PRISMA SESSIONS is an initiative born from the will to escape musical canons, giving primacy to creation. Thus, with the hospitality and support of Prisma, Lisbon will have, two Tuesdays per month, a space for exploration. In order to manage everyone’s interest and the smooth running of each session, attendance will be by invitation and limited to 9 musicians, with two slots reserved for new people who identify with the nature of the project. This method aims to generate a rotation of people and styles, something we consider key to the success of this experience.
To participate, you only have to talk to Gonçalo Madama (@m.a.dam.a) to show your interest and meet two requirements
- Be open to everything – from jazz to noise, from soundscapes to electronica;
- To gradually explore silence at the end of each session, between 10pm and 11pm.
Depending on each one’s background and interest, a curatorial process will be carried out, so that each session will be unique and unpredictable, both for the musicians and the audience. In short, we seek to create a community of musicians – who might not otherwise cross paths – with the goal of questioning the jam paradigm.
