Sonoscopia, along with the Crónica label, form a long-standing epicenter of experimental music in Porto, Portugal, which is quickly being overrun by tourism, gentrification, and high rent – with all of the accompanying devastating artistic and cultural side effects.
Sonoscopia’s recent beautifully designed box set (and pay what you want digital download) is the culmination of a year’s worth of curation and celebration of DIY experimental music production and live performance.
To me, it represents more than just a cool experimental music release. It represents an organic anarchistic sonic antibiotic for the exponentially expanding din of vacuous aural propaganda emanating from an exponentially expanding commercial infection.
