Composer, teacher, conductor, journalist and lecturer, Manuel Faria (1916-1983) was one of the ecclesiastical figures that devoted his life to composition in the twentieth century in Portugal.

Committed renovator of religious music, Manuel Faria left hundreds of sacred music compositions, including songs, masses and motets, but also other works for orchestra, pieces for piano, organ and songs for voice and piano. At the same time, he wrote profusely and held conferences on liturgical music and on the need for its renewal.

He gave special attention to the word and its articulation with music. Through his harmonic language, Manuel Faria searched for the maximum expressiveness and, at the same time, the clearest way of giving sense to the text.

Passionate for the voice and the popular song, he knew how to integrate in its language: religion, popular music and other references of European music. Prolific, curious and intuitive composer, Manuel Faria was born 100 years ago. Occasion to remember the man and his work.

Premiere of
A guerra santa
by daniel SCHvetz
A new work of Daniel Schvetz, A Guerra Santa ("The Holy War"), for ensemble of woodwinds and narrator will be premiered on 16 May, at 19:30 in the Escola Superior de Música de Lisboa (ESML).

The original text, La guerre sainte, is a prose-poem that was written in 1940, in the beggining of the Second World War. It is a reflection about the "inner war" of the poet and the potency of word and poetry, his "small weapon", in a struggle "within himself". The premiere of A Guerra Santa will be made by Camerata de Sopros Silva Dionísio, under the direction of Alberto Roque, with narration of the poet and performer Nuno Moura. The concert will take place at the Viana da Mota auditorium of the ESML, in Lisbon.

Rui Dias in Braga
Rui Dias, composer edited by MIC.PT, premiered in Braga, the last day of April, its Urban Algae Folly instalation, open until July 2016.

This kind of installation was first experimented at Expo Milan 2015, and it has been adapted to the context of the city of Braga, working as a "test platform for a future vision of biodigital architecture for the city." The work generates structures and dynamic sonic textures, and explores the notion of sound as an organic entity, with its own life, which transforms, develops and reacts to external elements. Urban Algae Folly is a collaboration between ecoLogicStudio, the GNRation and the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory that through the "Scale Travels" program, intended to cross nanotechnology with the media arts.
Sound creation by Carlos Alberto augusto at the Ethnology museum
Carlos Alberto Augusto designed the sound involvement for the exhibition Territory Surveys: Landscape and Settlement, released in April and open until October this year, at the National Museum of Ethnology. The exhibition puts in dialog multiple artistic and scientific perspectives about Portugal since the late nineteenth century to the present. The composer explained to the MIC.PT that this is not a "background sound", but rather "a complex composition that besides creating a sound environment, is made of sound documents (some of them unique) which have to do with the exhibition theme itself."
