Colégio Moderno


Continuing the ancient tradition of storytelling, nowadays disappearing, Miso Music Portugal presents, once again, its original project: Contos Contados Com Som.

Designed for children between 3 and 10 years of age and also for families, this project includes traditional Portuguese and foreign texts and stories, original stories written for the project and stories of contemporary Portuguese writers. For each story an original song was composed by a Portuguese composer. The music for each of the stories carry, describe and sculpt the meaning of words. Thanks to the extraordinary and singular proposals of each composer, mixing sounds that travel through space - the voice of the narrator, electroacoustic music, the transformations of the voice in real time - children's imagination, stimulated by the sound effects, can float, wander to taste of each plot. Music enables the discovery of the semantic and poetic meaning of words.

Each session / show of Contos Contados Com Som includes 3 or 4 stories, with a total duration of approximately 50 minutes.
