ABOUT THE ENSEMBLES

FABRIC UNION is a concert installation by the Helsinki-based Union of Anna-Sofia Anttonen, Joasia Cieslak, Martta Jämsä, Annaroosa Lampela, Maritta Manner, Eero Marttila, Matilda Seppälä & Lauri Supponen. Fabric Union is assemble and performed on, with and inside a textile environment. The interaction of the performer and the fabric is a sonic, a visual and a kinetic happening. As an ensemble, Union seeks to make the working environment and intersubject relationships within the ensemble visible in a performative context.  

TTCM is a collective for experimental music from Oslo, consisting of musicians Jennifer Torrence (percussion), Vilde Sandve Alnæs (violin) and Inga Margrete Aas (double bass), and composers Martin Hirsti-Kvam and Martin Rane Bauck. With works by Hirsti-Kvam, Bauck, Malin Bång (SE) and Bergrún Snæbjörnsdóttir (IC), TTCM will present a concert that combines live music with prerecorded performances, incl. the Bogstad Farm Cows, John Cage, Morton Feldman, violin makers and a chainsaw.  

With its strong commitment to commissioning and performing the newest contemporary music, the Gothenburg-based ensemble MIMITABU has quickly established itself as an important voice on the Scandinavian new music scene. MIMITABU wants to expose audiences to a wide spectrum of sounds in unexpected and surprising contexts. The ensemble actively seek out and collaborate with composers and artists who have a genuine and innovative approach towards sound as artistic material. By exploring the full potential of the acoustic instruments and also experimenting with electronics and everyday objects, the arrangement of differentiated sound sources available is infinitely flexible.

The City Composing Gothenburg

by svejohan

Gothenburg, Sweden

Write music, a poem, a melody, a text, draw the moment, a collage, the gesture, the idea…

“The City Composing Gothenburg” is a project that gives a chance for everybody to become a music composer thus involving people that are non-musicians in the fascinating music creation process. This project invites citizens of Gothenburg to become active creative participants and contributors to the contemporary music making.

The scores are then collected and arranged by Hara Alonso and Johan Svensson and later on performed in a concert by Mimitabu.

From May to September there will be a digital platform where you can participate by creating a score, sending a score, by email, or in case you prefer to send the scores on paper, by post. Everybody is welcome to participate!

The concert will take place in Hagakyrkan the 18th of September at 19:00.

Mimitabu 10+1 years!

by svejohan

Gothenburg, Sweden
Mimitabu has for 10 years conveyed the shifting soundscapes of the newest Scandinavian art music in a playful and virtuosic manner, from scandispectralism, geometric constructivism, coloured noise and junk yard aesthetics to music inspired by Swedish November weather. By stretching the possibilities of the ensemble’s acoustic instruments (flute, oboe, clarinet, percussion, piano, violin, viola and cello) to the limits, complemented with electronics and various sounding objects, we can offer unexpected and near limitless sound worlds.

The anniversary concert, originally planned for April 2020, looks both backward and forward – we present highlights from our repertoire in music by Esaias Järnegard, Johan Svensson, Lina Järnegard and Ylva Lund Bergner, as well as a world premiere by the Icelandic composer Guðmundur Steinn Gunnarsson.

Where:
Atalante, Gothenburg

When:
The concert will be presented as a video in August.

Programme:
Gudmundur Steinn – New work
Esaias Järnegard – Isola
Ylva Lund Bergner – Achenar
Lina Järnegard – Kylan, plötslig
Johan Svensson – Rita cirklar

Presented by Levande musik and Mimitabu with support from the City of Gothenburg and the Swedish Arts Council.
