Söndagen den 22 oktober, kl 16
Kulturen hus, Luleå
Hoby 354, 27636 Borrby

Ann Rosén är en av musiklivets verkliga innovatörer som i decennier befunnit sig i framkanten som tonsättare och ljudkonstnär. Hon är en av personerna bakom det feministiska musikprojektet Syntjuntan och en tongivande kraft i den svenska experimentella nutida konstmusiken

När orkester efter orkester lades ner startade Ann Rosén Barriärorkestern som består av musiker och konstnärer utvalda för sin speciella kompetens och vilja att utmana, ta spjärn och använda sina egna barriärer för att utveckla musiken.

Barriärorkestern hade sin premiär 2015 på Fylkingen med verket Resilience. På Kulturens hus kommer vi att få uppleva när Barriärorkestern framför verkerna Bredvid O, Gården och Resilience med nykomponerade moduler av Ann Rosén med texter av Helena Boberg.

Medverkande: Anna Lindal - violin, Eva Lindal - violin, Elsbeth Berg - viola, Sara Sjödahl - piano och dragspel, Linn Persson - saxofon, Matias Karlsen Björnstad - saxofon, Ola Paulsson - saxofon, Jakob Riis - trombon, Sten‐Olof Hellström - synt och elektronik, Helena Boberg - röst, Ann Rosén - röst och elektronik.

Blyertsbarriär - workshop @ Vardagsrummet2017/10/15

Vad är en barriär för dig?

Workshop med kompositör och ljudkonstnär Ann Rosén och musiker ur Barriärorkestern.

Vi skapar bilder, partitur och musik med papper, blyerts och “barriärsyntar”

Rita en teckning, beskriv en händelse, berätta en historia och skapa ett partitur med blyerts på papper. Genom att använda blyertsens ledande förmåga och teckningens motstånd kan du spela med synten.

Vi utforskar teckningens möjligheter och spelar tillsammans med musiker ur Barriärorkestern.

Spatial elektronmusik på Österlen2017/9/22

Jakob Riis @ Vardagsrummet

Fredagen den 22 september kl 20
Vardagsrummet
Hoby 354, 27636 Borrby

24 högtalare nära, långt ifrån, över, under och runtom publiken blir till ett instrument spelat av rad fantastiska ljudkonstnärer och musiker från när och fjärran.

De två kompositörer och ljudkonstnärer Ann Rosén och Sten-Olof Hellström har flyttat till Östra Hoby och öppnar nu en ny scen för experimentell ljudkonst och konstmusik. Det finns visserligen bara plats för lite mer än 30 personer men i gengäld finns det 24 kanaler och högtalare placerade nära, långt ifrån, över, under och runtom publiken. Ljudkonstnärer och musiker från när och fjärran bjuder på rumslig musikupplevelse långt bortom de musikaliska allfarvägarna.’

Den danska kompositören och musikern Jakob Riis inleder konsertserien Spatial elektronmusik på Österlen. Med Vardagsrummet som ett musikinstrument framför Jakob några av sina senaste verk vilka han komponerat för diffusion. I elektronmusik sammanhang innebär diffusion att en person manuellt distribuerar ljudet till de olika högtalarna i konsertsalen för att på så sätt använda rummets alla dimensioner som en musikalisk parameter. Det blir uruppförande för verket "Bird Control in Östra Hoby", som är första delen av ett är ett större pågående arbete som baserar sig på omvänd fourier transform. Dessutom framförs de nyare verken ”Into The White”, ”Corrosional Regions” och ”Revisited by Proxy” där ljud från elektronik, trombon, rundgång och cymbaler utforskas från olika håll.

"Virtuality" - music by Ablinger, Del Nero, Jacob TV, Nono and Stockhausen2017/3/28

Hertzbreakerz and Ars Nova
VIRTUALITY - Concert II
Tuesday March 28th, 20:00
Inter Arts Center, Red Room
Bergsgatan 29, Malmö

I am very happy to be a part of this second concert in the Hertzbreakerz - Ars Nova Ensemble series

In the performance of Karlheinz Stockhausen visionary composition "SOLO" from 1965, Agata Tuchołka will be featured soloist on flutes, and I will be in charge of the electronic department assisted by Alessandro Perini and Francesco del Nero.

The concert will focus on the duality between the concrete presence of a body (as a person or as an object) and the abstract essence of electronic sound, virtual networks, video-projected images as doors to another dimension.

Other works that will be performed in this concert are two pieces from the well-known series “Voices and piano” by Ablinger, Jacob TV’s “Grab it”, Luigi Nono’s “Post-Præ-Ludium per Donau” and a new work by composer Francesco Del Nero for ensemble, electronics and light. This piece represents a sort of journey into the mind of the author in which the virtuality will have both the function of creating a soundscape around the audience and the function of a character, bringing it from a real world to the surreal world of the dream.

PROGRAM

Francesco Del Nero - Come punti di una trama di sabbia - for ensemble, electronics and light
Karlheinz Stockhausen - Solo - for flute with feedback
Peter Ablinger - Voices and piano: Morton Feldman - for piano and tape
Luigi Nono - Post Præ-ludium per Donau - for tuba and live electronics
Jacob TV - Grab it - for sax, tape and video projection

Sound Disturbance - Inter Arts Center 10-11 february2017/2/10

Sound Disturbance – Hearing the visual, is a Sonic Art Festival in Malmö taking place at Inter Arts Center 10-11 february 2017. The Festival consists of concerts and performances by Sound Artists and Musicians from the Nordic countries, and a seminar and a networking meeting which reflects and comments Sound Art.

On the first day of the festival - friday, february 10th - Jakob Riis will play a solo performance with trombone, analogue electronic feedback circuits, hand cymbals and contact microphone, utilized in the initiation of a process of bringing a self-regulating music to surface, with soundings of acoustic and electronic cracklings, slides and currents. YouTube video

Sound Disturbance – Hearing the visuals is an initiative by the Association C-Y (ContemporarY) in Malmö, Artists' Association Muu in Helsinki and the North Norwegian Art Centre (NNKS) in Svolvær, in collaboration with Inter Arts Center and C’est bon kultur in Malmö.

We can’t close our ears. Therefore sound can be both a bliss and a disturbance in life. Sound can affect our emotions immediately, without any thought or explanation. It's an expression that is increasingly used and loved by artists and audience and there is a need for events and opportunities to put the light on what it really is: an artistic expression of its own right.

The audience will be given the opportunity to experience installations, videos live performances and hear music from scores of experimental music of different genres, from ambient, drone and noise to electroacoustics – and collaborations between sound artists and comic book writers in live sessions.


Jakob Riis solo - Mandagsklubben @ 5e2017/2/6

Slagtehusgade 5e, Copenhagen

Monday, february 6th, 20:00 at Mandagsklubben. Jakob Riis will play a solo performance with trombone, analogue electronic feedback circuits, hand cymbals and contact microphone, utilized in the initiation of a process of bringing a self-regulating music to surface, with soundings of acoustic and electronic cracklings, slides and currents.

Mandagsklubben is the weekly recurring utopia, presented by Kresten Osgood at underground scene 5e in Copenhagen. Every monday night there is original, cutting edge high quality music from 8pm and well into the night. Very happy to play there for the first time.

Three new compostiions for acousmonium by Jakob Riis, Katt Hernandez and Jørgen Teller

Acousmatic Lab presents a concert combining live perfomance and sound diffusion with premieres of three new compositions for the acousmonium. Acousmatic Lab is a month-long event with concerts, seminars, workshops and work in progress on the art of sound diffusion

”Into the White” by Jakob Riis
A composition for đàn tranh, electronic processing and fixed media.
The basis for this composition will be a microtonal tuning that also can be applied to the Vietnamese instrument đàn tranh. The sonic material for this composition is created from this atmosphere, and will concist of both dense dissonant microtonal timbres and open chords in just intonation. Melodics of bent notes, vibrato and ornamentation will live in the frequency ranges not occupied by the chord, where the instrumntal sounds moves in and out of electronic sounds and massifs. The electronic sound is generated in a Max patch made especially for this composition. In parts of the composition, this will be experienced as an aspiration towards white noise. Composed with support from the Danish Arts Foundation.
Nguyễn Thanh Thủy, đàn tranh.
Jakob Riis, sound diffusion

Katt Hernandez will create a new multi-channel "tape" piece in contemplation of the ephemeral remains of the former and future possible urban landscapes of Stockholm, featuring violin, Buchla and their cross interaction through the ghost-mechanism of frequency modulation and that which forms between, spatialized in the temporary "acousmonium" at Inter Arts Center in Malmö.

”Plane-Z's” by Jørgen Teller
A composition for synth, vibraphone, live violin, samples. This piece's leadoff is a listening-exhibition. The ears flights via special intervals; stretched, panned and spottedin a large number of speakers. The resonance of 4-8 intervals moves inside the concerthall at IAC. Performed with advanced tools of surround-sound-software. In this sound-field a live violin-player intonates frequencies andtimbres based on a peticularly resonant tuning. The goal is to find the jubilant uplifting sonic material which will enable the listeners to achieve a releasing movement of their head and everything that is connected to it. See: control and hazard. Composed with support from the Danish Arts Foundation.
Katt Hernandez, violin
Jørgen Teller, synth, vibraphone, diffusion
Jakob Riis, co-diffusion


Nguyễn Thanh Thủy was born into a theatre family and was raised with traditional Vietnamese music from an early age in Hà Nội. She studied at the Hanoi Conservatory of Music, followed by a Master of Arts at the Institute of Cultural Studies. She works with both traditional and experimental music as a đàn tranh performer/improvisor; collaborates with many musicians and composers around the world. Since 2012 she is carrying out an artistic doctoral project at the Malmö Academy of Music concerned with gesture in traditional Vietnamese music.

Jakob Riis, composer, trombonist and electronic musician, primarily working with electroacoustic music in various formats: duo, solo and larger ensembles. He has composed for and worked with a wide range of different ensembletypes: bigband, chamber orchestra, multichannel loudspeaker orchestra and solo laptop. Nguyễn Thanh Thủy and Jakob Riis has worked together since 2009, both as a duo and in larger ensembles. In 2010 they released the CD ”Tranh Improvisation” (Ngấu Hứng Tranh) on the Vietnamese label Phoung Nam Phim.

Katt Hernandez is an american violinist and composer living in Sweden since 2010. In 2014 she earned a Masters degree in Electroacoustic Composition from the Royal College of Music in Stockholm (KMH), and is now pursuing a Phd in Music at the Malmö Academy of Music (MHM).

Acousmatic Lab - Negativland: A Big 10-8 Place2017/1/4

Inofficial opening concert for Acousmatic Lab

January 4th, 2017 at 19:00
Inter Arts Center (White Room, 3rd floor)
Bergsgatan 29, Malmö

Use code 1008 for entrance and elevator

The inofficial opening of the month-long event, Acousmatic Lab at Inter Arts Center, will be an evening with Negativlands album "A Big 10-8 Place" diffused in the 42-loudspeaker large acousmonium by Jakob Riis.

Negativland is an American experimental music band which originated from Concord, in the San Francisco Bay Area, in 1979. They have released a number of albums ranging from pure sound collage to more musical expositions.

A Big 10-8 Place is Negativland's 3rd album, which is a concept album released in 1983. The album's title is a reference to the radio ten-code "10-8", which means "back in service" or "available for next call" in the context of common citizens band radio usage. The lyrics and collage sound clips on the album make frequent reference to the CB radio hobby, as well as mischief like radio jamming.

This album took the best part of 3 years to construct on magnetic tape. Mark Hosler of Negativland repeatedly fine-edited immense tracts of sonic material before rejecting most of it and starting again. A meticulous voyage through tenth-of-a-second tape edits as the story of the Big 10-8 Place unravels. A journey across the topographical contours of Contra Costa County. With it's unique blend of musique concrète, sound collage, songs and spoken word, this work offers an abundance of rich sonic material, perfect for being spatialized in the acousmonium.

Acousmatic Lab is a month-long event with concerts, seminars, workshops and work in progress on the art of sound diffusion. It will all take place in the White Room at IAC where an Acousmonium – a loudspeaker orchestra of 42 speakers – will be set up. Some of the participating sound artists are Jakob Riis, Lise-Lotte Norelius, Mats Lindström, Jørgen Teller, Katt Hernandez, Fabio Monni, Alessandro Perini and Kent Olofsson. There will be concerts on 21st, 22nd, 26th and 28th of January. More events will be added and a detailed program for Acousmatic Lab will be presented later on Inter Arts Centers webpage
