About

Former Netlabel and slowly becoming Media Channel featuring streaming shows devoted to sound art, field recordings, electronic and ambient music on Twitch.tv. After main years promoting, producing and supporting artists from all over the world, Audiotalaia shifts its strategy and focuses efforts on sustaining a live streaming channel featuring live concerts, performances, talks, interviews and online projects based on streaming as the focal media and as a framework for sound and digital creativity.

It is also the home of a 10 days workshop / artists residency on the Catalan Countryside called Audiotalaia Summer Camp, an event thought to be a formative and educational program for young artists willing to develop their creativity from a sound perspective.

We also host online courses and workshops on our Discord Channel.

History.

Audiotalaia is an online platform, a netlabel devoted to produce, curate, support and disseminate works around experimental music, sound creativity and beyond. Audiotalaia has been operating from Catalonia, Scotland and currently in Valencia. The label has three main catalogues: The Digital CatalogueThe Physical Catalogue and The Live Recordings Archive.

The Digital Catalogue operated as a netlabel, releasing works under Creative Commons Licenses free to download. This archive holds the majority of releases on the label. Between 2009 and 2019 the catalogue released works on a monthly basis. The albums were released in Mp3, WAV, AIFF and Lossless formats.

The Physical Catalogue it has been dedicated to release physical limited editions of curated works by different artists. The catalogue has a unique design and packaging for each of the releases conforming a collection of works on a wide range of styles and aesthetics. The editions are all hand-crafted, numbered and released in CD and CDr formats.

The Live Recordings Archive is a repository and testimony of the majority of events held by Audiotalaia in Valencia (Spain). It serves as chronological archive spreading abroad the activities organized and curated in various venues, festivals and concert series all under the influence area of the label since 2010. It also hosts the recordings of LOM an electronic music ensemble working in Valencia between 2010 and 12. All recordings are hosted between our Bandcamp page and our Mixcloud account, free to stream.

Audiotalaia is also an umbrella for the curatorial activities of Edu Comelles in Valencia. Since 2010 Audiotalaia hosts the archived outcome of concerts, talks, workshops and performances organized in Valencia as part of various festivals or venues across town and the country. Those are Ciclo Herzios (2010-12), Off_Herzios (2012-13), Off_Hz La Gallera Suena (2014) and Espai Sonor (2016-...).
