#4. Elektronmusikstudion (EMS)
<http://rwm.macba.cat/en/specials/ems-mats-lindstrom/capsula>. With Mats
In 1953, after attending the first Swedish Radio and Fylkingen Society
electronic music concert with Pierre Henry and Pierre Schaeffer, Swedish
artist Öyvind Fahlström wrote a manifesto for concrete poetry. More than a
decade later, the Swedish Radio broadcasted his pioneer radio piece “Fåglar
I Sverige (Birds in Sweden)”. In the decades that followed, the complexity
and broad spectrum of productions coming out of the Elektronmusikstudion
(EMS), founded by Karl Birger in 1964, made it a hub for artists. But while
the text-sound scene was in and out of the Sound Workshop, Knut Wiggen, the
first director of the EMS, channelled his energy into the futuristic dream
of creating a world-class computer music studio for experts and scholars.
*3- PROBES series. Curated by Chris Cutler
PROBES <http://rwm.macba.cat/en/probes_tag> takes Marshall McLuhan’s
conceptual contrapositions as a starting point to analyse and expose the
search for a new sonic language made urgent after the collapse of tonality
in the twentieth century. The series looks at the many probes and
experiments that were launched in the last century in search of new musical
resources, and a new aesthetic; for ways to make music adequate to a world
transformed by disorientating technologies.

Indian instruments in Western Music here.

*SON[I]A #244. Laura Mulvey
Laura Mulvey contextualises, updates, and elucidates on the far-reaching
impact of this key text, which she revised in later essays such as “Death
24 x a Second. Stillness and the moving image”. At the same time, she opens
up the debate with the notions of the “queer gaze” and the “universal
whiteness” of Hollywood. Mulvey also defends orality as a form of "history
from below", citing the example of “compilation films” (films that use
archival footage re-written with new narrative) as a space for a new
feminist film practice.
