Delighted to host an event celebrating 90 years of legendary Stockholm-based arts institution, Fylkingen!
Fylkingen - New Music and Intermedia Art is an artist-run, non-profit association for experimental music and art. The association was founded in 1933 and currently consists of approximately 300 Swedish and international artists who develop and present new work in Fylkingen's own venue located in Stockholm, Sweden. The association is run by an active board and programming group. In addition Fylkingen Records produce and distribute recorded media. In 2023, Fylkingen celebrates its 90th anniversary, making it one of the world's oldest forums of its kind.
This event was made possible thanks to support from The Swedish Arts Grants Committee
Amina Hocine (b.1991) is Swedish composer, sound artist, and instrument creator, currently pursuing her masters in electro acoustic composition at the Royal college of music in Stockholm. She writes acousmatic and notated music for musicians, focusing on longform pieces, exploring minimal harmonic movements and static rhythmic gestures. Her recent work has been centered around a self-made organ embodied from HVAC components, which produces mesmerizing drones with profound psychoacoustic effects. Drawing inspiration from spiritual sciences, she weaves detailed timbres that encourage deep listening in her compositions.
Lise-Lotte Norelius (1961) has 40 years experience as a musician. Established herself early as a percussionist, but has since 2000 mainly been focusing on live electronics. She studied electroacoustic composition at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm 1998-2002 and has since then composed music for speakers, musicians with live electronics, poetry, theater, installations and dance performances. The preference for small, pathetic, comic and ugly sounds, rhythmic structures and long lines often characterize her music, which can be both beautiful, raw and brutal. Recent years she has been using controllable motors, home made noisy devices, synth jewelry, vacuum cleaners and floppy drives, for further processing with her
Max/MSP software and various effect boxes.
euroDYKE or Valerie is a sound composer-er and medicine developer, a child of Pentecost, living in Sweden but from “the continent”. While studying industrial medicine in Åmål, she gained quark-stardom for her sound-sit-stand-ins in the aptly named “Alvedome” where she among others met composer Hekate Andersson, who encouraged her to pursue sound composition more seriously. Since then, euroDYKE has performed at Utkonst in Malmö, has signed to the Charleville-Mézières-based record co-op Laine d’Ver! and released her uneponymous double to critical acclaim, being TikTok-praised by Colin Farrell and lauded by the Italian electroacoustic underground, among others. euroDYKE is currently the chairwoman of Fylkingen and explores extrauniversal sonics in an attempt to understand how it is to be a more or less sentient cloud.
John Chantler is a musician and organiser living in Stockholm, Sweden. He mostly works with synthesizers and electronics to create unpredictable, highly dynamic music where passages of spare, alien beauty bridge distorted washes of masses harmonics.

Chantler has performed in the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, North America and across Europe including appearances at Akousma, Montreal; Madeira Dig; +90db Festival, Rome; Issue Project Room, NYC; and London’s Southbank Centre.
His work has been commissioned by Borealis Festival for Experimental Music in Bergen, Norway; Organ for the Senses, San Diego, USA; ElbPhilharmonie, Hamburg, Germany and Tectonics, Glasgow, UK. Chantler has also been artist-in-residence at the ZKM centre for media arts in Karlsruhe, Germany and NOTAM in Oslo, Norway.
