Göteborg Art Sounds 2016

The 2016 festival had the musical ”in-betweens” as its point of origin. Over nine days between October 21-29, the festival presented musical expressions seeking to explore the “in-betweens”.

The aim with the festival was to explore a state where art forms and genres were converted and transformed into something new, and where art reverberated and was conveyed and transferred – from artist to audience and back – simultaneously making us both listeners and perceivers. As a festival, we regard music as an open source of knowledge, where different genres are able to meet and transform. The festival featured regular concerts, sound installations, performing arts, workshops, talks and masterclasses.
