On Klänge - Space, Time and Body (2021) Erika Matsunami
The start point of this artistic research is an artwork Corona-STEMS-GALAXYOMEGA (May 2020) by Lukas Huisman who a pianist and Ph.D. in performing arts/piano in classic-modern music, he started to embodiment "Corona" (1962) by Takemitsu together with a composer Patrick Housen newly. I collaborate with Housen as a visual artist for a sound installation in this artistic project. Thereby the forthcoming Joint artistic research "variations" which relates to this artistic research on Klänge - Space, Time and Body, I as a visual artist, explore the subject of time and space in "Corona" (1962) for pianist(s) by Toru Takemitsu for the exploration of new interpretations. My practical contribution performance in the site-specific installation for variation I is "Corona" without Pianist for 4 ch discrete sound installation in 2020 is an invisible sense such as literary musical expression in "who is left to drift in the loneliness of the remaining scent." Thus theoretical exploration is in terms of ongoing artistic research in the philosophy of sound. The aim of this artistic research is a new multi-layered open score "Variation I, II and III".

SEMAPHOR (2021) Gerriet K. Sharma
“Semaphor” is a spatial sound-composition for two pioneering instruments, which are explored both practically and theoretically by the artists Susanne Fröhlich and Gerriet K. Sharma: Helder Tenor recorder and the Icosahedral loudspeaker (IKO). If one understands both instruments as sound projectors, sound textures in sculpturally entangled states, spatially demarcated sound layers and scenographies can be composed and perceived in a way, scarcely producible in this ensemble constellation until now. The piece attempts to discover the shared perceptual spectrum of both instruments in dialogue and thus to expand the aesthetic possibilities of spatial composition in the present.

The more they spit on me, the faster I flower (2021) Tinna Joné
The more they spit on me, the faster I flower We research whether the new technology is able to deepen the documentary narrative, and if so, how? Can we include more voices, tell other stories, and attract a wider audience?  In northern Botkyrka there are million program areas, in the southern rural areas and it is a municipality with clear contradictions. Can the documentary process challenge the polarization of Botkyrka? The new technology takes you home to people in northern and southern Botkyrka where you get to experience everyday life in the suburb and attend festivities and ceremonies. Bird perspective with the camera on drones open eyes in this final report of a three-year project. Research made available with cardboard glasses and 360° video where you are. The constant renegotiation of roles and positions of power that the use of new technology entails opens up new opportunities, but also new risks. It gets a bit swaying, but in a good way! Ethical issues take place in this project during the idea work, on the set, and in the choice of platform and distribution format. But whose reality is portrayed? How? And by whom? Tinna Joné, Assistant professor in documentary storytelling Ewa Cederstam, Cinematographer Katarina Eismann, Media navigator

Effects of visual instructions in one-on-one violin lessons (2021) Mauro Smorto
Starting from my personal teaching experience, I have been studying the effect of visual instructions on my violin pupils. With a detailed analysis of the interactions between students and teacher and the help of 36 observation sheets, I could finally see the effects of enhancing visuals on student’s musical learning. All conclusions were drawn after taking into account specific studies mentioned in the theoretical framework and with respect to the observations made by three external experts. This research found further evidence of the link between visualization and critical thinking as well.
