“Gothenburg’s only annual festival of contemporary art music in all its exciting range, from chamber music to recorded ljudkonst, improvisation, free folk, electronica, noise. Two passionate party nights in Brew House packed with curious and experimental music. Two days of experimental music and sounds. 10th and 11th of October. It was a really interesting event. what really caught my attention (except from all the people crating strange sounds on both the scenes) were Jorg Piringer, Ernst Reiter Maier from IFTAF (Institute For Trans-Acoustic Research). You can purchase their stuff from their web-shop.
