Projects

Blackout
Tim Bishop
30 March 2020 - 6 April 2020
'Blackout' is a unique and immersive new performance work for one person at a time by artist Tim Bishop. The work takes place in total darkness and uses spatial audio and haptic feedback to create a multi-sensory and evocative environment for a powerfully self-reflective experience. An unseen voice and a physical guide encourage participants on an introspective journey, exploring both virtual spaces and the physical room through 3D sound and touch.
Deus Ex Machina
Lola Ajima, Ingvild Skandsen, Lasse Munk
3 March 2020 - 25 April 2020
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 Intonal Festival in collobaration with Sound Spaces in April 2020. For the Make Sound 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.
Changing soundscapes
Jonna Hägg
1 January 2020 - 31 December 2020
During the last months Jonna Hägg has been listening and observing the soundscapes of different islands, recording a lot of sound from these places. At IAC she will continue processing the collected material, create new soundscapes inspired by her observations of how we no longer can differentiate between natural and manmade sound environments. “Natural” nature sounds and manmade sounds are always mixed together, wherever we are.
Brewer & Blennow
Sanna Blennow, Elise Brewer
11 November 2019 - 15 November 2020
Working in the field of performance and contemporary dance, Sanna Blennow & Elise Brewer incorporate sound in their movement practice as a way to think around and create dance and performance from another angle. By developing and executing exercises where they drain our vocabulary of words, investigating the connection between gestures and spoken word, they are scattering, shifting and peeling off what makes sense in a speaking and communicative body. This creates a playground where fantasy is invited, and also where new ideas can expand and unfold.
Critical Dialogs
Christine Antaya, Matthew Rana
15 June 2019 - 31 December 2020
‘Critical Dialogs’ is a contemporary art podcast that will investigate the latent potential of the podcast format to support critical dialogue and innovative forms of art criticism. ‘Critical Dialogs’ will explore emergent approaches to and forms for art criticism that are enabled by today’s media landscape and changing public sphere. Pilot episodes will take the form of conversations among professional art critics on topical issues such as decolonizing/queering art criticism, and the ethics of critique.
Halla Steinunn Stefánsdóttir
Halla Steinunn Stefánsdóttir
1 August 2015 - 31 August 2021
Halla Steinunn Stefánsdóttir has been the artistic director of Nordic Affect since its inception in 2005. Believing that the exciting things happen "in the connection" Halla Steinunn’s work with the ensemble has been a tour de force when it comes to collaborative relationships with composers, visual artists, and producers. Furthermore she’s brought the spotlight to women’s role in music history, leading to projects such as HÚN/SHE which was broadcast by the European Broadcasting Service in 2015.

With degrees from The Royal Danish Academy of Music and Indiana University School of Music, Halla Steinunn now holds a PhD position in artistic research at Lund University, in a time where the divide between creator and performer is being questioned in theoretical writings and in practice.
