Festival Som Riscado returns to Loulé

The four-day event features light, sound and musical entertainment for all ages between November 24 and 27.

The city of Loulé is hosting the seventh edition of the Som Riscado Festival from November 24 to 27, an event seeking an innovative approach to artistic experimentation with sound, music and image.

As per previous editions, the event’s concept will remain the same, offering mainly free shows in six venues within the municipality.

The Som Riscado Festival kicks off on November 24 with ‘Sublumia’ by Sonoscopy, a sound and visual installation, which will be on for the duration of the festival at Palácio Gama Lobo. The show consists of an installation of objects using sound capture and light projection from and onto several liquids and electromechanical elements.

On the 25th, Teatro da Didascália presents “Soundcheck”, an interactive concert, at Cineteatro Louletano, at 14:30. This session is aimed at the school community. It will be repeated on the 26th, at 21:00, for the general public.

Also on the 25th, the “70.ª Semana”, an audiovisual opera by the DME Project (Electroacoustic Music Days), will take to the stage of the Casa da Cultura de Loulé.
