In the year SEMIBREVE reaches 10 editions, the festival is forced to think of an alternative edition, which departs from the idea of seclusion to present a diverse program to be enjoyed at a safe distance. SEMIBREVE returns for its first ever digital edition, inviting participates to interact virtually with exclusive sound works and performances, specially commissioned for SEMIBREVE 2020.
The 2020 edition of the SEMIBREVE will take place on the weekend of 24 and 25 October online, via the festival’s website, and locally within the confines of the Monastery of São Martinho de Tibães.
At the monastery, you will be able to find roundtables aimed at discussing music and sound art nowadays, audiovisual installations by the EDIGMA SEMIBREVE Award and EDIGMA SEMIBREVE Scholar winners, a workshop for families in partnership with Circuito / Braga Media Arts, and new music from Jim O’Rourke, Tyondai Braxton, Beatriz Ferreyra, Keith Fullerton Whitman, Jessica Ekomane, Kara-Lis Coverdale and Ana da Silva, specially commissioned for the occasion.
