Guest composers to Sirius: Kajsa Lindgren and Cristian Vogel

Notam has considered all applications to the Nordic Culture Point residency number two in Studio Sirius, and have chosen two projects to share the stay, which will be implemented in the second half of 2017. We hope our many great applicants will return to us in later rounds! The next deadline for applying is 10 August.

Kajsa Lindgren is a composer, sound artist and field recordist with a master in electro acoustic composition and a great interest in exploring environments and different kinds of structures through a sound-perspective. Her compositions often focus on sound field recording and she is also developing an eco acoustic perspective within the music. In her view, field recordings can help you get in contact with and learn about new environments, subjects, cultures, structures and living things within them with both an artistic and scientific approach to the recording, the material and the composition process.

Cristian Vogel is a long-term innovator in the composition, mixing and performance of electronic sounds. Spanning over 20 years in the vanguard of European electronic music, his work has been acknowledged as an outstanding influence in the fields of composition for stage, club culture and studio.

The residencies are part of a three-year program for guest artists, made possible through funding from the Nordic Culture Point. The program runs until summer 2019. Composers and sound artists based in the Nordic and Baltic countries (except Norway) can apply. Guest stays focus on multi-channel work for surround sound. There are 2 long-term stays per year (up to 2 months). Travel and subsistence costs are covered and we offer salary depending on the length of stay (max 20,000 kroner for 2 months). In addition, office space, extended access to our new 24-channel surround sound studio and help from our technicians are offered.
