Organisers Inkonst, CTM, EMS, IAC and Unsound are extremely proud to present four days of innovative music at the highest international level, ranging from exquisite sound explorations and extraordinary rhythmical experiments to some of the finest dance floor acts in the world.
We want Intonal to be a place where seemingly difficult and inaccessible musical expressions are transformed into open and joyous experiences. We believe that if artists are granted freedom to explore their musical limits and move beyond existing conventions, open-minded attendants will be handsomely rewarded. Curiosity is the nemesis of boredom.

Janna Holmstedt: In the Greenery (Sound installations)
”In the Greenery” brings together three sound installations, where memory, forgetfulness, loss, and transformation are at the heart of the narrative. As a visitor, you enter an acoustic and visual environment composed of light, sound, green plants, constructions, and suggested actions. A narration unfolds that revolves around light and image making; memory and meaning; attempts to capture words and to control images. Four characters stand out as key figures, for whom the relation between the concrete world and its representations has been turned upside-down. “Greenery” may refer to foliage, the main organ of photosynthesis, or to greenhouses, environments designed to enhance rapid growth and development. What kind of growth and transformation the different apparatuses in the exhibition have to offer though, is an open question.
The Annex, 22 April 6 pm – 10 pm. 23 April 4 pm– 10 pm. 24 April 4 pm– 7 pm
Marcus Pal: Welcome in, Outside (Sound installation)
Welcome In, Outside is a meditation on the illusory nature of the inside/outside distinction. “The experience that I seek to have while listening to this sound is a complete collapse of the sense of there being a duality between that which is heard and the one who hears, between self and other, subject and object. In certain styles of Buddhist philosophy and practise, this is what is called nondual awareness. There is no in here. There is no out there. Here, in the realm of nondual awareness, reality is revealed to be empty of this kind of duality. Inside is outside. Outside is inside.”
The Café, 22 April 8 pm. 23 April 5 pm, 8 pm
