Anton Lindström
Composer
Anton Lindström (b.1999) is a Swedish composer and musician from Göteborg, and is currently studying Composition at Högskolan för Scen och Musik in Göteborg. Aside from composition, Anton also performs primarily improvised, or pseudo-improvised electronic music on modular synthesizers as well as producing electronic music. Anton’s primary musical and aesthetic interests consist of freedom, improvisation, gestural expression, timbre and exploration of temporality. Music is an exploration and a showcase of energy and momentum. Even while faint or still, music is in constant motion and turbulence. Time cannot be frozen; every moment will pass in as short of an instant as in which it arrives. No moment is more true than any other, and none are forever. Thus no performance of music will, can - or should - be the same, as this defies an innate principle of our existence. One may choose to defy this property, composing a “hyper-precise” music as to echo a former state; or one could choose to embrace it by welcoming other moment-bound aspects into the musical framework – allowing each performance to be macroscopically unique. Performance is an innately subjective and deeply personal act and I strongly believe this should be encouraged on a scale which noticeably affects the works surface quality. My music attempts to place itself simultaneously within - and outside - of both these aforementioned realms.
