– With more than 60 artists from different parts of the world, the Festival will offer an updated panorama of the Sound Art and Electronic Experimentation scene.
The official programming and access to Santo Noise 2020 can be followed through its social networks Facebook and Instagram (@santonoise).
The 11th edition of Santo Noise will be based on a platform of high-quality streaming audio-visual concerts, which we call “Audio-Rooms”, through shows of high standing within the electronic and acoustic experimental spectrum. This virtual platform is designed to give visibility to collaborative projects, works of musicians, audiovisual artists, producers, local and worldwide sound managers. The 11th edition of the Santo Noise Festival is conceived as a commitment to experimental sound. Its local and global projection explores the current intersections within experimental and electronic music. Through this cross-pollination and meeting of artistic perspectives we go beyond the limits that political and cultural maps use to distinguish people and ears. We propose a fresh reading of the complex world of experimental sound. This11th edition is the result of many years of joint work between independent producers and different cultural institutions linked to art. With a large trajectory supporting noise and sound experimentation, Santo Noise gathers artistic communities and sound producers from Canada, Colombia, Brazil, Chile, Bolivia, Peru, Argentina, Spain, France and Argentina.
But…what is Noise music?
In Spanish also known as ruidismo, it is a category of music that includes a wide range of musical styles and creative practices based on sounds, which have noise as a primary aspect. This type of music tends to question the distinction made in conventional musical practices between musical and non-musical sound. Noise music can include acoustically or electronically generated noise and traditional and non-conventional musical instruments. It can also incorporate live sound from machines, non-musical vocal techniques, physically manipulated audio media, processed sound recordings, field recording, computer-generated noise, and other randomly produced electronic signals such as saturation, coupling, static noise, whistling, and humming. More generally, noise music can contain aspects such as improvisation, extended techniques, cacophony, and indetermination, and in many cases, the conventional use of melody, harmony, rhythm, and pulse is often dispensed with.

Luxando. The first thoughts that came to mind when we were planning this program were how in these troubled times, living with the feeling that the future is what life used to be, and at the same time, being compelled to think about new horizons of hope, imagining what has not happened but should. And, combined with Audre Lorde’s quote “Poetry is the way we help give name to the nameless so it can be thought”, became point of entry and exit. How to give up control to allow encounters to produce unexpected or unthought results? From the archives of CFMDC in Toronto, we selected six experimental films made in celluloid 35, 16, and Super 8mm, which share the poetics of embodiment, discontinuity, the indeterminate, analog glitch, perturbations, gaps, scratches, repetitions, chaos, noise. And, to provoke an encounter, we invited six South American artists who share these poetic frictions, in their sound practice and asked them to respond to the impact on their terms, to bring forth new possibilities.
“LUXANDO”, means to dislocate, to get out of the frame, to get out of the structure, to get out of oneself, out of juncture.
