KROCK (electric guitar ensemble) is a swedish collective of musicians and composers, formed in 2005, which is focusing on new, contemporary, art music for electric guitars, but also older (classical) and forgotten works in new arrangements. Our goal is to collaborate frequently and close with national and international composers and musicians, experimenting and finding new ways to play the instrument, and make the electric guitar a more obvious and natural part of the contemporary scene.

Tony Blomdahl– Sequence

Ensemble Parkour is aiming for alternative ways through music: venturesome, but without loosing the balance and with the pace steadily forward. The ensemble consists of three wind instruments and voice and was formed during the work with Sten Sandell’s piece ”Det soniska ansvaret”. The ensemble now has a new collobration with the composer Fredrik Gran and we´ll give you the first performance of his new piece “Music beyond the surface”.

“Physics talks about the "unified field", the deeper level of anything that exists. If you dive down into something, its world enlarges. If you dive deep the fish gets bigger.”
