Interference #4

Interference is both a festival and symposium. It is concerned with encounters between art and science where dialogues of the unfinished work, the art in the making, is central. Interference takes shape as a laboratory for artistic research where artistic processes are at the heart of the investigation. Participants: Katt Hernandez, Deniz Peters, John Hanse, Peter Spissky, Sara Wilén, Nguyen Thanh Thuy, Jörgen Dahlqvist, Kent Olofsson, Linda Ritzén and Stefan Östersjö

Interference #3 welcomes a special guest from Kunstuniversität Graz in Austria, the pianist and artistic researcher Deniz Peters. He is currently leading a senior research project on musical improvisation in collaboration with a number of artists around Europe, including Nguyen Thanh Thuy and Stefan Östersjö. The three musicians get together for a concert performance on the Thursday evening in the Red Room at the Inter Arts Center. The working sessions start at 10 in the morning of the same day and continue through the Saturday. On Friday evening, the program includes the premiere of a Skellefteå/Malmö, a new theatre piece by Jörgen Dahlqvist with music by Kent Olofsson at Bastionen, for which separate tickets must be obtained. All other events are entry free.

The entire program is structured around a number of themes. The aim is to invite to a dialogue between different artistic projects. The core of the event is these interactions between PhD candidates at the Malmö Academy of Music but we herewith welcome a general audience to join the conversation.
