Gram[m]ofon with Mats AlmegårdDon't DJ, Saturday, 18:00, Inkonst, The Bar
Mats Almegård is a cultural journalist and PhD in German literature. He has been writing about electronic and experimental music for more than a decade in Swedish and international media. A record player, or a Gram[m]ofon, is more than just a device that plays back music. Combine it with a record collection and you have a machine that plays back a person’s history. If a record collection could be said to be the soundtrack of your life, the record player might just tell us who you are. At Intonal, Mats Almegård will place the needle in the hands of Don't DJ.
Stephen McEvoyTwenty Ongoing Tones, 2018Sound and video installation, 20 minLocation: Inter Arts Center, corridor by the entrance and Red Room
Twenty Ongoing Tones is an audio-visual project based around resynthesized tinnitus sounds, created from interviews with twenty people who have tinnitus. These volunteers described their tinnitus in detail, along with information about how it began, and how it makes them feel. Using these interviews as a reference, the tinnitus sounds of each person were recreated, and the results of this recreation presented as a sequence of twenty tones, each lasting exactly one minute, providing a brief window into the internal sound world of another person. Accompanying the tinnitus sounds are oscilloscope-based visuals and fragments of the interviews.
Jørgen TellerStatic Ex Static – Elevator diaries from Athens, 2018Installation with video, sound and textLocation: Inter Arts Center, VR/Sound Lab
Static Ex Static is a poetic compilation of sounds, thoughts and images from a visit in Athens and a meeting with the newly restored EMS Synthi 100 cult-synthesizer in the KSYME studio - started by Iannis Xenakis among others in 1979. The visual side consists of short videos with a kind of “electro acid painting” of elevator trips in skyscrapers and of interiors from Athens. The sonic side includes both static and ecstatic passages with the sound of the amazing EMS Synthi 100 moving through the PA. In addition, fragments from diaries and photos are glued directly on the wall. The diary will be recited live sporadically during the festival.

In a collective effort to anticipate the future, we are learning to stay with the trouble. The trouble of living and dying, together on a damaged earth.In this space we allow ourselves to “become with” the dark network of the cephalopod molluscs, such as octopuses, cuttlefish and squids. The body of the cephalopod is tender and pliant. Their highly decentralized nervous system re-locates brainpower throughout the body, into a myriad of local neural networks - feelers of extreme sensibility.We invite you to dissolve and de-normalize in a space of speculative fabulation, feminist mythology, immersive audio and sound as touch. Our bodies will be activated when we expand into softness.
