Svedjesång – a music and art performance created by Écran with guests
Svedjesång consists songs, thoughts, voices about human choice and activities in an unpredictable, revolutionary and remarkable time.
Écran is Erik Högström’s experimental analog synth project (more info further down this page).
Écran’s focus has so far been mainly instrumental musical, with some vocal features. But this time, a newly written, partly experimental text material inspired by contemporary talks, memories and echoes from the past will be woven into the pieces. The collaboration with Nos (Fredrik Holm) and Baby Sage (Miranda Gjerstad) has been close and deep already from the start. The group produces repetitive and suggestive pieces on both older and modern electronic instruments. The dancer and choreographer Daniel Jeremiah Persson is embodying the work with site-specific dance.
Other participants: Doris Bengtsson (installation), Rasmus Alkestrand (sitar), Åsa Gjerstad (cello), Alex Berg and Sally O’Neill (dance), Kristian Nihlén (projections and lights), Henrik Wallin (further set of analogue module synthesizers). Took place in S:t Johannes church in Malmö 17th february.

Écran -an analog synth music project                                                                                                                          The analogue synth project in which I am finding my way into making synth music, using old school sequencers, synths and organs to create melodical voices and a personal electronical sound. I do also sing a song or two, eventhough the concerts are mainly instrumental. The music could roughly be described as old school synth pop/ambient/minimalism. There should always be some guest musicians involved in the concerts, like: Rasmus Alkestrand, Per Lindmark, Elina Nygren, Jonatan Sersam, Ying-Hsueh Chen, Sara Wilén, Erik Rask, Imad Al Tamimi, Ida Tholfsson and Elin Waileth. Further down, two studio recorded pieces:

Taggotagg!                                                                                                                                                                      The Taggotagg! gallery events are meant to be sprawling meetings with elements of inspiring artistical expressions and discussions. Welcoming, playful, unruly and political pieces side by side with stuff with an air of subtle expressions and nuances… This means any art form. A Taggotagg! salon is mostly consisting several artist’s works. the Taggotagg! events has, since the start in 2014, been held at Friisgatan 16, Suellska villan, Galleri 21 and Molekyl gallery in Malmö. See more photos in the Photos and stuff gallery!
