WEAVING MUSIC FOR RADIO, BY LATIN AMERICAN WOMEN COMPOSERS, which received an award by the International Fund for the Promotion of Culture (IFPC) 2016, UNESCO. The project’s duration is 1 year (from April 2017 to March 2018).

 

The purpose of this project is to create a series of 3Radio Music Programs with artistic works by 8 Latin American Women Composers. Each program will present 2 original pieces by women composers. The Radio Program MUSICAOS, broadcasted by Federal University of Pelotas and Federal University of Paraná, will host the radio programs: <www.programa-musicaos.blogspot.com.br>. The project will also involve an interview with each composer, a concert with the works comissioned and a Forum for public and academic exchanges of ideas, in Brazil. 

Some partnerships already carried out for this project are: Federal University of Paraná, Espaço Cultural Capela Santa Maria (Fundação Cultural de Curitiba), Laboratório LaMuSa (Embap) and Sonora (Research Group on Women and Gender, ECA – USP).

 

The main goal of the project is to arouse new forms of perception and of understanding culture by embodying women’s Latin American voices as artworks. 

The conception of this work, as a whole, takes as a point of departure the idea that radio works can affect their listeners more directly and deeply, insofar as their predominant aural nature can be very appealing to the senses. That way, the work’s fragments, in being transformed by each person’s listening experience, remain a natural, energetic source for life reconfiguration and feedback.
