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.
