January 23rd
Announcing the two first residents of the Make Sound programme
Christian Skjødt and Kaj Duncan David
The composers and sound artists Christian Skjødt and Kaj Duncan David are the first two to have been awarded a residency at Inter Arts Center through the Make Sound programme.

The two first Make Sound residents in 2017

The composers Christian Skjødt and Kaj Duncan David are the first two to have been awarded a residency at Inter Arts Center. Here is what they will each use their stay for:

Christian Skjødt (f. 1980)

Composer and sound artist Christian Skjødt has been awarded a two month stay at IAC in spring 2017, where he will have the opportunity to develop his artistic work regarding phenomenological studies manifested as sound installations/works. He will do so on the basis of the Russian scientist Kéon Theremin’s (1986-1993) inventions ranging from music instruments and monitoring technology.

“I believe that the combination of experimental art and artistic research that IAC offers is obvious in connection with my project and my work in general.

For instance, I specifically hope to draw on researchers and competencies in the human perception, low- power electronics and interface design. Further, I see that having both studio, recording studio, and various viewing platforms available as a unique opportunity to try out ideas and to develop”.

Christian Skjødt’s research will result in an installation as part of Intonal Festival in Malmø April 27th-30th 2017.

Kaj Duncan David (f. 1988)

Kaj Duncan David has been awarded a residency at IAC in late summer 2017 for developing a work for electronic wind quartet and light, commissioned by the Swiss saxophone quartet, ARTE Quartett.

”In this work, I will convert raw MIDI data directly from the instruments (AKAI EWIs) to light via DMX. This means I can explore an interactive relationship between musician, sound and light that is more nuanced and complex than in my previous pieces.

In order to develop such a connection between sound and light, as well as learn about the use of different light equipment in order to develop the idea of a light sculpture, the technical assistance and the resources that IAC offers, is essential”

Critical representation & VR is a Nordic collaborative project led by author-directors Emma Bexell & Stefan Stanisic of Swedish company of performing arts Bombina Bombast. The main part of the work will take place in Malmö and Inter Arts Center but activities also occur in Amsterdam, Stockholm, Helsinki, Copenhagen and Oslo.

Bexell and Stanisic will work at IAC with a combination of criticism and practice in a series of workshops and productions where they, together with invited artists and HCI researchers, explore the performative uses of virtual reality technologies and the radical potential of  VR to present perspectives and narratives where audience agency and embodiment are unconditional parts of the storytelling. The aim is to develop methods for the artistic process with focus on diversity in representation, and explore audience experience.

Artists-in-residence: Lisa Busby and Gabriel Bohm Calles
Action//Text Malmö ‘Floor Scores’
The artists will be working in our studio in August

Lisa Busby and Gabriel Bohm Calles are undertaking the first stage of an investigation to explore unprofessional frameworks, unheard sounds, untrained bodies; uncovering value in prosaic and overlooked gesture.

Lisa Busby and Gabriel Bohm Calles are undertaking the first stage of an investigation to explore unprofessional frameworks, unheard sounds, untrained bodies; uncovering value in prosaic and overlooked gesture. Informed by their shared research interests in empowerment through the everyday and ‘availablism’, traditional club or gig experiences are deconstructed, and personal and sociocultural conventions and tropes interrogated and exploded. By creating a shared field of activity where their roles and actions become dissolved, transcending their respective fields of sound and movement, they are working towards understating how to ‘remix’ their own practices and reflecting on how this could inform our conception and enactment of research.
