On August 31, you’ll get the chance to experience musician and composer Anton Friisgaard perform and tell about the music which he created during his residency in The Sound Laboratory.

At this event, you can learn more about The Sound Laboratory and the music which Anton Friisgaard has created under his residency. The Sound Laboratory is a contemporary studio in Musikhuset København where he has explored the musical possibilities of the comprehensive collection of musical gear from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s.

Friisgaard tells about his residency in The Sound Laboratory:

What I find most exciting is exploring the symbiosis between the old and new technology. I’m exploring how to control the old machines with new technology and vice versa. This interaction between the modern machinery and the old sound equipment can lead me down new pathways to new worlds of sound. That’s part of what I want to showcase at this event.

Book your free ticket here. NOTE: There’s a very limited capacity at the event.

About The Sound Laboratory

The Sound Laboratory is a collaboration between Art Music Denmark and Strøm. With the project, Strøm and Art Music Denmark wish to both preserve and at the same time activate the cultural heritage which is related to the electronic equipment that’s been used decades ago.

Through the preservation of the musical machines, the aim is to avoid that our memory of the history of sound art in Denmark will be lost.  However, an even more important aspect of the project is to look forward and examine how the availability of this heritage can influence experimental electronic music and sound art in the future.

As part of the project, the equipment has been made available to use for the two musicians Anton Friisgaard and Guðjón Andri. who have experimented with it and examined its possibilities and musical expressions. The equipment has either been lent or donated by Gunner Møller Pedersen Fuzzy, Bjørn Svin and private collectors like Frederik Birket-Smith and Klaus Nielsen. All the equipment has been collected in cooperation with Maple Pools.
