In the borderland between song and speech.
Håkan Lundström
1 April 2012 - 15 January 2022
This project spans over several language and music settings in societies where oral transmission of culture dominates.

ARTs, agency and social mobility
Ylva Hofvander Trulsson
1 April 2015 - 31 December 2019
his research study by Ylva Hofvander Trulsson focused on intergenerational discourses and dialogue on Sami culture and its relationship to contemporary society in Sweden and Norway. In Hofvander Trulsson’s previous research a strong discourse on social mobility and ‘class remobility’ has been found in relation to learning music and arts. Culture, music and arts can be assumed to strengthen the Sami habitus and create a social reconstruction of Sami identity and agency.

Music in Movement
Stefan Östersjö, The Six Tones, Marie Fahlin
3 January 2011 - 31 December 2011
'Music in Movement' is a multi-disciplinary research project funded by the Swedish Research Council (VR) initiated by the Swedish guitarist Stefan Östersjö. The project builds on an expanded notion of musical gesture and the concept of merging the practices of choreographer and composer in the production of musical works that are conceived not merely as sonic entities but as compound units of sound and visual gesture. Music in Movement attempts to develop artistic strategies that allow musical composition and choreography to amalgamate and give rise to novel modes of expression.

Female Prayers
Nevin Tuna Erönde
15 November 2021 - 21 November 2021
'Female Prayers' is based on the idea that one day we will hear female voices calling for prayer in public spaces. A peaceful message, where soundscapes are used as a medium to explore social and cultural issues, religion and gender through the lens of intersectionality. The story is unfolding through spoken letters addressed to the artist Nevin Tuna Erönde’s, late maternal grandmother, who was a practicing Muslim. Erönde re-connects to her by drawing parallels between the Muslim spiritual practices, and her own yoga practice. The performative art installation removes the boundaries between the audience and scene.

tim bishop
9 June 2021 - 13 June 2021
"Blackout" is a sensory performance and sound work for one person at a time. 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.
Immersive Days #1: Hush
elin maria johansson, vibeke bryld

Creativities transcending boundaries
Anna Houmann, Eva Saether
10 May 2021 - 21 May 2021
This year’s project will focus on ”Uncertainty and Possibility” emerging as both theoretical concepts and fields of empirical investigation, as students and researchers seek new creative, hopeful and speculative modes of understanding and intervening in a world of crisis. Advancing a practical agenda for future making, it will reveal how uncertainty can be engaged as a generative ”technology” for understanding, researching and intervening the world.
BARBARA
Moa Franzén
3 May 2021 - 6 June 2021
The project “Barbara” (the feminine form of the Greek word barbarous, meaning strange, uncivilized, someone who speaks a broken speech) will depart from Moa Franzén’s work with voice as a choreographic material and tool. Through vocal practices Moa will explore different expressions of what is considered human – as well as nonhuman, or “subhuman” – and how we use them or suppress them according to gendered, social, ideological or private grounds. Where and how is the border between the human and the animal crossed? Where, and when, are the in-betweens and how do they sound? For which bodies?
“The Garden”, Sound Bench at Botan
Jonna Hägg
3 May 2021 - 24 June 2021
The Sound Environment Centre has acquired a sound bench for different sound experiments, artistic projects and the communication of research. During the Sustainability Week and until mid-summer, the bench will be placed in the Botanical Garden, where a site-specific sound artwork has been developed especially for the bench. For several years, the artist behind the work, Jonna Hägg, has been exploring how the soundscape of the world in general is changing. Human sounds have become so pervasive on earth that we have created a third category just for them: anthropophony. The sound installation is a collaboration between the Sound Environment Centre, the Botanical Garden and the Inter Arts Center, which produced the installation.

Lowlands
Karis Zidore, Emma Cecilia Ajanki, Lea Paulsen
26 April 2021 - 9 May 2021
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.

Transmediating meaning
Janneke Schoene
1 September 2020 - 31 May 2021
‘Transmediating meaning’ analyses audio guides as complex transmedial formats with multiple media shifts: Visual objects, sculptures, paintings, etc., are translated into spoken text whose characteristics, perceptions and readings differ from the ‘original’. An examination of these differences is crucial for the democratic application of audio guides for different visitor groups such as visually impaired visitors that are widely excluded from the art discourse.

From Soul to Other
Martine Flor
1 September 2020 - 28 November 2020
This project seeks to investigate technology and its influence on reading and narration in the construction of a coherent and autonomous self. Departing from a Lacanian understanding of language, it seeks to trace the impact of a digital Other on subjectivation: what would the impact of a digital Other completely indifferent of its subjects be? An Other that lacks what is fundamentally human, such as temporality, death and empathy? An Other that repeals the distance between self and market necessary for critical judgment?
The Tactilist
Mariella Louise Otto, Daniel Wade
7 August 2020 - 27 September 2020
