August 18 – 19, 2012
What will the national hymn sound like one thousand years from now? Will it be played on already existing instruments – which even today are over hundred years old – or will it be played on electronic, anatomic or mechanic instruments not yet invented? In the workshop, the participants will confront these questions, followed by a task to construct their own instruments. These will later be part of an ensemble-based installation in which visitors can perform and present their own suggestions of national hymns for the next millennium.
Day 1: The workshop starts with a short introduction and continues with instrument-making using found materials.
Day 2: The participants will present their constructions and collaboratively build an installation in the gallery space.
The workshop will be held in Swedish and English.
