21/05/13 13.00 – 14:30 p.m. BABY DAY TRIPPING, A Liquid Light Show for children, aged 0 – 2 years
In conjunction with the exhibition "In memery," the first major solo exhibition of the artist Sture Johannesson (SE), Index presents Baby Day Tripping, a Liquid Light Show with projections and music especially designed for children aged 0-2 years.
Liquid Light shows moving light projections created by liquid chemical fluids that react with each other live in front of a live audience were commonly used in the 60's and 70's as part of art and music performances and the psychedelic rock concerts. Pink Floyd, Jefferson Airplane, Grateful Dead, Jimi Hendrix, Velvet Underground often worked with light show artists and artist collectives such as Mike Leonard, Brotherhood of Light, Light Sound Dimension and Marc Boyle, which sought to simulate or stimulate the effect of LSD by means of technology and spellbinding environments.
As part of the workshop for children Index will show Liquid Loops (1969), by the legendary light show artist Joshua White (U.S.). The material is a digitized copy of the original recording and a unique document of the classic phenomenon. Liquid Loops has been shown at the Whitney Museum in New York, the Hirshhorn Museum, Washington, DC, the Tate Modern in London and the Centre Pompidou in Paris. Liquid Loops works both as a video portrait of Joshua Light Shows ephemeral art form and as an inspiration to musicians, VJs and set designers both then and now.

To sign up please contact Louise Dyhlén on email@example.com and Joanna Nowotny firstname.lastname@example.org or call 08 5021 98 38. 15/11/12 7.30 – 10:00 p.m. Concert by The Great Learning Orchestra Fylkingen Söder Mälarstrand 27 118 25 Stockholm The Great Learning Orchestra will interpret parts of Cornelius Cardew’s legendary composition Treatise (1963-1967), a radical piece on free improvisation for live actions of all kinds, and one of the most important musical pieces of the 20th century in the field of graphic notation. GLO takes its name from another of Cardew’s most important scores – The Great Learning (1971) – a work in seven parts or "Paragraphs", based on Ezra Pound’s translations of Confucius classic text. During the concert, the graphic score will be projected and the orchestra will jointly take part in forming the material basis for the sounds.
12/11/2012, 6 - 9 p.m.
Workshop by The Great Learning Orchestra (musicians collective from all walks of musical life, Stockholm)
Söder Mälarstrand 27
118 25 Stockholm
GLO will lead a workshop in which participants will be able to explore Cornelius Cardew’s project The Scratch Orchestra (1969-72) that sought to invite both musicians and non-musicians to create new parameters in a musical context. There will be a brief introduction to Cardew’s projects, accompanied by a few exercises and pieces written for this purpose, i.e. parts of his important work The Great Learning (1971). Participants are encouraged to bring their own instruments; however, it will be possible to use voices and other ways to generate sound. After a break, the workshop will focus on the graphic score Treatise (1963-67) and the idea of graphic composition. Participants will try to play a part of the piece, and talk about different interpretations which could lead to homework assignments in view of taking part in The Great Learning Orchestra’s concert on 15th November at Fylkingen as part of Index’s weekly series The audience is the mother of self-invention. Participants don’t need to be able to play any instruments. It is possible to use other forms of action such as dancing, acting or any other artistic expression.
To sign up please contact Joanna Nowotny on email@example.com or 08 5021 98 38

For 20 participants of all ages
13/10/12, 12 – 13:30 p.m.
Shack-ed(it)-ing Workshop led by Editor WITNAS. This workshop takes the idea of ‘shack’ as a conceptual and methodological starting point in order to consider the editorial process as collective effort. Using what is at hand, either gathered on-site or brought in advance, participants will build a makeshift structure with texts, images and materials in order to examine more closely the editorial concept of ‘picking and choosing.’ The ensuing reading, discussion, suggestions, corrections and selections will culminate in the forthcoming issue of their critical journal, WITNAS #8. It will be published simultaneously to the convention.
For 10 participants of all ages
05/10/2012, 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.
Anna Koch (artist, choreographer and director of WELD, Stockholm)
08/10/2012, 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.
Anna Kinbom (artist, Stockholm)
These two workshops map out diverse approaches that score action and thought from a wide spectrum of perspectives (musical, instruction-based, physical, durational, etc.). By selecting artworks from a collection of historical as well as recent performance art, participants will learn what extensive possibilities these approaches can offer, from direct experience to spectatorial agency, from writing up their own scores to instruct others to enact them.
For teenagers 16-19
