Swedish version


Below is an English translation of all the general information about us and what we do. All the specific information and news about forthcoming events is only put up on the main Swedish page and not translated. This is just because all the practical details of times, addresses, etc are pretty self explanatory and all the musical descriptions of the artists often use terms which are very similar to the English ones. Plus there are links to the artists' own websites where you can get a better idea of what they do, and these sites are usually in English.


About us

Motvikt organise gigs in Malmö, Sweden, primarily for experimental, electronic and improvised music. The main aim is to give artists within the local music scene the opportunity to play live, as well as to bring about unexpected collaborations between artists who perhaps haven't played live together before.

Another important function of Motvikt is to act as a creative outlet for ourselves. This means that during our nights we often take the opportunity to play live or collaborate with other artists who are performing, as well as sometimes playing our field recordings and records or showcasing some other aspect of our own musical activities.


Would you like to play?

One of our main goals is give artists the opportunity to perform, and especially to provide an outlet for those who often don't get the chance to play live in Malmö. So if you are involved with or interested in the kind of music we are focusing on then you are very welcome to get in touch with us. In addition to live performances we are also very open to suggestions for other kinds of contributions to our nights, for example if you want to play some records or field recordings or present a sound installation.

If you are a touring artist who is interested in playing in Malmö then you are also welcome to get in touch with us. However we can't guarantee that we will be able to help you as we are by no means professional promoters - all our gigs are organised on a low- or no- budget basis!
