Lennart Westman is a composer who often uses the studios here at EMS and initiates several projects yearly. So far this year, he has traveled to Mexico and Argentina, presenting Swedish Electroacoustic music. His next project is a little different: living next to a building site in Stockholm he became inspired while enjoying the construction sounds from his balcony. He recorded some, to make a piece of the recorded material. He has also involved photographer Josef Doukkali and together they will make a film/bildspiel reflecting the birth of the new building. Read an article about it in Swedish.
There is also a short radio programme about it.
And another one on P4 (no longer available).
Listen from 9:40 on!
The building company, NCC, are financing this artistic project and the end result on DVD will be offered as a "moving in" present to the future inhabitants of the building! Nice idea!
