About Staffan Mossenmark
Mossenmark is professor in composition and teaches and tutors in the artistic area of performative sound art, site specific performance and sound art in public places. He conducts research in the field of public space as a venue for art and public expression and is a part of USIT - Urban Sound Institute, a research group with members from the fields of architecture, public space, acoustics and composition.
Mossenmark is often seen as a person who goes his own way and combines different ways of staging composed music and sound art. His catalogue includes several operas (such Mrs Björks destiny and adventures, The Changeling and Stjärneborg) as well as many chamber works composed for distinguished musicians.
At the same time many of his projects are centred on public space, sometimes involving unusual settings and combinations of instruments or sounding objects. Examples are OZONE II - concert for 24 ice cream vans, Phony - concert for cellphones, Song of a Siren - concert for boats, V8 - concert for American cars, Iron - concert for bodybuilders, Scooter Ballet - concert for snow scooters, WROOM - concert for 100 Harley-Davidson motorcycles, and Good vibrations - concert for Dynapack machines.
Mossenmark’s compositions and performance, often accompanied by huge media attention, have been presented all over Europe as well as in the USA, Canada, Japan, China, Russia and Australia. He has given numerous lecturers, workshops around Europe at academies of music, art, architect and design and has played an active role in EU-funded projects involving up to as many as 10 countries.
Since 2009 he has been the artistic director of the festival GAS - Göteborg Art Sounds and since 2007 has been one of the founder members and artistic directors of Verona Risuona, a festival in which art, music and performance take place in the streets and public spaces of Verona, Italy.
