Workshop - Soundsystem concept+info
19 jul / 18h30 - 20h30
One of the projects in this edition of Walk&Talk is Soundsystem, a system of mobile speakers inspired by the Soundsystem culture born in the 1950s in Jamaica. These systems reflect the history of social and popular music and human and sound migrations but also allow the creation of musical communities and marginal cultures while proposing new forms of production and consumption of dance music.
In the context of Walk&Talk, Soundsystem will circulate around the island of São Miguel, hosting concerts, DJ sets, and listening sessions. It is both a programming device and an artistic and engineering object, developed by Sérgio Coutinho and Francisco Antão. In this workshop, they will share the bases so that all interested people can create their Soundsystem and, hopefully, expand this community on the island.
