Open Space: SPOR New Music School

Spor (DK)

Open Spaces are productions that directly engage the audience in the creative process. Local communities new to music work with a curating team to create a musical work that may be presented at a partner’s music festival. Although a quality artistic result is a goal, the priority is to create a meaningful musical experience for audiences. Open Spaces represent a safe zone for testing different techniques that will be re-tested in different cultural contexts.

In this Open Space, SPOR Festival gives sound to the artworks in the Aarhus Art Museum in a free walking concert. Music is composed for each piece and space by participants to SPOR’s New Music School, who will then perform a 25-minute concert with the NJYD Quartet in the gallery. The tones, sounds, and audio create a special museum experience and interpretation of the individual artworks.
