As part of the #NoLA2020-21 ongoing project, sound creators from different countries and adventurous aesthetics are invited to each send a live audio session (like an intimate concert to share online with an unknown public) this will be illustrated with a fixed visual as well as a few lines of presentation of the piece and a short presentation of the artist. The emphasis here is on the travelling quality of the sound work and the mental images that it can generate in the listener).
From mid-December 2020 until February 2021, the European Pepinieres and Transcultures will announce, each week, the launch of a session (a continuous piece – which can be in several movements – of around thirty minutes ) from a different artist. These intimate sessions will be available on the bandcamp of Transonic (independent label for differentiated sound creation, produced by Transcultures). Upcoming No Lockdown Transonic Winter Sessions.
No Lockdown Art | #NoLA2020
Within the framework of its new Creaconnections program, Transcultures, in partnership with the European Pepinieres of Creation, launched the No Lockdown Art – #NoLA2020 action to support the re-activitism of Belgian and international artists who initiated, during the period containment, interesting audio, video, multimedia projects online and freely disseminate their singularities and poetic glances to the curious connected.
In this sadly unique period (but likely to herald other disasters), many artists of all origins refused the quarantine of the shared expression. They express both a need to connect with another (connected) audience and to get out of both fear and paralysis as well as from the “all in the ego”.
Desiring to join this libertarian dynamic and give support and visibility to differentiated works online, Transcultures has launched a support program open to artists for short, medium or long term projects. In addition, in partnership with the European Pepinieres of Creation, a call for No Lockdown Art (#NoLA2020) projects was successfully launched in mid-April 2020. This initiative was aiming and still is to actively support many initiatives of artists and designers of cultural projects. Their creativity -stimulated by the turbulences of our viral world – is precious to them and to us!
Coordinated by Transcultures, Transonic is an independent label dedicated to electronic, organic, poetic sounds… and other unlabelled. Transonic produce sound objects, specific events (concerts, performances, showcases…), hybrid works and events (installations, conferences, interdisciplinary collaborations…) in Belgium and abroad.
This desire to complement the distribution channel of the music published by the label through the diffusion of the artists it hosts, or the talents of which Transonic feels close, builds on the experience and network of Transcultures (Center for Digital and Sound Cultures, Belgium), which is its producer.
