Verksamheten i Elektronmusikstudion EMS återupptas för tonsättare baserade i Sverige från och med den 17 augusti 2020. EMS öppnar för internationella residens från och med den 1 september.
I och med att studion öppnar igen har vi infört nya riktlinjer med syfte att hålla nere beläggningen och på så vis bidra till att minska smittspridningen. Riktlinjerna mejlas ut till studions användare separat.
Vi önskar alla EMS’ användare välkomna tillbaka inför hösten 2020!
Elektronmusikstudion EMS has reopened for composers based in Sweden starting August 17 2020.
EMS will reopen for International Residencies on September 1st.
In conjunction with the reopening of the studio we have added some new guidelines to lower the studio usage and thus help reduce contagion. The new guidelines have been sent by mail to the studio users.
We wish all EMS’ users welcome back to the studio!
Mads Kinnerup is a composer and electronic musician writing and producing new instrumental music using self-developed software and hardware tools. With a background in electronic experimental music, he is interested in pushing the boundaries of how electronic music can be performed and produced in new original ways.
At the moment, his work is based around programming new innovative sequencer systems, both in the analog realm and in the computer, capable of performative human interaction. A key word in his current work is 'morphing' and his current aim is to construct sequencer systems that makes the morphing of sounds from one state to another possible. This will also be the center of his artistic work at EMS.
His educational background is a bachelor in Electronic Music and Sound Art from Danish National Academy of Music. Currently, he is a master student at Rhythmic Music Conservatory in Copenhagen.
During his internship at EMS, Mads will continue his work with interactive sequencer systems with a particular interest in exploring the sequencer systems on the Buchla system in relation to his ongoing work with morphing sounds.

His audio work uses guitars, acoustic instruments, vintage keyboards and effects to create warm and emotive melodies, fragmented and submerged among beds of droning ambient textures and environmental sounds.
Wil's work is usually site-specific, based on a certain place, and tends to use environmental sounds and images as starting points in the creative process. The main concept of his work is resonance – the resonance of sound, but also the resonance of a space – its atmosphere and the traces of its history, society and culture, and associated ideas of place, memory and identity.
He also takes inspiration from finding beauty in the everyday and in unexpected or overlooked places, taking the time to pause, freeze and explore a moment, experience or emotion.
Wil has released albums on labels including Hibernate, Time Released Sound, Eilean, Home Normal, Dauw, Dronarivm, Hidden Vibes and Fluid Audio. He has also shown his sound and video works in exhibitions at ICA, Incheon Art Platform, Liverpool Biennial and others, and have performed at venues including Cafe Oto, Tate Liverpool and Iklectik.
