The Clangor Disco was a local of reference in Spain during the 80’s due to its modernity and aesthetics, as well as its bet for the vanguard music with the coolest bands of the momento. This year, a group of students of the Faculty of Communications Sciences of the USC have rescued this historical value via an ApS (Learning Service) work, which conjugates learning and community service.

The project came from the subject Audiovisual Writing, with the aim of carrying out a piece on the intangible heritage of the city of Santiago de Compostela. The starting point was an article sent to the students by Cibrán Tenreiro, member of the Audiovisual Studies Research Group that hold the practical part of the subject, together with the also group member and coordinator of the subject Enrique Castelló. Thus, Arón Arias, Cristovo García, Zoe Ferreiros, Pablo Fariña, Antón Viqueira and Anxo Gómez decided to investigate about Clangor and its role in the introduction of the movida madrileña and the British music of the era in Compostela.

The work became a documentary film about the nightclub which takes the testimonies of the artist Fernando Pereira, owner and creator of Clangor; the producer and professor Suso Iglesias, active participant of the movida in Galicia, and the academic María Fidalgo Casares, specialist in the movida and with personal experiences linked to the place. The project is centered in the analysis of the cultural value of the concert hall, following the line of the Studies in Popular Music, avoiding the polemic of the attack perpetrated by the Exército Guerrilheiro.

Therefore, the piece focus in the origins of Clangor, its preference for British music, the importance of Radio 3 and the emblematic concerts that it brought to Santiago, such as Nacha Pop, the Godfathers or Dr Feelgood. It aims to reflect the “Clangor Spirit”, as its authors call it. Something that has to do with a generation, with an attitude. With that immaterial element that makes it intangible heritage of the city.
