PROGRAM (LÅNG VERSION)

TORSDAG 11.8

17:00 - Området öppnar

Inledning och samtal - TBA

Workshop: Cirkulär Elektronisk Musik med Havsmörker (AX)
En workshop för dig som är nyfiken på hur vi med hjälp av elektroniska instrument kan skapa musik av återbrukade ljud i form av fältinspelningar och samplingar. Du får genom olika övningar och tekniker lära dig om byggstenarna till loop-baserad musik samt grunderna i ljuddesign. Workshopen riktar sig till nybörjare inom området och passar för åldrarna 15 år och uppåt. Du kommer förutom att spela in ljud även få prova på lite analoga och elektroniska instrument. Målet är att vidga deltagarnas förståelse för hur allt som låter kan förvandlas till musik.

Alla kan vara med och lyssna men max 12 aktiva deltagare kan aktivt delta i övningarna. Anmälning på plats.

Trubadur Ehn (SE)
Den ständige Trubaduren och vispoeten Joakim Ehn ser fram emot att koka ihop den mest originella atmosfären för att berättandet och folksjälen ska kunna hänga med i svängarna under festivalen.

Varje spelning är hans första och hans sista, och till och med han vet inte mer än det enkla faktum att; Det kommer bli episkt och glädjerikt men också med en dos av melankoli och svårmod.

"Det omöjliga är fullt genomförbart" - Länge leve visan!

leoblu (AX)
leoblu är solo-projektet av artisten, låtskrivaren och producenten Julia Carlsson. Ursprungligen från Åland, och numera bosatt i Berlin, så beskriver Julia sina influenser som “dammiga gator och djupa hav”. Inspirerad av dark-pop, bombastiskt minimalistiska ljudlandskap och melankoliska sångstämmor, så levererar hon sina djupaste tankar och bortglömda känslor insvept i sammetslen drömpop.

Efter momentum med sin låt “still dancing”, som blev en del av soundtracket till Netflix-serien “The Protector”, så har Julia uppträtt på indie-festivaler och klubbscener runtom i världen; från Mariehamn, till Taipei – från Madrid, till Buenos Aires.

I sommar, så är leoblu aktuell med ny musik – egenproducerade verk som blandar multidimensionella stämmor med en sårbar, nyfunnen frihet.

Maija Kauhanen (FI)
One-Woman Orchestra - A powerfully expressive voice, deep-rooted kantele and inventive percussion: fleet-fingered virtuoso and one-woman band Maija Kauhanen specializes in the rare Saarijärvi kantele from Central Finland and its old and rare playing techniques. Weaving together polyrhythms and organic beats, she creates unique soundscapes and compelling grooves.

Multi-awarded Maija Kauhanen is one of the most internationally successful folk musicians from Finland and has toured over 30 countries around Europe, Asia and America.

On her second solo album Menneet (The Past, Nordic Notes 5/2022), Kauhanen takes a step towards being a singer-songwriter without losing the strong roots in tradition. The music draws influences from folk music, indie pop and film scores and tells stories of personal space and setting one’s boundaries. How much space is enough? How can a personal space be maintained and cherished, without letting it hold us back?

Kauhanen specializes in the rare Saarijärvi kantele from Central Finland. She plays the kantele in various tunings and with different playing styles, using her fingers, tiny wooden sticks as plectrums, a cello bow, an E-bow as well as other preparation materials like Blu Tack. Her percussion set consists of a kick drum, juju bean shaker, cymbals, wind bells, enamel pots and bowls, silver plates, metal muffin tins, trays and assorted kitchen utensils found at flea markets.

Maija Kauhanen’s vocal technique is inspired by imitating instrument sounds, rural music traditions of Finland and Karelia as well as the Swedish kulning vocal tradition

Djup Frid (SE)
"Djup Frid is an ecstatic practice of playing Rock n’ roll in tongues. But it is not quite that. It sucks its sonical inspiration from the sleepy violence of suburbs in Dnipro on one side of its existential pendulum. On the other side it draws its will to live from the Baptist Church of Krivij Rih. But it's not exactly like that. So what is it? Well, it might be described as a feeling of relief when you realize that you forgot about that brain tumor you thought you had and now you will probably live for a while longer. Or a hand that is cold on your belly that is hot. It’s close but not precisely that. Well. Now you know it. And now you need it. And you can have it. Come and see it. From top of the head. And bottom of the heart." /DF

Jelly Crystal (SE)
Filip Johnson är sångaren, låtskrivaren och multi-instrumentalisten bakom soloprojektet Jelly Crystal. Med rötterna i pophistoriens klassiska melodier och den svenska indierockscenen har han skapat ett helt eget uttryck som andas lika mycket dåtid som framtid.

Sedan debuten 2017 har Jelly Crystal släppt en rad hyllade singlar, två EP:n och flera korsbefruktade samarbeten med artister som Shitkid, Adrian Lux, Sibille Attar, Esther och Stella Explorer. Utöver soloprojektet har han även funnits med i bandkonstellationer som HOLY och Vacation Forever, samt medverkade på Kite’s legendariska spelning på Kungliga Operan i slutet av 2020.

2021 släpptes det kritikerrosade debutalbumet ”Freak Show”, där han var fortsatt trogen allt det som tidigare kännetecknat honom som artist - genom experimentell och okonventionell pop. Albumet ledde även till utmärkelsen ”Årets Kompositör” på Manifestgalan med motiveringen; ”Kompositionerna är på ytan elegant tidlösa och klassiska men genomsyras av ett stökigt, fritt och drabbande uttryck. Ett djärvt mångfacetterat och vågat debutalbum med låtar som dröjer sig kvar”.

Under våren 2022 är Jelly Crystal aktuell med EP:n ”ILY”, planerad till juni, som föregås av singlarna ”Happy Ending” ft. Alice Boman och ”I Tryyy” ft. Seinabo Sey.

PROGRAM (Extended version)

THURSDAY 11.8

Introduction and talks - TBA

Workshop: Circular Electronic Music with Havsmörker (AX)
This workshop is for you who are curious about how we can create music by using the sounds available around us and manipulate them with electronic instruments through field recordings and sampling. Through various exercises and techniques you will learn about the building blocks of loop-based music and the basics of sound design. The workshop is aimed at beginners and is suitable for the age of 15 and up. Apart from recording sounds you will have the chance to try out some analog and digital electronic instruments. Our hope is to broaden the participants' understanding of how everything that sounds kan be made into music.

Everyone can witness and listen but a maximum of 12 persons can actively participate in the recording, etc. Sign-up on location.

Trubadur Ehn (SE)
The folk singer and lyricist Joakim Ehn is looking forward to cooking up the most unique atmosphere for the audience to experience the art of storytelling and folk soul at the festival.

Every show is his first and his last and even he doesn’t know more than the simple fact that; it will be epic and joyful with a touch of melancholy.

“The impossible is possible” - Long live the folk song!

leoblu (AX)
leoblu is the solo project of the artist, songwriter and producer, Julia Carlsson. Originally from The Aland Islands, currently living in Berlin, Julia describes her influences as “dusty streets and deep seas”. Inspired by dark-pop, bombastic yet minimalist soundscapes and melancholic vocal harmonies, she delivers her deepest thoughts and forgotten emotions wrapped in a silky smooth dream pop.

Since the momentum gathered with her song ‘still dancing’, which became part of the soundtrack of the Netflix-series ‘The Protector’, Julia has been performing at indie-festivals and club venues around the world; from Mariehamn to Taipei, Madrid and Buenos Aires.

This summer she is releasing new music - single handedly produced pieces that mix multidimensional harmonies with a vulnerable, newfound freedom.

Jelly Crystal (SE)
Filip Johnson is the singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist behind the project Jelly Crystal. With roots in pop history's classic melodies and the Swedish indie rock scene, he has created a wholly unique expression that embodies the past as much as the future.

Since his debut 2017 Jelly Crystal has released many celebrated singles, two EPs and several cross breeding collaborations with artists like ShitKid, Adrian Lux, Sibille Attar, Esther and Stella Explorer. Apart from his solo project he has also been part of bands like Holy and Vacation Forever, as well as participating at Kite’s legendary performance on The Swedish Royal Opera at the end of 2020.

2022 saw the release of the critically acclaimed debut album ‘Freak Show’, true to his earlier experimental and unconventional pop. The LP led to a series of awards as “Composer of the Year” at The Manifestgalan with the motivation; “On the surface the compositions are elegantly timeless but are permeated with a rough, free and affecting expression. A bold, multifaceted and daring debut album with songs that linger”.

Come spring 2022 Jelly Crystal has released the EP “ILY” which was preceded by the singles “Happy Ending” ft. Alice Boman and “I Tryyy” ft. Seinabo Sey.
