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.

Sincerely yours,

Dave Wesley – Portugal
