Resonating Rooms is a contemporary culture institution that creates space for new ways of experiencing, using and participating in creative and improvising music. We develop and realize projects, activities and works where the people are involved in all parts of the artistic and creative process – often we start at the school, the place of residence or in the local association. Other times we develop projects with municipalities, large institutions, festitvals or companies that have the courage to try something new. We strive to create empowerment. In this way, we create space for several different people with different prerequisites to have the opportunity to feel and discover new sides of the creative music and of themselves. We call it contemporary and people-pertinent music.
Most cultural institutions, theaters and ensembles have a preferred space where they present their work – we do not. We try to transform any room into a resonant room. We use various musical, artistic, didactic and rhetorical techniques that contribute to the music resonating within the individual, between people and in the room. Resonance is the enormous energy that occurs when two objects or souls with the same natural frequency meet. It is resonance when we transform a 9 meter long wall into a giant, vibrating speaker at an art museum, when we let the audio stories of young refugees ring out from a shop window and mingle with passers-by on the pedestrian street, or when the mentally vulnerable experience the connectedness and let themselves be moved in a joint, musical improvisation. Regardless of whether we work with resonance on a physical or emotional level, we use music, art and improvisation as tools to create spaces that resonate.
