NEW SOUNDS REACH COPENHAGEN
On September 6 – 9, architects and designers will join forces with musicians and sound artists. Together they will transform the old factory grounds at Prags Boulevard 43 on Amager into a festival site sizzling with experimental sound, when LAK – festival for Nordic sound art – takes place for the first time.
LAK gives you 4 days fully packed with sound in different shades and varieties, and shows more than 30 alternative concerts and sound performances, 10 sound installations as well as a seminar and research presentations about sound art and auditory culture. You will discover the sounds as you make your way around the old factory grounds with its various rooms, depots, abandoned offices, industrial containers, basements and towers.
LAK’s vision is to launch new, experimental Nordic sound art in unique settings. So join us at LAK and experience a rainforest made out of trash and sound, an acoustic greenhouse, a post-industrial loud speaker container, big vinyl installations, fine and fragile organ mechanisms in cardboard and paper, a sound-steam-engine and much more.
Experience it all at LAK festival, September 6 - 9 2012.

SOUNDS AT THE FACTORY
LAK grabs sound art from its institutional settings and places it in a rough and urban setting. The festival takes place at Prags Boulevard 43, Amager in a former Sadolin lacquer factory, which presently is a user driven culture site for artists, entrepreneurs, and all kinds of folks – and it’s one of the most exciting and creative centers for innovative urban projects in Copenhagen.
Usually the area houses creative collaborations, music studies, a record company, a gallery, a photo studio, a textile printing house, a new circus ensemble, a trailer sauna, garages and workshops with wood, ceramics and bicycles, and the award winning urban gardening project Prags Have i.a. All of Prags Boulevard 43 will be involved when LAK presents both indoor and outdoor sound installations and concerts in a multitude of small and large, old and new, crooked and odd spaces in the factory area.
