Two soundwalks to know Braga by listening

31 May, 2021

The AUDIRE project team promotes two soundwalks in Braga on June 14 and June 28 (19h00-20h00). The activity is free and open to the community, but limited to the registration of 10 participants.

There are no special requirements. This will be a light walking. The willingness to listen to the environment while walking is enough.

The soundwalks will be guided by the sound artist Cláudia Martinho.



Online meeting: SOUND, ART AND MEDIA

18 February, 2021


Sound is a physical vibration that informs our daily experience. But it is also a language through which we also express our rational and affective experience. Thinking of sound as a connection and relationship, as an expression of flow and time, the Audire project team and Sopcom’s Radio and Sound Media working group invite researchers, professionals, students and artists to an online meeting, about the power of sound in communication.


How does sound impact the way we see the world? Can sound art promote engaged and active listening? How relevant is sound within a visual media culture? In addition to a plenary conference, this meeting also has space for the presentation of scientific works, and an online exhibition of sound artworks is also expected.


The event takes place on April 8 (only in the afternoon), entirely in English. The call for papers closes on March 15.

World Radio Day

On February 13 (Saturday), we signalled the World Radio Day with a conversation about a medium that is both practical and magical. From 6pm, we joined Ana Galvão, Radio Renascença, Rita Colaço, Antena 1, and Luís Oliveira, Antena 3, in a Zoom session open to all to celebrate this date instituted by UNESCO 10 years ago.


To discuss the concept of sound art

19 November, 2020


The researchers Madalena Oliveira and Cláudia Martinho, from the AUDIRE project team, are participating in the VI International Congress on Cultures. In the communication that they will present at the table “Memory, art, museology and cultural expressions”, the authors seek to question the artistic dimension of sound productions, the aestheticisation of listening, the vocation of museums and the reconfiguration of the concept of exhibition itself.


November 20, at 12pm, online.
