Visual Sounds / Mimitabu at Atalante

Darkness, smoke, light, coordinated movements, projections and unusual objects. Music where visual elements make up an important musical parameter is the focus of this evening show, built from works of experimental music. Mimitabu presents a programme with music composed by international and Gothenburg-based composers, with a strong local focus.

All these works share a creative openness regarding what it means being a composer today. No less than three commissioned works will be premiered this evening: by Hanna Hartman, Kajsa Magnarsson and Sebastian Ingvarsson!
