The Connect festival returns to IAC again this year, with a cross-disciplinary live performance, including electro-acoustic musical works, video installation and live performance, in collaboration with the students from Malmö Theate Academy. In a combined performance, six individual acts will explore and reveal their performances under the shared title, “Displays of Love”.
Connect is a three-day festival, arranged by Tongeneration and the composition students from Malmö Academy of Music. Its aim is to present a varied take on today’s contemporary art music, with music written in the continuous development of Western art music, either for traditional ensemble settings or for more obscure ones. The festival also focuses strongly on exploring and evolving the versatile opportunities provided in an electro-acoustic setting.
This year the festival’s theme is love, since most of the concerts were originally set to be performed on and around Valentine’s day, with the featured artists Vindla String Quartet, REAKTION ensemble, solo harpist Tanne Harder and performers from MHM and THS.
Due to Covid, however, the whole festival will be recorded and made available digitally from March 12th to the 14th.
The detailed programme will follow soon.
