Founded in Peru in 1998, Aloardi started as one of the first labels and independent platforms in South and Central America diffusing and producing experimental music, media art, sound related interventions and alternative acoustic research. We support and generate collaborations between people with self-managed associations and institutions on local, national and international level. We organize events and transdisciplinary exhibitions, initiate actions and share knowledge: the association is engaged in approaches towards (non)technological resources, sustainable work and exchange with local communities. Based in Lima, our space serves since 2004 as venue for meetings, workshops, research laboratories, a residency program, audiovisual productions, internet radio broadcasts and a mediatheque.
The presentation of Aloardi at the SOTU Festival is part of the Aloardi Exchange Program 2016 in The Netherlands, a three-months collaboration between among others WORM (Rotterdam), Mirta Demare Art (Rotterdam), Foundation Kulter (Amsterdam) and University San Martin (Lima, Peru).
