#OSA. DARE TO CREATE.
A CALL FOR DJ PRODUCERS.
From 9 April to 26 May 2019
The challenge: to give sounds dating back thousands of years an electronic reconfiguration, creating new sonic visions in search of a nu-Lucan sound yet to be invented. From 9 April to 9 May 2019 OSA, the international call linked to Open Sound Festival, is open.
The sounds to work with belong to the big Open Sound audio-library: arbëreshë choruses, bagpipes, cowbells, cupa cupa, and percussion, gathered over the course of Yuval Avital’s two artistic residencies in Lucania, and then recorded in studio sessions. All the sounds you find here are open source, non-proprietary, choral and collective, generated by self-built instruments and made available to artists from all over the world for remixes or live sessions.
The Open Sound curators will select two tracks. The creators of the two selected tracks will be guests at Open Sound Festival from 28 August to 1 September 2019 in Matera, and will take part in events and workshops, in close contact with producers and artists from Italy and all over the world. Their tracks will ring out on the festival main stage.
