Outreach Open Labs

Free entry

Our festival outreach project invites audiences to attend Open Labs, showcases of this year’s four initiatives for children and students at Aarhus Musikskole. The initiatives are oriented towards goals of not only stimulating communities in Aarhus, but also providing the workshop leaders with tools to do similar work in their own communities.

Adele Kosman [SE] and Ragnheiður Erla Björnsdóttir [IS] led a workshop that facilitated artistic collaboration through the sharing of field recording. Domenico Mannelli [DK] engaged participants in reframing the compositional process through the poetic perspective of an architect. Raphael Mak’s [SE] workshop served as an introduction and exploration of modular methods of composing. Participants of Sean Bell [NO] and Harald Jordal Johannessen’s [NO] workshop used visual models and graphical representations to develop their own musical languages and experimented with their sonic realizations. The outreach project is supervised by Lasse D. Hansen and Mathias Madsen Munch in close collaboration with Christian Kraglund and Aarhus Musikskole.
