Presenter / Gothenburg, Sweden

Staffan Mossenmark, Staffan Svensson, artistic director and chief financial officer

Göteborg Art Sounds, or the GAS-Festival, was founded in 1999. Today it is Sweden’s largest festival for sound art, modern composition, improvisation and electronica. Live performances are intertwined with sound installations, and pre-recorded sounds and compositions are mixed with live improvisations and sheet music. In addition to the musical elements, public talks, workshops and seminars have always been an integral part of the festival. The festival has an international profile and the main focus is to present exciting contemporary artists of high quality. During the coming years we will continue collaborating with other festivals, culture and educational organizations and promotional networks, both national and international.
