IAC is still open but …
Public events cancelled and new guidelines for all users.
a brief update from iac in response to the latest developments in the covid-19 outbreak

While an increasing number of countries are shutting down around us, Sweden tries to postpone the shutdown and keep the wheels of society spinning a bit longer. But things are far from normal around here. At IAC most studios are empty right now and all public events have been cancelled until summer. This sadly means that there will be no Intonal Festival, no Acousmatic Lab residencies, courses or concerts, no weekly breakfast gatherings and no international residents just to mention a few of the changes.

But IAC is open for individual work in our studios and project spaces for students, teachers and PhDs at the Faculty of Fine and Performing Art until new directives are formulated from the university. At the moment we can’t offer any hands-on supervision or technical assistance in the same manner as we normally do. If you want to work here, contact us first in order to plan and prepare the work in a way that minimize the risks of spreading the virus.

This unfortunately also means that we from March 23rd and onwards can’t facilitate or house any residencies or collaborations with artists, researchers and partners not directly associated with Lund University. This is a measure taken to protect both our own staff, colleagues and you.

We hope for your understanding in these tough times.

For the latest updates please follow our website and Lund University.

Stay safe and take care!

Make Sound Residencies selected!
Julie Østengaard, Lola Ajima, Ingvild Skandsen, Lasse Munk
Approved Make Sound residencies in October

At the last deadline October 1st, Make Sound received 13 interesting applications for a residency in 2020. Two projects have now been chosen. Congratulations to Julie Østengaard who is going to work with her project ‘Con/current’ during her residency and to Lola Ajima, Ingvild Skandsen and Lasse Munk with the project ‘Deus Ex Machina – Interpretation on the acousmonium’.

Julie Østengaard
Con/current

In the current sound-based work, a kinetic sound sculpture is creating acoustic sound through movement of its own material derived from motorized movements and disorganized movements originated in the acoustic material itself. It interacts with electronic sound in a live performance and the work is thus both an installation and a performance. The electronic soundscape is created from real-time samplings of the installation and spatialized through speakers placed around the room. Con/current is an interchanging sound piece that blends virtual and physical sound in a virtual and physical space. Existing both as physical sound and figure in a physical space and at the same time as virtual sound in a virtual space, the work seeks to create a relation to modern humanity, living in coexistence with its physical and digital self.

Lola Ajima, Ingvild Skandsen & Lasse Munk
Deus Ex Machina – Interpretation on the acousmonium

To perform on an acousmonium is a powerful and very engaging way to spatialise acousmatic compositions live. But it is still a niche, mainly due to the simple fact that an acousmonium is rare. It takes a lot of time, planning and equipment to install it, as well as it takes time to master it to perform live. Lola Ajima, Ingvild Skandsen and Lasse Munk all co-founders of the soundartist collective Deus Ex Machina, all work in different ways on the acousmonium. This is why they have been invited to do a concert on the acousmonium at the Sound Spaces Festival, April 2020. For the residency, they make use of the opportunity to have the acousmonium for a longer period, to do research in spatialisation on their respective styles of acousmatic music, preparing for the concert. They will benefit to have time to share experiences with each other and find inspiration in their differences. During the residency they will do hands-on workshops on the acousmonium for people interested in trying out this particular way of performing acousmatic music.

The point of departure for this exhibition is Kungshuset, the King’s House, one of Lund’s oldest buildings and the home of the university during several centuries. With works by international and local artists the exhibition reflects on the notion of knowledge: What is knowledge? How and where is it produced and used? And who is it for? The Indian art collective Raqs Media Collective produces a site-specific work stretching across several rooms in the building and functioning like the exhibition’s spine. The university is a vital part of Lund, but it is also a closed institution. In this exhibition, the entire King’s House is opened to the public for the first time ever and visitors are given the opportunity to wander freely on all floors and discover both the building and the art.

Participating artists:

Meriç Algün, Christian Bang Jensen, Heman Chong, Elena Damiani, Nicoline van Harskamp, Hassan Khan, Myriam Lefkowitz, Henning Lundkvist, Alessandro Perini, Raqs Media Collective, Emilija Škarnulytė, Christian Skjødt, Magnus Thierfelder.

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.

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.

Composers and sound artists residing in Denmark or with a significant connection to the Danish music scene can apply for a stay at IAC.

Composers who wish to apply must submit an application describing the project they want to work with during the residency.

It should also specify whether the application is for a shorter stay (2-4 weeks) or a longer stay (5-8 weeks).
