Ambient Assembly (Malmö Rowing Club), 18.00–22.00 (free entrance)
Every year, we start off the Intonal festivities with an unpretentious gathering somewhere off site from the festival’s main hub at Inkonst & IAC. In the past, we have visited an old water tower and a shady industrial corner but this year we’re up for a row. Malmö Roddklubb, or Rowing Club, is located quite near the Central station at the eastern point of the channel system enclosing Malmö’s old town center. These channels used to be crucial for the city’s defence and transit but the stale water was also a source of great stench and disease. Nowadays, they’re connected to the sea, bringing the flows of life into the old industrial melting pot that is Malmö.
This is a free event open to everyone and a perfect opportunity for meeting other festival goers, artists and locals. It’s also a golden opportunity to experience world class electronic music in a very peculiar setting.
S:t Johannes Church, 19.00-21.30 (free entrance)
Going to church is a fine old tradition, at least during Intonal. For several years now, we have collaborated with Svenska Kyrkan, or the Church of Sweden, to make the last Thursday of April a holy event for everyone interested in experimental music. The Church of S:t Johannes is a beautiful Jugend church located close to the Triangeln Station and the main festival hub at Inkonst and IAC. Previously, artists like Charlemagne Palestine, Ellen Arkbro and Rrose have benefited from the excellent acoustics, the fine organ and the solemn air in this beloved old brick temple. This year we’re proud to present German experimental legend Limpe Fuchs as well as "In Praise of Profanation", a collection of collaborative renditions of the solo works of Swedish composer Erik Enocksson and American artist Kali Malone, adapted for pipe organ, electronics and choir.
As every year, this is a free event open for everyone but an Intonal festival ticket is the only way to guarantee access. It’s a sizeable church but the Intonal events at S:t Johannes usually draw quite a large crowd.
Hans Appelqvist, 21.30-01.00, Inkonst
After the concerts at the Church of S:t Johannes, we present an unique performance by highly acclaimed composer and artist Hans Appelqvist. About ten years ago, after releasing a number of celebrated albums, he branched out into composing music for film, dance and theatre. He has worked at all the main national theatre and dance institutions in Sweden but Have you ever seen Visitor Q? is his first attempt at Music drama. The performance is a long conversation between two people on a date. It’s also a concert. And it will make you cry, get horny and scared.
