About BZZZ! International Sound Art Festival, Sveriges Television

About BZZZ!
In recent years, bee colonies have collapsed in several parts of the world. Nobody knows for sure why, but a variety of different and sometimes contested theories have been presented and debated.
To put focus on this issue HARP ART LAB invited artists and beekeepers to create installations and performances connected to the theme of honey bees, thereby transforming Harplinge windmill into a "hive" of sounds. The response have been overwhelming with participators from Sweden, Poland, Ireland, UK, Norway, Lithuania, USA, Finland and Turkey. The ambition to create processes in the community between local residents and artists from abroad, have been achieved.

Harp Art Lab is a laboratory for sound art situated in Harplinge Windmill on the Swedish west coast. The Lab is a unique platform for developing, innovative, interdisciplinary ideas and we work with artists and communities of interest to create performances and installations.

Our main methodology is a socially engaged and discursive sound art practice. The motivations behind our work are predominantly environmental, political, and social in as much as we are attempting to re-mediate contested territories in a scientific and creative way to the public.

Founders: Julijana Nemeti & Mikael Ericsson.
