reConvert comes to Malmö to give their celebrated preformance "extension" by Fabrizio Di Salvo
reConvert was born as a natural extension of the percussion repertoire of the last seventy years, to become a seal of identity that rejects generic definitions and bets on a continuous work between different artists in which the questioning of the dogmas of the academy is in the foreground.
With difficulties in defining the facet of the percussionist of our time, due to the evolution that the “instrument” has undergone in itself, reConvert raises an aesthetic question without complexes, and that does not feed on the natural limits and definitions of terms. Halfway between percussion and electronics, the new projects that reConvert faces could well be named with different adjectives, without any of them being able to define them completely and fully.
For this, reConvert bases its bet on a continuous and deep work with diverse creators of the panorama of our time such as Kaj Duncan David, Alexander Schubert, Simon Steen-Andersen, Michael Maierhof, Jorge Sánchez-Chiong, Fernando Manassero or Luciano Azzigotti.
reConvert carries out activities in Europe, America and Asia, constantly evolving and questioning the uses and bets of resources, techniques and means that it carries out continuously. The instruments, objects, elements, interfaces... are in themselves tools to reach the artistic aims that reConvert proposes, and they must be at the service of creation.
Its continued work includes, in addition to concerts, workshops in various institutions such as the Royal College of London, Universidad Tres de Febrero of Buenos Aires, Columbia University (New York), among others.

“No Roof” is a series of concerts strictly connected to our festival’s name, SOUND SPACES. Exploring the common space, the space which is outside the concert hall, is the aim of the “No Roof” series which this year arrives at its fourth instalment. This time we will be wandering in the public space between the church of S:t Johannes and the three sculptures near Magistratsparken with two pieces written respectively by Karlheinz Stockhausen (1928-2007) and James Tenney (1934-2006), both with quite open rules and instrumentation more than a detailed score. The piece by Stockhausen will be chosen among his collection entitled “Für kommende Zeiten”, while the piece by Tenney is a one-note piece called Swell Piece #2.
