Unit for Sound Practice Research and the Electronic Music Studios presents Mats Lindström.
Mats will talk about both his own musical work (most of it has a significant social component), and well as present an overview of new music and sound art in Sweden and the activities of EMS, the venerable Swedish national electronic music studio. A rare chance to get inside information on one of the most important centers for experimental sound work in Europe.
Born 1960 in Sweden, Mats Lindstrom works as as a composer and a musician, often with strains of live-electronics. With a background as technician in electronics industry he has constructed unique electronic musical instruments. He often works with intermedia, scenic elements and visual arts as a complement to the music, and he has worked both with music for theatre and dance. He has been a member of the Fylkingen society for new music and intermedia since the eighties. He worked as producer for the Fylkingen society 1992-95 and as president 1998-2000. During 2002-2003 he worked as festival coordinator for the Stockholm New Music festival. In 2004 he became the Director of the Elektronmusikstudion (EMS) in Stockholm.
