We provide accommodation, a workspace with a quadraphonic system and a fee. Other equipment [for recording, projection or other applications] may be provided after discussion with the technical and production team.

We are looking for project proposals in the areas of electroacoustic, acousmatic, mixed music, video music, sound art, and soundscape.

The minimum duration is 2 weeks and the maximum duration is 1 month.

April 2020
opening of applications: 11 Dec 2019
closing of applications: 31 Jan 2020

The project to develop during the residency is proposed by the artist.
The presentation of the final product is possible but not required.
However, it is mandatory to carry out a public activity, open to the community, which may or may not be related to the project developed at the residency.
Priority will be given to new creations directly involving the Seia region and/or its community.
