IDA Radio is happy to announce the open call for a sound residency for musicians, music producers and sound artists coming from the Baltic States and Nordic countries. The residency will take place in different parts of Estonia in autumn 2021.

Four artists will be selected who will work together for two months in September & October 2021. There are no restrictions or obligations, but we expect the artists to share their process and possible outcome at the end of the residency – a new piece of music, performance or something completely different in the field of sound-art. That said, we will provide an inspiring program for the residents throughout their stay. We encourage professionals as well as emerging sound artists to apply.

Application deadline: 25.06.2021
Duration: September & October 2021

The first two weeks of the residency program will be covered by a number of workshops hosted by local & international artists, followed by a two week mini-residency at project space MAAJAAM in an old farm in Estonian countryside. The fifth week will be free and the residents will meet again on week six for a week-long “top secret project” in Tartu. The last two weeks will be spent in a recording studio in Tallinn.

IDA is partnering up with two festivals – Intonal in Malmö & Skaņu Mežs in Riga. The four residents will perform their outcome at named festivals in 2022.
