The 2023 edition of the International Electroacoustic Music Festival “MUSLAB” begins. MUSLAB is an International Electroacoustic Music Exhibition that aims to gather and disseminate the creation and sound exploration of artists from different countries of the world and promote the creative process by taking artistic creation as a multidisciplinary meeting point and communication point between artists.
We seek to give artists access to new forums of representation and create an international communication network through the development of different cultural activities, multidisciplinary training in new technologies and sound art concerts to bring new audiences closer to contemporary creation, as well as encourage through art, respect for the diversity of cultural expressions and the values of coexistence.
The Exhibition is accompanied by a series of workshops, training sessions and interdisciplinary conferences given at various levels, and through the competency-based training approach, promoted by UNESCO, these workshops are linked to the use of new technological tools and focused on the development of complex capacities that allow students to think and act in various fields, with a STEAM pedagogical approach where we seek to gather knowledge in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics that point to the joint resolution of the problems we currently face in a comprehensive way, adequate convenient and adaptable.
The courses are taught at different levels. MUSLAB was created in 2014 by the CaminArt association, since then, the exhibition has been carried out in collaboration with and 36 cultural institutions in Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, Peru, Portugal, Spain, England and France, which has positioned MUSLAB as a platform Iberoamerican culture since 2017.
