The Gas Festival 2018 present four evenings on Atalante with many concerts, talks and others. The first evening was dedicated to a collaboration between composers, musician, writers and video artists. This is the first part.
Contemporary music, readings, images, text fragments. A Shrinking Emptiness is as much concert as it is an installation and a lecture. An audiovisual landscape, a temporary room that the listener is welcomed into.
A Shrinking Emptiness is a project created, staged and performed by Gothenburg based composers and musicians Anders Hultqvist, Stefan Östersjö, Ole Lützow-Holm, Jörgen Dahlqvist, Jakob Riis, Gunnar D Hansson, Halla Stefansdottir and contemporary music ensemble Mimitabu.
The program is divided into two parts with an intermission.
Act 1. Concert (53 min.)
a: A Shrinking Emptiness – Entropic Pleasures III by Anders Hultqvist performed by Mimitabu
Poetry readings – Gunnar D Hansson
b: Traces of Oblivion by Ole Lützow-Holm with Stefan Östersjö – Guitar and
Jakob Riis – Laptop
Audio Paper on Traces of Oblivion
Act 2. A Shrinking Emptiness (47 min.)
In the form of a Live Audio/visual paper, parts of an acoustical ecological landscape are both formed and examined. The presentation combines an audio landscape – which in turn is composed of material from some previous projects – with readings, musical compositions, images and text fragments.
