Intonal Residency
Sebastian Mullaert, Nathan Larson, Subchamber Ensemble
20 January 2020 - 15 March 2020

25 April 2020 – World premiere at Malmö Live concert hall as part of the INTONAL Experimental music festival | 23-26 April 2020

Sebastian Mullaert, Nathan Larson, the Subchamber Ensemble and Inkonst meet Malmö Live concert hall – a project where electronic dance music and classical music meet and invent the future of neoclassical music.

The project is primarily a collaboration between the electronic musician Sebastian Mullaert, Inkonst and Malmö Live concert hall. With a world premiere at Intonal 2020 at Malmö Live, the project, which lasts over 1.5 years, wants to develop new methods for the combination of electronic dance music and classical music. The first part of the project is concerned with building the right ensemble, the second part is dedicated to the creative process and the last part aims at the completion, promotion and premiere of the work.

When you listen to Sebastian Mullaert’s music you will feel something enchanting, a resonance that delivers truth, integrityand reminds us to simply be. The Swedish artist has a distinct approach to life, as well as music, which is centred around tranquillity, stillness and the convergence of Zen meditation, nature and creativity. Known for his work as one half of Minilogue, Sebastian is also an accomplished solo artist with new material ready to roll. As an artist that is constantly evolving he has taken a bold new direction in his sonic exploration, immersing himself in the neo-classical scene and joining forces with one of the top 10 philharmonic orchestras in the world – Tonhalle Zürich. Working with great care and innovation he has created a truly immersive audio-visual performance experience, combining a mesmerising integration of electronic and classical instrumentation, with a visual art installation based on breath taking nature landscapes shot from a helicopter perspective. With such an innovative approach he aims to bridge the gap between classical and electronic music and introduce a whole new generation to the neo-classical concept.
