SHAPE is a platform for innovative music and audiovisual art from Europe, co-funded by the Creative Europe programme. It consists of 16 festivals and art centres active within the ICAS – International Cities of Advanced Sound network and aims to support, promote, and exchange innovative and aspiring musicians and interdisciplinary artists with an interest in sound. SHAPE also attempts to provide audiences and professionals with insightful lectures, talks, and workshops by experts in various fields related to sound and performance.
Each year, the 16 associations involved collectively choose forty-eight creatively strong artists and musicians to participate in a mix of live performances, residencies, workshops, and talks across festivals and special events. SHAPE-supported artists at Unsound 2019 include Balázs Pándi, Betty, Erwan Keravec, Jonathan Uliel Saldanha of HHY, Lutto Lento, Lyra Pramuk, Mentos Gulgendo and Violet.
