Acousmatic Lab #3
March 29th - April 18th
In the Red Room a smaller version of the Acousmonium will be set up with around 20 speakers. For two weeks the space will be open for different practices. In particular the students of the electroacoustic music courses at the Malmö Academy of Music are going to get acquainted with the techniques of sound diffusion, presenting their final work on the 10th of April. Acousmatic music diverges from the standards of instrumental music, composed in a studio and projected live through a constellation of speakers.

The Age of Distance
April 12th - April 18th
The project takes it outset in the previous work, ‘Hush’, a 10 min sensorial VR installation that lets the user become the subject of a Northern myth. During their research time at IAC, the artists will experiment on how to deepen the relationship between the inner experience and the physical space around us. For this purpose, both light, image and interactive techniques are used. The aim is to shift the sensorial experience from the virtual area to the real one, thereby strengthening the sensorial experience of the work.

Electro moves – Game Changers
Elin Lundgren & Petter Pettersson
April 22nd - June 10th
The work-in-progress project ‘Electromoves - Game Changers' is a workshop in electro-composition and choreographed audience interaction in 3 parts. Lundgren & Pettersson aim to explore, make a pre-study and an electric soundscape in collaboration with the Malmö based musician & singer Cecilia Nordlund. They will investigate group affiliation and exclusion with a focus on the viewer's attitude and what governs the narrative and group dynamics in a live work through a workshop at IAC.

April 26th - May 9th
Tumbling into the space after sadness, ‘Lowlands’ is a soft lament to the voice of self critique. The work shapes a meditative landscape of rippling blue tissue paper that lulls and endures. Images emerge evoking a body falling apart and gathering itself together again, a body at sea and a body on a patchwork of waves. 'Lowlands' is a large-scale solo performance by choreographer Emilia Gasiorek that spans the deep blue depths of our personal emotional landscapes and collective geographical environments.

IASPIS residency
Paolo Thorsen-Nagel
March 1st - June 16th
For “Your sonic medicine” Paolo Thorsen-Nagel will be conducting practical research on different modes of listening. How we perceive sound in relation to space, both physical and mental, will be the driving question for a series of sonic investigations revolving around our listening sense. These experimental settings aim to produce both, more documentary findings, as well as interactive and performative works.

Öresund Collegium for Artistic Research
Artistic Research at Malmö Theatre Academy

The Öresund Collegium for Artistic Research aims to develop collaborations with researchers, artists and their respective institutions in the Öresund region. Its point of departure resides in the fertile and versatile artistic and academic culture prevailing in the area: the three academies of the Faculty of Fine and Performing Arts, the other faculties of LU, the neighbouring universities on both sides of the Öresund, as well as a plethora of local artistic, cultural, social and ecological agents.
