Catalogue of Audio Works by Featured Performers

The GDA and the GDA Foundation have been continuously supporting the publication of new phonographic works through the promotion of their competitions to support the Phonographic Publishing of Performers, support for the Young Musicians Award and other occasional support that consistently contributes to the dynamisation of the Portuguese musical universe.

The balance of the activity carried out, which has led to the creation of several hundred works by a very significant number of Portuguese artists and groups, has resulted in the creation of the Phonographic Publishing Catalogue project, a compilation of the phonographic editions supported by the GDA and the GDA Foundation. The aim of this process of research, information gathering and investigation associated with cataloguing works, listing and framing them, editorial work and their public dissemination is to provide a service, first and foremost, to the artists themselves, who are the ultimate foundation of the GDA Foundation’s mission.

The aim is also to create an archive with historical significance and a working tool that can serve pedagogical, academic, analytical and research purposes for those looking into these matters. To this end, the catalogue will be systematically updated as new works are created and published.

The coordination of this project was entrusted to journalist and music consultant Nuno Galopim, whose recognised skills and knowledge guarantee the necessary rigour required for a project of this nature.

The catalogue is available online on the GDA Foundation website, with the following information about the works and artists supported:

  • Artist/Group
  • Biographical notes and official photos (when provided by the artists/groups)
  • Title of the work
  • Year of publication
  • Alignment
  • Technical file
  • Distributor
  • Album cover image
  • Year and scope of support

We will progressively enrich the information, including all the official photographs of the artists and their biographical notes, as well as editorial content and samples of the phonograms.
