Lemna + Virpi Pahkinen | Dukkha
Virpi translate Lemnas tones into dance. A collaboration that resolves in the name of Dukkha.

We try to escape from 'Dukkha', which is all the unpleasant feelings, like suffering, sadness, boredom, unsatisfactory, sense of emptiness or hopelessness etc, but we can never escape from it because it is already part of our life as long as we live.

This is a process of understanding and accepting how we live with 'Dukkha'.

I Maiko, who have put myself into the experimental dance music scene for a long time as an electronic music composer, would like to re-explore the relationship between electronic music and dance.

This time I wrote music under the theme of 'Dukkha' for the collaboration with dancer Virpi Pahkinen.

Gahlmm is unique in Swedish music life with members from several different genres within experimental art music: free improvisation, score music and electronics. The ensemble was formed in 2018, at the initiative of RANK, for a Sweden tour on the occasion of FST's 100th anniversary, and the members have for many years demonstrated high-quality performances on both the national and international stage.

Christian Skjødt Hasselstrøm (he/him) is a Danish artist and composer working in the intersection between sound, visual art and science.

Interdependencies I takes both its conceptual and sonic departure in a self-built analogue electronic instrument, that explores electrical interdependence. In a sort of zero-sum game this microtonal device consists of eight tone-generators, where the individual generator struggles with the others for the available electricity in the interconnected system.
