RWM Working Group residency at Willem Twee Studios
The RWM Working Group is made up of a team of individuals who participate, produce and collaborate on different projects at Ràdio Web MACBA. Since 2016, this collective has held monthly meetings to slow down their creative processes and share methodologies, interests and ideas in person. Together they have developed sound libraries, held public workshops and participated in artist residencies.
Following the example of previous experiences – first as individual residencies at INA GRM (France) in 2020-21 and later on as a collective 6-month residency at Phonos (Spain) in 2022 – three members of the Ràdio Web MACBA Working Group have been invited to a new residency project, this time an intensive week-long collective event taking place at the Willem Twee Studios’ state-of-the-art facilities in Den Bosch (The Netherlands).
Although Tiago Pina, Albert Tarrats and Roc Jiménez de Cisneros have, as individuals, followed a consistent trajectory in music making, instrument building and sound experimentation, this residency serves as an invitation for them to work together, in dialogue with each other and with the vintage synthesisers from the 70s and 80s available at the Willem Twee facilities. The common goal is to create a library of interesting and challenging music to be used for future podcasts on Ràdio Web MACBA. This project will be an open conversation, with plans for team members from the Willem Twee Studios to play a role beyond that of mere facilitators. In summary, the residency offers a space for interaction, generosity and exchange, which we hope will take on a life of its own.
This residency is a co-production between Ràdio Web MACBA, Sonic Acts and Paradiso within New Perspectives for Action. A Re-Imagine Europe project, co-financed by the European Union.
Participants: Roc Jiménez de Cisneros, Tiago Pina, Albert Tarrats
