SOUND SPACES – Carte blanche à Caroline Profanter
Caroline Profanter
Location: Red Room

Carte blanche à Caroline Profanter # Acousmatic music performed on 24 loudspeakers.

Caroline Profanter works in the field of electroacoustic music and sound art as a composer and performer. Her focus lies on acousmatic composition, soundscapes and live electronics. She is interested in sounds and noises taken from the context of everyday life, transformed digitally and used as pure material. Therefore collects she and classifies recorded sounds and relates them to instrumental sounds or generated sounds, from analog synthesizers and feedback-systems. She collaborates with different musicans and artists within interdisciplinary projects between video, literature and radio art.

The main idea with SOUND SPACES is to colonize locations specifically chosen for a certain sound, creating an intimate relationship between the music and the space surrounding it. The architectural properties of the specific place will be illuminated through the aural force occupying it. The physical and the sonic space will enter in a dialogue where eventually both will be mutually expanded and/or manipulated.

For the opening as well as the finale of the festival there will be a trumpet quartet giving an open-air concert with music especially written for the occasion in two iconic places of Malmö (Malmö Konsthall and Möllevångstorget).

During the festival you will experience acousmatic music performed by Hanna Hartman, Caroline Profanter, Kent Olofsson, Alessandro Perini, an electric guitar concert with Carlo Siega in the church of St Pauli, a concert in a local art gallery (Galleri 21) with music for flute and electronics, harmonica, as well as experimental performances and ice blocks.

The festival SOUND SPACES takes place for the first time in Malmö and is arranged by Ars Nova / Hertzbreakerz. The full festival runs from May 18th to June 10th, 2018.
