The aim of the residency is to bring expert practitioners and practising sound artists, composers and performers from varied backgrounds together to create and experience new work in a supportive and stimulating environment.

Estalagem will be hosting the fifth Estalagem da Ponta do Sol Residency for Contemporary Music and Electronics Ponta do Sol, on the Island of Madeira.

Under the guidance of the Invited Artists, participants have the opportunity to work collaboratively, to present work (or prepared repertoire), to attend masterclasses, concerts and talks, in the stunning environment of Ponta do Sol, with accommodation and meals provided by Estalgem da Ponta do Sol. During the course of the residency there will be performances by the Invited Artists (including contemporary acoustic music as well as works with live electronics). Composers and performers are welcome to present their own work collaboratively and individually during the residency, as well as in more informal settings.

The residency is pleased to announce that the invited artists attending this year are Patricia Alessandrini (Stanford University); Robert Allison (Makers in Little Lisbon); Daiane Lopes da Silva (Kinetech Arts);
Sarah Westwood (Goldsmiths, University of London); and Weidong Yang (Kinetech Arts).
