Terraforming is the theoretical process in which life on a planet becomes possible through the creation of an atmosphere. Terraforma is the manifest of our belief that new dimensions can now be Terraformed. Started in 2014 as a music festival in Villa Arconati, Terraforma has evolved into a comprehensive curatorial platform dedicated to practices operating within the spectrum of sound and ecology.

Throughout the years Terraforma introduced innovative experiential and editorial formats such as Terraforma Journal, Il Pianeta Come Festival, and Terraforma Simposio. In February 2024, Terraforma introduced Exo, a new cultural manifestation whose first edition will take place on June 15th and 16th in Milan’s Parco Sempione. The curatorial program will encompass live performances, installations, sound walks, and panel discussions featuring leading thinkers, musicians, and artists who operate within the spectrum of sound and ecology.



TIMES (The Independent Movement for Electronic Scenes) is a cooperative project that brings together 10 European festivals to create original performances that combine music and visual arts. As well as shared programming of artists and the project's original creations, TIMES aims to support, promote, and improve diversity and sustainability within the music sector.

TIMES is a collaboration between: Arty Farty/Nuits sonores (FR), Berlin Atonal (DE), Elevate (AT), Insomnia (NO), Le Guess Who? (NL), Reworks (GR), Semibreve (PT), Sónar (ES), Terraforma (IT), Unsound (PL), and our audiovisual partner Creative Broadcast (RO). The project is a successor to the We Are Europe cooperation (2015-2022) and is co-funded by the European Union.
