Each artist participating in the Matters_ residency is asked to leave a (sound) track, of a duration no less than 5 and no longer than 15 min long (exceptions are possible upon mutual agreement), which will be part of the compilation album to be released by the end of the year 2018. The album will consist only of the works prepared during the residency period (the final track must be delivered by the end of the residency). 
Each artist is asked to create a moment of public sharing during their residency period: it might be a sound workshop or a live concert. The form thereof is discussed and confirmed prior to the arrival of the resident.
