Pin May 19 your calendars - we're excited to present a fully acoustic double-concert with American violinist and composer Austin Larkin and Stockholm-based composer and musician Mattias Hållsten in the iconic Hägerstensmedborgarhus.

Tickets at the door: 150/100 SEK.

Austin Larkin is a composer and violinist focusing on elements of tone within the interstices of fields, asymmetries, and patterns. His performance and practice is informed by research into dimensions of vibrating bodies. He will be performing solo violin in the mode of his recent album Violin Liquid Phases, which focuses on the psychoacoustic possibilities of the violin- harmonic tuning, rhythmic phasing, spectral bowing; as well as perceptual structures and landscapes of energy.

In 2023, Hållsten made his debut release on Stockholm-based label Thanatosis with the album Breathing, bowing, featuring works for shō and viola da gamba, which was nominated at the Manifestgalan 2024 in the category "Best experimental music".
