    Sound Development City has now officially "taken place" for the 5th time. We started out in #Madrid on September 6th and started saying goodbye on September 25th in #Casablanca.
    Our "Discoveries, In-Betweens and Some Conclusions" were shared on Saturday with collaborators, friends, followers, guests and alumni. The presentations gave insights into the artists' projects, the paths they took, the questions raised and somethimes also the decisions made. But still — this moment is nothing but another beginning: towards the continuation / transformation of the projects, the refelction of experiences made, and most of all: the newly created networks between the artists, and also the local communities.

    Our journey to and through our 2nd expedition city, Casablanca, wouldn't have been possible withouth the insights, advice and never-ending support of Imane Barakat, Sofiane Benkhassala and Zakaria Ait Wakrim. Also, we thank La parallele for sharing their beautiful space with us, Le Vertigo for letting us bring music to their stage and sharing the last dance, Boultek, Centre de musiques actuelles for hosting the Café Europa, Casa Mémoire for the insights and Hotel Central for the view.

    We will be publishing more images, audio, and texts soon — here, and on the project's website www.sound-development-city.com

    The Sound Development City 2016 artists are:
    — Dan Allon
    — Vincent Charlebois
    — Bernadette La Hengst
    — Sasha Kurmaz
    — Ari-Pekka Leinonen
    — Brent Meistre
    — Luka + Jela (Jelena Mijic)
    — Agnieszka Pędziwiatr + Rafał Pierzyński
    — Youmna Saba
    — Chris Wood

    The journey from #Madrid to #Casablanca took the Sound Development City artists through Granada, Sevilla, Cadiz, Caños de Meca, Algeciras, Tarifa, Ceuta, Tanger, Féz, Arzila — to forrests, monuments, stranger's homes and kitchens. We have now touched down in Casablanca. The project work continues — glimpes can be caught soon. These and other stories can be found on the project's website: http://sound-development-city.com/

    Open endings.The moment has come to move on, to hold on to thoughts in the making, and give unprocessed impressions space to unfold. The Sound Development City 2016 artists an the team have left #Madrid, our first expedition city, towards #Casablanca, where everyone will arrive on Saturday, September 17, and continue working on the individual projects until September 24.

    The first 8 days of the expedition were spent in Madrid, a city that welcomed us most warmly and gave us the chance to explore the project ideas and put them to the test both for ourselves, and for a public to observe and challenge. Thank you for taking your time to meet us jump into the artists' processes by joining our workshops, events and performances.

    All of this wouldn't have been possible without the huge support and coordination by Cristina Anglada and Ana Martínez Fernández. THANK YOU!

    Also, we would like to thank Ramón Mateos for letting us use Nadie Nunca Nada No as our headquarters. Juan Gómez Alemán for hosting DIVAS' project at La JUAN Gallery. Julio Cubillos for opening the gates of La Tabacalera and printing the #sdc2016 bags. Lucia Casani and her team for the most valuable support at La Casa Encendida. And Enrique Borrajeros for making Bernadette La Hengst and Dan Allon's recording session at Fantompower studio possible.

    Thank you to Raisa Maudit and Zony Gómez of Storm AndDrunk Espacio, our jury member Gema Melgar of Matadero Madrid, and Manuel Segade of CA2M Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo who took their time to talk to us about Madrid, the creative scene and its' potential and needs — the results will be aired on our online radio Gap Station soon.

    And, last but definitely not least, Jonay PMatos / Afay Mg followed us through this intense phase of exploration in the city and documented the individual journeys. Some of his photos are in the SDC2016 Madrid album re-posted hereby. Thanks to Jonay, it's been more than great!

    We hope that Ari-Pekka Leinonen's Friend — professor of time — can twist and turn things for us, that we can continue to grow the network and newly-found friendships. See you around!
