Welcome to Connect festival 2023, an annual music festival focusing on newly composed contemporary music which takes place at three local venues in downtown Malmö. This year’s festival focuses on the theme Paradoxes, and explores its essence in music as well as in life.
We are thrilled to invite you to join us for three days, diving into the world of newly composed music. To perform with us this year, we are proud to present the Göteborg based ensemble Gageego! specialising in exploring and making contemporary music more accessible, and being well appreciated for interpreting today’s music at the highest technical and artistic level in a fun and curious way.
We are also very pleased to present our two recurring events: REAKTION! Ensemble – consisting of handpicked musicians, chosen by the organiser, and a concert in The Red Room at IAC feat. students from Malmö Theatre Academy, set in the world of electro acoustic sounds.
Below you’ll find more information about the individual events and you can click your way to the programmes and information about the composers.
REAKTION! Ensemble is Connect Festivals own in-house ensemble. It is specifically put together with a new constellation for each year’s festival and is comprised by students from Malmö Academy of Music.
Red Shadow is this year’s electro acoustic music and performance-project at Inter Arts Center. All the new pieces are composed by the composer students of the Malmö Academy of Music, and some will even feature theatrical performances by students of the Malmö Theatre Academy.
Gageego! was founded in 1995 and specialises in exploring and making contemporary music more accessible. As one of the most important new forces in Music Sweden, the ensemble is appreciated for interpreting today’s music at the highest technical and artistic level in a fun and curious way.
