The 2021 OSA call is open to producers who want to measure themselves against the concept of “dare”, experiment and co-create in order to bring new sound visions.
The challenge is to recode ancestral sounds electronically, by creating an unpublished track from a repertoire of open source in free access. Participants will be requested to produce an original track based on the sound samples belonging to the rituals of the Lucanian tradition (bagpipes, cowbells, cupa cupa..) collected in the OSA Library, developed during the Open Sound Festival in the framework of the Matera European Capital of Culture 2019 official program.
The OSA call winner (named OSA Producer) will take part in the 2021 Open Sound Academy edition, promoted by Multietnica Association in collaboration with Sugar Music. The winner will have the opportunity to live a unique experience of co-design and co-creation of a live show called OSA 2.1 in close collaboration with the 2021 Guest Producers, Mattia Barro “SPLENDORE” and Marco “FORESTA” from the IVREATRONIC Collective as well as Matilde Ferrari aka “PLASTICA”.
The three Guest Producers together with the OSA Producer, led by Alioscia Bisceglia (Casino Royale) as Open Sound Ambassador, will take part in an artistic residency in Basilicata from 23th to 29th August, in order to work on the production of the OSA 2.1 live show. The show preview – which includes also the participation of musicians of the Lucanian tradition – will be staged on 28th August in San Severino Lucano, in the Pollino National Park within the 25° edition of the Pollino Music Festival (PZ).
The show OSA 2.1 national première will take place in November 2021, in Milan during the Linecheck Music Meeting and Festival.
Participation is free!
