Confine aperto

Confine aperto represents an open set of musical expressions that confront various practices through an improvisational and experimental character. The actuality and originality of handling music matter includes the research of understanding sounds, issues linked to music communication and opening technological potentials. Risky and often unverified combinations guarantee liveliness, coincidences, unpredictability and openness.

Open Call 2020 

After fifteen years, we are changing the concept of the cycle.

Confine aperto is reinventing itself.
Confine aperto is once again entering into the unknown.
Confine aperto is opening (itself).

It is opening a space for musicians who are ready to go into the unpredictable
