Semibreve Festival program alternative edition for October

The Semibreve Festival, dedicated to electronic music and sound art, reformulated this year’s edition because of the covid-19, and in October will feature mostly online programming and some performances at the Tibães Monastery, in Braga.

What was prepared for this year was postponed to 2021, and a program has now been designed that starts from the idea of ​​seclusion and which was thought to be enjoyed at a distance on the 24th and 25th of October.

On the official page of the Semibreve, new sound works created at the invitation of the festival will be available in October by some of the most stimulating artists of today, including Ana da Silva, from Raincoats, veteran Argentine composer Beatriz Ferreyra and American guitarist Jim O ‘Rourke.

Their works, as well as Jessica Ekomane, Kara-Lis Coverdale, Keith Fullerton Whitman and Tyondai Braxton, will be in installation format at the São Martinho de Tibães Monastery.

It is at Casa do Volfrâmio, in the woods of that monastery, that there will be performances, without public and with online transmission, performances by five artists invited by Semibreve to perform artistic residencies in Braga: Pedro Maia, Klara Lewis, Laurel Halo, Nik Void and Oliver Coates.

Based on the restrictions imposed by the pandemic, the Semibreve Festival will also present conversations open to a limited number of audiences at the Monastery of Tibães and which deal with contemporary creation in the areas of electronic, experimental and sound art.

The artists Chris Watson and David Toop, the curators Nuno Crespo and Margarida Mendes, the researcher Raquel Castro and the programmer Pedro Santos are some of the guests of these conversations.

According to the organization, those who had already purchased the general pass for this year’s edition may choose to carry it over to the 2021 edition or request its return.
