International symposiums about music technology and inclusion


We arrange two international symposiums about inclusion as the starting point of technical and artistic development within the music field.

During the symposiums, we will emphasise the possibilities – for the individual and for the arts – that music technology offers. We will discuss what is going on in the world around us right now and what we want the future to be like.

9th April in Nässjö, Sweden – Kulturhuset Pigalle [ download the programme]
10th April in Västerås, Sweden – Västerås Concert Hall [ download the programme]

• What does inclusive work mean to the artistic process?
• How can music technology unlock new doors for practitioners and pave the way for artistic development?
• What does it mean to work with an inclusive ensemble – as a musician and as a composer?

Representatives from ShareMusic & Performing Arts, invited Swedish and international guests and participants from the development project Digital Technique in Interdisciplinary Artistic Processes will take part in the conversation. Also, ShareMusic’s ensemble, Elefantöra will, together with Gageego!, perform the five pieces that have been composed this far – especially for them – as part of the project.

Time: 9.30am – 4.30pm
Price: 500 SEK
Students 100 SEK
