Sound of Stockholm 2019

10 years of Sound of Stockholm

Since 2010, Sound of Stockholm has been spreading a genre-transcending program in various venues all over Stockholm, breaking the monotony of the dark month of November. Curated by several Swedish associations of different musical interests – among them Fylkingen, FRIM, Kulturföreningen SEKT, Studio 53, Konstmusiksystrar, Samtida Musik and STHLM Drone Society – Sound of Stockholm makes a unique collaborative festival whose 10th edition takes place between 19-23 November 2019. Spanning across three venues and four days, Sound of Stockholm is an opportunity to experience contemporary chamber music, experimental electronica, and sound art – all at one festival.

The 2019 edition of the Festival is presented by Fylkingen, FRIM, Kulturföreningen SEKT and Samtida Musik.

Sound of Stockholm 2019

This year, the festival starts with a concert on November 19 with internationally acclaimed contemporary sextet Eighth Blackbird. During the Thursday and Friday of the festival week, two nights at Fylkingen will be filled with improvisational and experimental sounds, featuring among others VINYL -TERROR & -HORROR with their repetitive arrangements, dark sounds, neck breaking mixes, film-amateur sound effects, scratches, and squeaks, norwegian singer-composer Sidsel Endresen and guitarist Stian Westerhus‘ visceral experimental soundscapes, and Claudia Molitor with her ever-shifting, constant work-in-progress piece “Decay” that also offers space for a guest artist (experimental violinist George Kentros) to become the co-author of the performance.

On Saturday, November 23, we relocate to Slaktkyrkan for the last night, where you will be able to see the debut collaboration of the American cellist Leila Bordreuil and composer Kali Malone who created a new piece specifically for Sound of Stockholm, which they developed at EMS (Elektronmusikstudion). The night also features performances by Kim Myhr, Pinquins and The End. Afterwards, we present a club night at Hus 7 just next door, headlined with a live set by Hiro Kone, and a DJ set by Danish producer Yuri.
