A new 3-year initiative co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union, the SHAPE project reunites 16 European non-profit organisations active within the ICAS – International Cities of Advanced Sound network to create a platform that aims to support, promote, and exchange innovative and aspiring emergent musicians and interdisciplinary artists with an interest in sound.
SHAPE thus attempts to present a variety of idiosyncratic sounds from all over Europe, and to provide audiences and professionals with insightful lectures, talks, and workshops by experts in various fields related to sound and performance.
All 16 organisations will collectively choose 48 musicians to participate in a mix of live performances, residencies, workshops and talks across member festivals and special events. A new pool of 48 artists will be selected subsequently for each of years two and three of the SHAPE initiative.
The SHAPE project will launch at CTM 2015 with a Meet and Greet on Thursday 29 January at the Projektraum of the Kunstquartier Bethanien. Presentations by several SHAPE organisations as well a selection of participating artists will give an insight into the upcoming year of activities, musical projects, and beyond. All interested artists, professionals and the general public are welcome to come meet SHAPE coordinators and musicians!
A selection of SHAPE artists will also perform at CTM 2015.
