Orkestern har arbetat med kompositörer som Gavin Bryars och Arnold Dreyblatt.

Tillsammans November 21

October 4th, 2015 § 0 comments § permalink

Tillsammans (Together) is an upcoming exhibition for children and their adults at The Museum of World Culture in Göteborg, Sweden, opening in November 21, 2015. Currently, I am completing 4 soundscapes ( one four channel work and three stereo works) about the difficulties and the magics of living together.

While waiting for November to come, I will finish my work by recording a bit more with these plants. By the time of the opening you will be able to find them somewhere in the swarm of impressions. The exhibition will stay around for many years so take your time, no need to rush. And the museum encourages you to come back more than once to explore more with your young friends!




Street Art Österlen on the screen

October 4th, 2015 § 0 comments § permalink

bildStreet Art Österlen is an art project and international street art festival that took place in south of Sweden, July 2015. Neta Norrmo, journalist and film maker, filmed the works of 15 artists growing on empty walls into colorful murals thoughout the countryside of the south of Sweden. The result of following these art processes will lead to an audio visual poetic documentary by Neta, who also asked me to add a couple of sound art works to the film. Clips and sounds were sent back and forth during a collaborative process that reached its first destination in Tomelilla where it was screened and debated as a Work in Progress on September 22. As soon as winter has delivered a white coat to the southern parts, the last pictures will be filmed in order to make the film complete. We will keep you updated on where, when and how you will be able to see the film at its full length!
