Sonoscopia is a space for artists involved in experimental, improvised and electro-acoustic music. It is a shared space by a regular core of people who live in and manage the space with a view to the development of artistic projects with the support of appropriate technical resources. The objectives of the artistic residency at Sonoscopia are the creation of experimental musical content, preferentially directly related to the artistic line of the association. The Sonoscopia space has been designed to meet the needs of the different stages of creative projects: executive production, research, rehearsals, audio and video recordings and short informal presentations. The space is shared by a permanent group open to the participation of Portuguese and international collaborators who want to make use of the physical conditions offered by the space and also the creative environmental experienced in the space.
