A Grande Pesca Sonora é um projecto de criação e performance multidisciplinar que traz para um lugar comum as artes nas diferentes vertentes. Tendo como alicerce criativo a música através da improvisação e criação em grupo e abrangendo também o trabalho de artes visuais (livro de artista), literário, dramatúrgico (produção e recolha de textos, encenação) e de movimento (dança, coreografia, gesto), a GPS é um somatório multidisciplinar numa tentativa de dar vida àquilo que entendemos que é jazz, educação e arte. A GPS culmina num espetáculo que integra os diferentes grupos das escolas do concelho de Matosinhos com a Orquestra Jazz de Matosinhos.

”Music with plants, plants with Music” is the motto of the Grand Sound Fishing of the school year 2016/2017, comprehending explanatory experiences that aim at the simbiosis between Music, body, plants, listening and space. In this concert we will share the research we have been making with and from plants, the dialogues with leaves and winds and the sonorities that we found from the root to the flower. The Prelude, this first concert of the Grand Sound Fishing, has as title: Tuning of the Seeds. It’s aimed at parents, children, families and whoever wants to come and listen to the garden. Free admission, but limited to the seats available.
The ”labour” began last October, in the company of Augusto Gomes Secondary School (ESAG) and of the Organisation of Retired Fishermen of Matosinhos (APAM) , having as mission to imagine the bottom of the sea, considering that 99% of it is still unknown.
Sounds, sonorities, melodies, stories, images, monsters, watery landscpes and everything that imagination could fish were imagined. There was singing, playing, writing, talking, composing and drawing. The Prelude Undersea, last December, was the first dive/concert of the Grand Sound Fishing and it consisted of a sequence of sound textures, original melodies and a theme from jazz traditional repertoire. In January we brought on board the Jardim-Escola João de Deus (J-EJD) and Gonçalves Zarco Secondary School (ESGZ) with the mission of analising Prelude Undersea and help us with new findings. Interlude to the Galleon followed, in March, the second dive/concert that reflected the creative research of the several months and where soundscapes, conventional jazz themes, melodies and original themes, amateur musicians, musicians from Orquestra Jazz de Matosinhos, students, children, schoolteachers co-existed, as well as a lively dialoque between music, word and image.
Grand Sound Fishing: Mission to the Bottom of the Sea was the last dive/concert of the ”labour” and brought Orquestra Jazz de Matosinhos on board. The show culminated the research process that took place throughout the school year, reflecting the creative process developed along the sessions oriented by the facilitators of LabJázzica (OJM’s educational services) facilitators, in a dive/concert that took us from the surface to the bottom of the sea to see and hear sounds, treasures, animals, silences, people, gestures and, finally, emerge with new findings on Music and ourselves.
Interlude to the Galleon gathers all the creative work that was developed along the Grand Sound Fishing throughout the school year of 2015/2016. Under the idea of “Mission to the Bottom of the Sea”, the musical, visual and literary work combines more or less conventional material and ideas that might be said aim to mirror and make the creative process an inclusive one, where everyone may find new ways of relating with Art and particularly with Music. Interlude to the Galleon is a concert that florished along several months and where co-exist soundscapes, conventional jazz themes, melodies and original scores, amateur musicians, professional musicians, students, children, schoolteachers, as well as a lively dialogue of music with word and image. The show reflects the creative process developed along the sessions oriented by the facilitators of LabJázzica – OJM’s educational services – on a journey that took us from the surface to the bottom of the sea to search for sounds, treasures, animals, silences, people and, finally, emerge with findings on Music and ourselves.
Prelude Undersea was the first concert of the project Grand Sound Fishing: Mission to the Bottom of the Sea. It was the product of the first work phase with the students of Augusto Gomes Secondary School (ESAG) and with the Organisation of Retired Fishermen of Matosinhos (APAM), consisting of a sequence of sound textures, original melodies and conventional themes from the jazz repertoire. The positioning of the performers and musicians around the audience promoted work on sound spacialisation which, along with the fact of being a concert for 20 people maximum, gave the concert an intimate character.
After the Grand Sound Fishing: First Improvisations, this school year the work was based on the music creation and on the regular contact with the students, spreading its ray of action to literature students (creative writing), and fine art students (video and animation works). It culminated in a concert that integrated the school community of the Augusto Gomes Secondary School and Orquestra Jazz de Matosinhos.
Pilot project of the Grand Sound Fishing, a partnership between Orquestra Jazz de Matosinhos and Augusto Gomes Secondary School. After the presentation to the school community of a call for music students, curious and amateurs interested in the participation in a criative workshop with OJM musicians, a group of people who worked conventional jazz repertoire throughout regular sessions was created. The work will culminate in a concert that integrates traditional jazz repertoire as well as original music compositions.
