SHAPE is a platform for innovative music and audiovisual art from Europe co-funded by the Creative Europe programme. It consists of sixteen festivals and art centres active within the ICAS – International Cities of Advanced Sound network and aims to support, promote and exchange innovative and aspiring musicians and interdisciplinary artists with an interest in sound. SHAPE also attempts to provide audiences and professionals with insightful lectures, talks and workshops by experts in various fields related to sound and performance.

Each year, the sixteen involved associations collectively choose forty-eight creatively strong artists and musicians to participate in a mix of live performances, residencies, workshops and talks across festivals and special events. SHAPE-supported artists at Unsound 2017 include Black Zone Myth Chant, Inga Mauer, J.G. Biberkopf, Maoupa Mazzochetti, Olivia, Ron Morelli, Varg, Wacław Zimpel.
