Göteborg Art Sounds 2016 is over
Göteborg Art Sounds 2016 is over and we are extremely happy with this edition!
This was a festival of contrasts. From sound installations by the river to falling grand pianos at Göteborgas Konserthus. Obnoxious improv at Stora Teatern, a world premiere in Hagakyrkan, workshops at Atalante and at Högskolan för Scen och Musik. Sold out concerts by Göteborgs Symfoniker and the most beautiful noise from the German ensemble zeitkratzer. Ambient and seemingly unmoving sound worlds paired with the unexpected and the radiantly, sounds and melodies that was transformed into noise and silence.
We want to extend a massive THANK YOU to all our collaboration partners, venues, funding bodies, participating musicians and composers, technicians, producers and all of you who came to listen and experience this with us!
We’ll be seeing you around!
