Located in the heart of Serra da Estrela, in Seia (Portugal), the residency consists in a very modest lodge and access to the studio located in Conservatório de Música de Seia – Collegium Musicum, supported by the Institute of Ethnomusicology (FCSH-UNL), integrated in the Festival Dias de Música Electroacústica.
The studio is equipped with an 8 channel system Mackie Thump TH-15A a with Pro Tools system. The residents often prefer to bring their laptops and interfaces. However, a computer with Pro Tools and an interface can be provided. The facilities are designed to offer a multi channel system, and not so much for recordings. However, recording equipment can also be provided. The access to the studio is limited to the schedule of Conservatório de Música de Seia – Collegium Musicum (usually from Monday to Saturday, 10 am – 7 pm, with exceptions).
The guests are usually invited to present their work to the community, either in concerts, conferences, masterclasses, installations or by other means that may be considered.

To apply, the artist should write a message to: diasdemusicaelectroacustica (at) and propose a project, requirements, proposed presentations to the community and proposed dates.

Professor and the festival’s director Jaime Reis may be available as a tutor and to give lessons to the invited artists.

Letters may be provided for the artists interested in applying to their own initiative in finding funding.

This project is supported by: DGArtes (Direcção-Geral das Artes) / Secretary of State of Culture – Portugal; Instituto de Etnomusicologia – Centro de Estudos de Música e Dança (INET-md), Câmara Municipal de Seia and Collegium Musicum – Conservatório de Música de Seia.
