ECOS LABS 2023
ECOS LABS 2023
ECOS Labs are an opportunity for emerging groups to receive personalized feedback on their artistic/social project and to learn how to interact in the international Early Music market. From ECOS Festival, we consider itessential to be able to offer emerging artists direct contact with key figures within the Early Music circuit, not only to reflect on the current state of the industry, but also to be able to generate proposals that adapt to current concerns and interests, reflecting on issues beyond the merely musical.
ECOS Labs are organized by Jorge Losana (Cantoría & ECOS Festival Director) and David Gutiérrez (Anacronía) and held in digital format, inviting promoters from R.E.M.A. (the European Network of Early Music), E.M.A. (Early Music America) and other distinguished institutions in which international festival programmers discuss and interact with ECOS emerging groups to address issues related to “Early Music and its value in the 21st century”. This is done under the firm belief that international andintergenerational dialogue is fundamental for our resident emerging ensembles to find their place in the Early Music scene and make sure their proposals are addressing current concerts. This year, the participating ensembles were Barbaroco (France/Spain), The Gardeners (Berlin), Entrebescant (Spain) and Flutes & Frets (UK).
This year, the title is “The Audience: what they seek, what they feel& what they remember” and three seminars will be held that willdeal with diversity, sustainability and the demographic challenge, and the role these concepts occupy in the day-to-day life of Early Music groups.
