MISFORTUNE AND IS GENERALLY A NEGATIVE OMEN OF YOUR LIFE.

Det innersta rummet
Kristin Warfvine is a Malmö-based composer with a background in jazz percussion and choir. Her compositional niche has mostly been contemporary choir and rhythmical ensemble music, with a focus on exploring different rhythmical elements in a “classical” frame, such as metrical modulations and rhythmical super positioning. “Det innersta rummet” however is an electro-acoustic piece, focusing on space and acoustics inside our digestive system. It was originally part of an architectural analysis in Helsingborg.
Juni Andrea Ek
Juni Andrea Ek has studied the accordion which lead to an interest in composition. With the
music she wrote when studying the instrument, she applied to St Sigfrids where she studied for two years. Since 2016 she studies at the College of Music in Malmö.
The sound for this piece is recorded from subway line 3, which operates the route Krumme Lanke-Nollendorfplatz in Berlin. Juni has always thought the sounds in Berlin’s subway creates an exciting atmosphere. There are several different recorded sounds in the piece but she has mainly focused on sounds from the loudspeaker voice and she lets the sound from a slow-moving train act like a melody. She finishes the piece with an improvisation on accordion. What Juni wants to convey with this piece is a visual feeling of a parallel world for the listener to be thrown into.
Jana Sleep is a musicial/producer from northern Sweden whose music is based on sound from her cello and field recordings. The inspiration comes from the endless patterns of our nature, our environment, and how we as human beings relate to and are in them. The piece “Yta” has sprung from a dark winter night in a city. Initially, it treats the grief of the superficial ways we often meet and look at each other, but the music opens up for an inner meditation through the city noise.
Kristin Boussard is a composer from Åmål. In her compositions she endeavour to find musical ideas in non musical concepts, and her pieces often contain visual elements to elevate the listening experience.” ZzZzZZz…” was originally written for voice quartet and is based on the sounds we make when we sleep. The rewritten version you are about to hear is for one voice and electronics, and will be performed by herself. She found it interesting to work with something as organic as breathing and sleeping sounds. This in combination with delay effects that replicate these sounds, sometimes in a natural way and sometimes in a most artificial way, makes for an interesting soundscape and may even cause drowsiness in the listener.
Originally and primarily being a vocalist, Copenhagen-based artist FANNY recently took the step into the world of performative and conceptual electronic music. Her aim is to intuitively find the beauty and rhythm in sounds from everyday life, through field recordings, organic instruments and her voice. Besides music, her interests lies in the field between creativity and psychology and the connection between the two. In RADIOSKUGGA, FANNY gently commands the attention of the audience onto the stage and into her performance. Through a firey, yet vulnerable spirit the rough and the soft come together, as an invitation for you to really feel the here and now. RADIOSKUGGA is a sound interpretation of: “a Universe where Feelings Can’t Be Hidden nor Controlled” – not even in the most vulnerable situations of broadcasting it live on the radio.
My love is a dot on a lince I don’t know
“My love is a dot on a lince I don’t know” is an investigation into Skype as a digital line of
communication between me and the ones I love. Who is this third part of our conversations? Through layers of feedback I try to understand this line and what it does to our voices and the things we try to tell each other.
