This album, the fourth of the series, features all the winners of the Call for Electroacoustic Works 2019, launched to discover composers that use technology to conceive, manipulate and create new imaginative and unexpected sounds, music and compositions.
The nine composers who are featured are (in order of playlist): Leah Reid, Benjamin Montgomery, João Pedro Oliveira, Meghan Dineen, Daniel Mayer, Greg A Steinke, Nicola Fumo Frattegiani.
In an age where music genres and sound design become more and more blurred, the ten tracks include pure electronic works, works that mix acoustic instruments and electronic and works with voice, electronic and instruments. Each of the compositions presented offers a distinctive and clear perspective of today possibilities, making use of advanced structures, sound manipulations and various combinations of timbre and sound design.
The tracklist includes:
01. Sk(etch) by Leah Reid
02. Machine by Benjamin Montgomery
03. Dark Energy by João Pedro Oliveira
04. Evangelium Campane by Maeghan Dineen
05. Matter 1 by Daniel Mayer
06 – 09. Four Desultory Episodes for Oboe by Greg A Steinke
10. Banlieue cuivrée by Nicola Fumo Frattegiani
The quality of these works should excite and inspire the audience, the experts and the more curious alike, offering a view of the 21st Century electroacoustic music panorama, an intriguing land, vastly unexplored, rich of exciting sound investigations that hopefully many others will start to enjoy and follow, an art-form full of passionate composers and performers that can grow in size and popularity in the coming years.
Gràcia Territori Sonor
This is the album with the eighth global call for Microtopies. The Microtopies are sonic miniatures that shape a special edition of Radio Música i Geografía (Ràdio Gràcia FM, Barcelona), the weekly radio program by Gràcia Territori Sonor.
The aim is to make a sonic route through a map of randomly assigned events, since the pieces received have been included in strict order of reception.
This year have been received 69 pieces from 11 countries.
Now, we invite you to take this journey. You will enjoy the maximum quality of sound recorded by the authors. Don’t listen to them by your computer loudspeakers but rather plug them in a decent sound system or put on good headphones otherwise you will miss a lot of sounds and frequencies...

Selected composition "Sequenze"
ed. Viaindustriae publishing
“La carta sonora degli Orti di San Pietro” (edited by Viaindustriae Sound with the contribution of Regione Umbria – Umbrialibri 2015 and 2016, in collaboration with the Fonoteca Trotta, the University of Perugia University’s Center for Scientific Museums and the Department of Agrarian, Food and Environmental Sciences in Perugia).
“La carta sonora degli Orti di San Pietro” was produced during UmbriaLibri 2015 and 2016, during the ninth and tenth edition of Manufatto in Situ, art and landscape workshop curated by Viaindustriae applied in the Medieval Garden and in the and Didactic-Social Garden of San Pietro, in collaboration with Fonoteca Regionale Trotta, the University Center for the Scientific Museums – University of Perugia and with the Department of Agricultural, Food and Environmental Sciences. The workshop hosted 18 young visual and sound artists and 5 visiting artists, from different backgrounds, who recorded and mapped, documented and reinvented the places of the three gardens and their social relations. The outcome was a site-specific live set, “Campestre, mimetica“. From this experience, viaindustriae published the first “Quaderno di Campo” together with an audio CD, as a prototype of an editorial series in collaboration with the Fonoteca Trotta. This mapping configures and proposes a more systematic regional intervention starting from the Carta Sonora model to outline geography of interesting “acoustic places” in terms of soundscape/soundscape/listening. On the cover of the editorial research, Eugenio Faina, founder of the Istituto Superiore Agrario di San Pietro, created from the beginning (1894) as a space for pedagogical “experimentation”.
