SoCCoS is a residency and research network engaging with exploratory music, sound art and culture. It provides residency opportunities via exchange of artists, cultural workers and theorists. Through the residencies SoCCoS offers time and space away from known environment and everyday routines, to discover new sites, different cultures of sound art and source materials, to develop special skills and expand artistic networks.

The project focuses on language, differences in urban and rural environment, and work with local communities. It practises a structuralist approach in relation to sound art residencies, connecting different sound art practices, geo-social contexts and art production typologies. It has a strong focus on research, elaborating on geography, culture, sound, language and site-specificity. It will engage a new generation of artists through micro-residencies.

The activities, residencies, artworks and related research will be documented on the website and finalized in a book publication.

SoCCoS is shared by the organisations Hai Art (FI), Binaural/Nodar(PT), DISK Berlin (DE), A-I-R Laboratory (PL) and Q-O2 (BE). Associated partners are Bambun (IT), MoKS (EE), Kumaria/Medea Electronique (EL) and De School van Gaasbeek (BE). Terms and conditions are slightly different for each organizations.

We offer individual residencies for artists and micro-residencies for students for which you can apply by presenting yourself and/or make us a proposal and send it to info@soccos.eu.
