Music and Space: A case of live immersive music performance with the Norwegian post-rock band Spurv

Document Thumbnail

Normative practices for live popular music performance are seldom challenged, in particular those norms related to the staging of artists and the relationship of the audience to the stage. During a run of three concerts held at the University of Agder in collaboration with two music festivals in September 2019, such norms were reconsidered in a series of experimental immersive performances with the Norwegian post-rock band Spurv and electronic music artists Zachary Bresler and Kristian Isachsen. In this brief, the background, organization, and setup for these concerts is described, followed by reflections on the performances with the purpose that others might take interest in this experiment and learn from the successes and shortcomings of the project.
