We´re now very happy to announce a new artist Ulf Klarström for the coming digital residence week in Ukmergè, Lithuania.
Ulf is a musician and a composer. He has studied classical guitar in Sweden and traditional cuban music in Havanna, Cuba. He studied Western Art Music at The Gotland School of Music Composition and at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm.
He is interested in the combination of technology and art, always trying to find new ways to create.
As a composer he is now working with a theater group in Järvsö, Sweden. During the pandemic, they worked with a site specific audio walk instead of the traditional theater performance. The audio walk experimented with GPS triggered tracks and binaural sound design, creating an immersive experience of exploring a specific site’s history.
During the last couple of years, he and artist Amanda Emricson have been working with the collaborative project “What You Sense”. They are creating interactive objects that respond to physical interaction by emitting light and sound. Initially the main focus group was people with different physical and cognitive disabilities. A big emphasis was put on intuitive design and means of interaction.
The goal of the project is to encourage the act of exploring through our senses.
At the moment they are working together with a group of dancers and musicians to create a performance where the audience will be participating on the scene and is given the possibility to control the sounds and lightning in the room by physically interacting with the scenography/objects.

Listen to the audio walk “En vandring till Sagaliden” - Use headphones for best experience (In Swedish)

Due to the pandemic, the artwork Houses on stone hasn´t had an easy process. But now we´re glad for this first step, that there is a stone in place. It was dug on one of the municipality's rocky plots. The artist Vaidas Ramoška was given a few stones to choose from and he chose this one. We look forward to the continuation!
