Abstract

The Observatory of Electronic Music and Media Art (Ob.EMMA) is a pioneer observatory created in 2019 for monitoring, mapping, diagnosing and promoting the investigation of electronic music and media art in Portugal. Ob.EMMA is part of the ID research center CITCEM_Center for Transdisciplinary Research on Culture, Space and Memory. Given its hybrid nature, this observatory includes artists and academics from various institutions and areas, namely, communication sciences, social sciences, technologies, humanities and arts. Ob.EMMA integrates two main lines of research: 1_Elec-tronic Music and 2_Media Art. explored both autonomously and also together. One of the objectives of this observatory is to create a digital platform with the main purpose of organizing, managing and preserving information, using different storytelling forms of visualization. The work in progress is a pilot project, developed within the scope of line 1_Electronic Music to be later applied in the line 2_Media Art and if possible, to create intersections between both and available on the web for public access.
