The closing weekend for the 2022 edition of Göteborg Art Sounds is almost upon us! So far, the festival has treated us to some truly amazing moments. From the amazing opening concert at Vasakyrkan last Saturday, via free improv with students and established musicians to the myriad of expressions that has been EME so far. Not to mention the grand scale orchestra concerts at Göteborgs Konserthus. But we still have some good stuff coming up Friday and Saturday October 21-22.

Montreal based sound artist Myriam Boucher presents the work The Tuning of the Fields, a work that tends to evoke those moments of solitude and wonder, and that feeling of suspended time that inhabits us when listening to the song of the crickets, eyes closed, at night, lying in a field. Montreal based artists France Jobin and Markus Heckmann presents the audiovisual work Entanglement, which is an artistic project at the crossroads of scientific research inspired by the concept and properties of entanglement in quantum physics and quantum fields theory.
