CRIM3S

A normal day in the CRIM3S life can be summarized in community service, job center waiting rooms, shoplifting, and breaking speakers. Composing sound on a broken laptop, Rou was searching for a vocalist, someone as raw, extreme and honest as himself. In 2010, Rou Rot and Sadie Pinn met in a north London warehouse called […]

STRUCTURES OF FEELING (PANEL CONVERSATION)

This is a conversation on hierarchy versus organization: hegemony versus desire. As an extension of Konstmusiksystrar’s participation in Sound of Stockholm, we gather young female artists to discuss the economy of sound making, of being seen, and methods of claiming space.

BERGRÚN SNÆBJÖRNSDÓTTIR

KONSTMUSIKSYSTRAR

Who is allowed to be an artist and how do we perceive art and sound? Although a lot has changed within the field of pop and rock, women and queer people are still minorities in art education’s composer programs.

Each emitting ear produces something akin to an acoustic fingerprint: […]

YES DEER

With a massive cacophony of writhing textures, manic hammering, and distorted screeching, Yes Deer derives from improvisation, performing collective physical rituals through ceremonies of chaos. With a hyper expressive free jazz as consequence, the friction between intellect and libido, pre- and post-, collectivism and individualism are elasticised. A momentum of cells in ecstasy: the sound […]
