    2017 Season

    2017 was an year of economic retraction due to the deepen of the political crisis and the presidential elections to happen in October. A great number of cultural events, some of then very traditional events, had been cancelled all around Brasil in the last two years.
    Because of economical and political crisis, we had to rethink and reshape our financial strategy and production basis, decreasing the size and number of projects, cutting staff and seeking support for co-productions, nationaly and internationally. We had to stop for a diagnosis and re alignment.

    The Festival seeks to articulate national and international networks of cooperation, from composers and ensembles to music festivals, labels and initiatives that are searching for new models in classical and experimental music today.

    The strange music concept builds a special territory for innovative creation, subverting the traditional structures exploring new set ups and occupying unusual spaces, proposing singular new connections between artists and audience.

    2017 Artistic Highlights

    Focusing our attentions in Festival Música Estranha, we implemented an enfasis in residence projects, proposing deeper artistic collaborations also with visual artists. In 2017 Música Estranha Festival we had two major international residence projects: Brazil/Denmark, melting down two ensembles – We Like We from Copenhagen, Denmark, and Mawaca from São Paulo, Brazil in new compositions; and Brazil/Argentina, putting together an argentinian composer, a french light designer and a brazilian video artist to create a new piece for the Festival. The great artistic output we’ve had from the two experiences has proved to be the way we have to go point to the Festival’s vocation.
