Les Inspirations Visibles invite Tarek Atoui to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Elektronmusikstudion

To celebrate the 60th anniversary of Elektronmusikstudion (EMS), an international platform for sound art and electronic music in Stockholm, the Lebanese electro-acoustic musician and composer Tarek Atoui brings together seven international artists for a special concert in the Église du Saint-Esprit.

EMS was set up in 1964 with the utopian and visionary idea of helping to change the world by creating new music. Stockholm quickly became one of the most important centres for new music in Europe, establishing close links with composers and studios in France. For 60 years, EMS has been a crossroads of musical experimentation with branches all over the world.

As a tribute to the studio with which he has often worked, Tarek Atoui brings together seven artists around his concept of “experimental lute-making”, an innovative way of making and using musical instruments. Artists working in a range of genres and practices thus form an ensemble performing acoustic and electronic improvisations in a grandiose venue: the Église du Saint-Esprit.
