CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS!
In connection with Softday’s project “Song of the Bees”, Harp Art Lab seeks submissions from artists working with sound to create installations or performances connected to the theme of “honey bees”, thereby transforming Harp Art Lab Windmill into a “hive” of sounds.

READ ALL ABOUT IT: PDF
The aim of this workshop is to create a collaborative project about beekeeping challenges in today's society. We hope that this project can be shaped artistically by people from County Halland in Sweden: beekeepers, artists, musicians and singers (and maybe some others).!
In recent years, beekeeping 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.!
The Irish duo Softday created the project Amhrán na mBeach (Song of the Bees), between 2010 and 2013, involving a group of Irish beekeepers, a chamber orchestra, a choir with Benedictine monks, an organist, and a poet who had written a poetic diary about her beekeeping. Together, they performed the resulting work in the monastery Glenstal Abbey, April 2013. The music was based on scientific data from the Irish beekeepers, such as presence of varroa mites, foulbrood, etc.!
We hope that this approach can create a new and deeper understanding of our relationship to nature and we hereby invite you to this workshop.!!

We hope this results in the creation of a novel and unique performance to be delivered during the BZZZ sound art festival, July 4-6 2014, at Harp Art Lab in Harplinge!!
