Electronic music

and digital art festival

About

In the year Semibreve reaches 10 editions, we were forced to think of an alternative edition, which takes on the idea of seclusion to present a program to be enjoyed at distance, without neglecting the participation of the community in which we operate.

 

The 2020 edition of the Semibreve will take place on the weekend of 24 and 25 October at the Monastery of São Martinho de Tibães, a monastery built in the 17th century, with a program based on sound works specially commissioned for the occasion, roundtables aimed at discussing music and sound art nowadays, audiovisual installations, artistic residencies and workshops for families.

Online Programme

Except for the roundtables, all the contents will be continuously available throughout the weekend on the Monastery of Tibães.

 

À excepção das mesas redondas, todos os conteúdos estarão continuamente disponíveis durante o fim de semana no Mosteiro de Tibães.

Award

German artists Merani Schilcher and Vinzenz Aubry won this year’s edition with “Unknown Territories – Searching for Islands”, an interactive installation that compares islands with sand shaped by the user hands, matching the outlines of the given body in real time with 75,000 satellite images of islands all over the planet.

 

Semibreve Award is sponsored by EDIGMA, a Portuguese company leader in the development of interactive experiences, multi-touch technology and digital signage projects.

 

The work will be exhibited during the 10th edition of the festival, which this year will take place in a 17th century monastery and through the festival's website

The alternative edition of Semibreve 2020 will take place simultaneously online at our website and at the Monastery of Tibães, in Braga, both free of charge. Access to the Monastery will incur a ticket with a cost of 6 euros, that will revert entirely to support the renewal and maintenance of this historical building and transaction fees. The entry will be limited to the capacity defined by the health authorities at the time of the festival. Each visitor can purchase a ticket that provides two hours access to the monastery, so the program and the place can be safely experienced.
