TEKHNÉ Music and Sound Art Research Residencies


tekhnē is a collaborative project in which six European organisations aim to explore the emancipatory potential of technology in music and sound art. By engaging critically and creatively with technology, and by putting the focus on the user rather than the developer, technologies and methodologies can be demystified and lead to more autonomous mindsets towards the tools around us.

Many moments of social and artistic change have been historically brought about by shifts in technology. Taking this as inspiration, the project seeks to contribute to the wider ongoing conversations around technology and sound cultures. tekhnē will provide a platform for creatives and cultural workers via a combination of research, experimentation, creation, education, and dissemination offered in the form of residencies, commissions, workshops, performances, exhibitions, talks, publications, and radio broadcasts.

The project aims for a balance between theoretical reflection and practical implementation, providing experiences to people who wish to interact in inventive ways with different types of technology. tekhnē aims to support a more inclusive field, and to use sound and music as a vehicle to this end.

GMEA offers two residencies of two weeks in 2024 in Albi, France. A per diem of 30€/day as well as technical and research support is offered.

TRAFO offers one residency of three weeks in December 2023 in Szczecin, Poland. A fee of 1000€ as well as technical and research support is offered. This residency specifically invites artists who would like to share their practice with the broader audience of Trafo contemporary art centre and students of the Academy of Arts.

Q-O2 offers six residencies of six weeks in 2024 in Brussels, Belgium. A per diem of 25€/day as well as technical and research support is offered.

deadline: 30 September 2023
