Landscape of Science and Music

The ARNA-project Landscape of Science and Music offer students within Music and Landscape Architecture to explore the intercept between art and science to be expressed through cross border collaborations.


The natural science background to the project is the pollen analysis from Lake Vombsjön and the Brunnshög area that the Palaeoecologist Anna Broström is specialist in. From the analysis Anna can follow the changes in the landscape during more than 10.000 years, an intriguing science that now inspires Musician and Composer Mats Edén to create contemporary music.

Through a workshop, for up to 12 participants, get the opportunity to learn more about both Anna’s field of expertise and how it inspires Mats to artistic expressions. The aim for the workshop is to initiate new collaborations between landscape architecture and music and to give tools how to create artistic presentations in the intercept between art and science. The results will be presented to the public as “Work in Progress Presentations” at Science Village Scandinavia’s visitor center during Lund’s Kulturnatt 19th of September and through a short video.
