Teatro Carlos Alberto hosts the first edition of Colexpla – International Festival of Sonic Explorers. Committed to divulging new forms of musical expression in the domains of experimental, improvised, electro-acoustic music and sound art, Colexpla is a sort of descendant of Co-Lab – International Festival of Experimental Music, which was held in Porto from 1998 to 2003. That festival’s five editions showcased this new form of Art music and helped several Porto musicians to define their aesthetic identities. Fifteen years later, Colexpla comes to extend and renew this legacy, by surveying the current state of exploratory music, reflecting on it and engaging with it, and thus triggering possible repercussions in Portuguese artistic creativity. The festival will focus on such diverse areas as musical expression via new instruments, new forms of interactivity in improvisation, the cross-pollination between composition and improvisation or the sound installation as a musical form. Promoting debate and the concept of freedom on which it is founded, Colexpla will bring together new artists and established names of international improvisation/experimentation in concerts, sound installations, a workshop and a talk. Featuring Abdul Moimême, Alfredo Costa Monteiro, Diana Combo, Eran Sachs, Inês Castanheira, Kaffe Matthews, Ken Butler, Lionel Marchetti, Marta Ângela, Meira Asher, Miguel Garcia, MSHR, Toma Gouband, Tomoko Sauvage, Trio Sowari, ::vtol::, Wade Matthews and Xavier Garcia.
