INTONAL 2017For the third consecutive year, Inkonst and Inter Arts Center proudly present Intonal festival in partnership with CTM and Unsound. As ever, Intonal celebrates musical expressions off the beaten track – from exciting journeys into sound to experimental club music and energetic live performances. Art, installations and artist talks will also constitute integral parts of the festival.This year we’ve challenged ourselves to broaden the festival even further, both in terms of developing the actual programme and taking on the city of Malmö itself. The heart of Intonal will of course be Inkonst and IAC but we’ll also branch out towards Värnhemstorget to the east and the Pildamms Park to the west, where a graceful church and a former water tower respectively will serve as temporary venues for the festival, linking old architecture with new music.
The line-up is more varied than ever before. Holly Herndon’s hyper-intelligent yet emotive music will through Toresch and Lena Willikens encounter the rougher side of Düsseldorf. Great Britain’s rising star Beatrice Dillon’s dazzling rhythmical abilities and Ghédalia Tazartès’ poetic patchworks will convene with the singular and beautiful resonances of Grouper’s and William Basinski’s. These potent meetings between different timbres, tempos and temperaments constitute the very core of Intonal. Collaboration between different players on the alternative cultural scene, all contributing with their own unique perspectives, is the basis for the festival’s very existence.
Intonal is a headstrong festival and we’re picky. We’re looking for performers that dare to venture beyond their own artistic limitations; that dare to be singular, subtle and sublime. We also place a lot of trust in the festival’s visitors – we want them to be daring, headstrong and open to new expressions as well as the very spirit of Intonal: the enthusiasm, the adventurousness and the certainty that this event has the potential to be a truly great experience if we just let it in under our skins. For a growing number of music aficionados, Intonal has become a self-evident visit just because the content of the festival is never self-evident. Last weekend of April, Malmö will be occupied by a four-day regime of experimental culture, electronic music and interdisciplinary alliances. Curious? Then you’re invited. As a teaser before the main festival, this year will also see an Intonal Preparty held on the 18th of March featuring a live-set by rRoxymore - one of the highlights from last year’s festival.
