What does a group of minds think together?
Collecting the desires of Sound of Stockholm’s seven member societies, we have taken a closer look at how dissonance acts in contemporary music and arts. The 2017 edition emphasizes the fact that sound is produced and performed by multiple artistic practices. Composing for instruments as well as vocal sounds, movement and imagery, the performing artists bring us a broad set of experiences, all providing different inputs on what collectivity in sound might be. All this is presented in an audience-friendly festival format where the sounds can be experienced in a relaxed, social atmosphere. Come and be part of Sound of Stockholm 2017 from November 7-11, in venues all around Stockholm.
