Miso Music Portugal

Miso Music Portugal


Continuing its policy of promoting and encouraging musical creation, Miso Music Portugal runs a programme of artistic residencies in LEC (Lab for Electroacoustic Creation). The composers chosen for the residency are to create a new electroacoustic piece for tape, lasting approximately 5 to 15 minutes. LEC provides composers not only with an electroacoustic music creation studio, but also a rehearsal studio with multi-channel diffusion system. The residencies give composers the opportunity to present their work in concert, performed by the Loudspeaker Orchestra during the Miso Music Portugal Season or the Música Viva Festival. All of the ulterior presentations of the work must mention LEC as the context of its creation.

LEC establishes partnerships with several foreign studios offering Portuguese composers the opportunity to make residencies abroad.

Every year the Miso Music Portugal Electroacoustic Studio (LEC) accepts applications for four artistic residencies from Portuguese and foreign composers.


The works created within the residency will be presented at the Miso Music Portugal Concert Season or the Música Viva Festival with the Miso Music Portugal Loudspeaker Orchestra.
