Anders Hultqvist

Anders Hultqvist is a composer, sound artist and Professor of Composition at the Academy of Music and Drama, University of Gothenburg. Besides writing for different orchestral, chamber music, electro-acoustic and sound art settings, he has since 2005 been involved in different artistic research projects concerning musical interpretation and sound in city spaces. The research projects “Transmission, Urban experiments in sound art and sonic space” and “Into noise” were undertaken by the research group USIT—The Urban Sound Institute.

He is currently involved in the artistic research project “At the conceptual limits of composition: A shrinking emptiness – meaning, chaos and entropy”, which explores certain topics concerning the creation of meaning in musical and literary composition. Examples of publications relating to earlier research projects are Sound and Other Spaces (with C. Dyrssen, S. Mossenmark and P. Sjösten: Bo Ejeby Förlag, 2014) and Musikens frihet och begränsning. 16 variationer på ett tema (ed. Magnus Haglund, Daidalos, 2012). Some of Hultqvist’s more recent chamber music works include Entropic Pleasures (2015) and E.P. delineation II (2016), composed for Ensemble Mimitabu, and Disembodied (2012), written for KammarensembleN.
