    PANELDISKUSSION:
    ORGAN & MUSIC ENGINEERING
     
     

    OBS! Paneldiskussion hålls på svenska

    NB! The panel discussion is held in Swedish

     

    17:00-18:30 ARTISTEN, OHLINSALEN (B301) (Fritt inträde)

     

    Paneldiskussionen leds av David Karlsson.

     

    Panelen består av:

    Elsbeth Berg, Levande Musik

    Hans Davidsson, Göteborgs internationella orgelakademi

    Mats Lindström, Elektronmusikstudion
    Michael Eriksson, Chalmers
    Peter Christensson, Chalmers

     

    Temat ansluter till det övergripande temat för Göteborgs internationella orgelfestival 2019: "Orgeln som mekaniskt musikaliskt underverk”.

     

    Samtidigt diskuterar vi i olika nätverk möjligheter till en musikhall för nutida konstmusik, placering av den tidigare konserthusorgeln från Konserthuset (Marcussen 1937) tillsammans med EMS högtalaranläggning och elektronisk signalutrustning, kanske i samma sal, och på Chalmers introduceras ett nytt gränsöverskridande spår inom utbildningen: Music engineering.

     

    Hur kan orgelkonsten och ingenjörskonsten korsbefrukta varandra på bästa sätt?

     

    Hur skapar vi nya klangvärldar, ny orgelkonst och t ex hyperorglar genom tvärdisciplinär samverkan?
