artistic experimentation in music: an anthology

Tags: , ,


Edited by: Darla Crispin, Bob Gilmore

Essential reading for anyone interested in artistic research applied to music This book is the first anthology of writings about the emerging subject of artistic experimentation in music. This subject, as part of the cross-disciplinary field of artistic research, cuts across boundaries of the conventional categories of performance practice, music analysis, aesthetics, and music pedagogy. The book critically examines experimentation in music of different historical eras. Accompanied by a CD and by an online resource of video illustrations.

the chorus of giving and the chorus of begging

Tags: , ,

When: August 23–September 14, kl.12-18 (opening reception: August 23, 16:00)
Where: Six joined containers behind Röda Sten Konsthall, Gothenburg


In the exhibition MOTBILDER, artistic director for ICIA, Anna van der Vliet, presents a new film and sound installation by Cecilia Parsberg.

The political is the very foundation of my artistic work. The political happens every day, between people in my neighborhood, people who share my existence. I see and feel a physical and mental distance between those on their knees on the street and passers by, between beggars and givers. The viewer is invited into that space “in-between.” There is a dialogue, or lack of dialogue, between the two choruses; between voices, facial expressions and bodies. The installation “The Chorus of Giving and the Chorus of Begging” is an embodiment of this experiential space. A mirror of the situation that everybody can experience on the street and refer to in their day-to-day lives. It is my hope that art will make visible this in-between space – which seems difficult to talk about – as a space for action; and thus contribute to the possibility for political action in and about this space.

future jam: horizons

Where: Tensta Konsthall
When: Sunday 30.3, 14:00

Haunted by Shadows of the Future – HORIZONSthe-time-tunnel-tensta1

A jam session on probable, speculative, or perhaps rather unseemly futures for Tensta in the year 2030. Starring: Adam Tensta, Dougald Hine, Gunilla Lundahl and Tor Lindstrand. Featuring: STEALTH.unlimited (Ana Džokić + Marc Neelen) and Peter Lang.

An attempt to
 re-set Tensta into probable, speculative, or perhaps rather unseemly futures in the year 2030. Will this, yet unknown Tensta be an autonomous zone, where the residents of this disregarded part of Stockholm have successfully taken their destiny into their own hands? Or 
will its multi-facetted society prove so vital that this “new Sweden” comes to dominate the entire country by 2030? Or will Tensta’s original but unfulfilled mission – of creating an environment that acknowledges and gives space to a fully liberated and democratic model citizen – ultimately be re-created? And what would such a citizens’ liberation and equality mean if we could live it today?

Sing, Yell, Tell: A Panel on Voice

As part of the upcoming exhibition of Jeanine Oleson’s exhibition Hear, Here the New Events Museum is presenting Sing, Yell, Tell, a public panel bringing together experts who will discuss the notion of voice, from technical concerns to political potential to affective possibilities. This is the beginning of a full Season exploration of VOICE, ranging from the relationships between vocal performers and engaged audiences to voice as agency in political work. Is there a connection between the discernment of an audience and the galvanizing of political agency when viewing the world stage? Is the affective power of another’s voice an activating force? Is there a historic connection between care, queerness, cultural criticism, and activist voice?
