BERGRÚN SNÆBJÖRNSDÓTTIR

Oakland/Reykjavík based composer, performer, and sound artist Bergrún Snæbjörnsdóttir recreates perceived metaphysical structures based in empirical observations on relationships and causalities.

KONSTMUSIKSYSTRAR

Who is allowed to be an artist and how do we perceive art and sound?

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 […]

SVARTE GREINER

JACOB KIRKEGAARD

These are just some of the questions explored by Jacob Kirkegaard in his artistic practice. On the first day of the Sound of Stockholm journey, Kirkegaard will lecture on the […]
