Artist Biographies:

"Andreas Hiroui Larsson is a Swedish aesthetician, artist, artistic researcher, and musician.

He is a researcher at Stockholm University of the Arts, as part of the artistic research project Lethe (2020-23), which explores forgetfulness as an artistic method. The project is funded by the Swedish Research Council.

Larsson conducts an interdisciplinary artistic practice, in which his method of contextualising aspects of non-idiomatic improvisation, the non-productive attitude, and pluralist aesthetics, enables the concepts and materials to play the roles and fulfil the purposes of one another. Thus in terms of ontology, his works are - be it contemporary music, experimental literature, or digital graphic music scores - as much works of music and philosophy as they are works of visual art.

His works are published by Firework Edition and Firework Edition Records (SWE), Peter Lang (DE/US), Nutida Musik (SWE), Relative Pitch Records (US), Lethe (SWE/NO), Found You Recordings (SWE), Olof Bright (SWE/AT), Thanatosis Produktion (SWE), Pink Pamphlet (US/SWE), Ermatell (RU), and FMR (GB). His works are held in the collections of The Nobel Library of the Swedish Academy (SE), Princeton University Library (US), University Library Dresden (DE), Stockholm Public Library (SE), and Sachsska Children's Hospital in Stockholm (SE).

"I have for many years been interested in developing an interdisciplinary artistic practice with which I can combine the materials that I produce in my art, music, and philosophy practices and let them enter each other's fields, play each other's roles, and fulfil the purposes of one another. Seduced by (a) last year marks an early step in the development of such an interdisciplinary method and practice.

Seduced by (a) last year is perhaps more of an artistic method than a conventional musical composition. The method that I use is to compile materials that tell the collective history of the members of my ensemble in digital archives on USB flash drives to be improvised with on laptops via a beamer, speakers, and to be read aloud into microphones. Since Johanna Arve is a visual artist, most of the materials in her archives are of photographic and textual kind and represent works that we have made together over the past ten years. Johan Jutterström is a musician that I have known and worked with since almost twenty years, thereby the materials in his archives span from recordings and texts to parts where he and I improvise together live on our respective instruments.

One can think of the improvising with both the materials in the digital archives and the live improvisation by Jutterström and me as voices in the music. These voices are structured by the main text that I read aloud and which runs throughout the piece and in part determines the duration. Arve and Jutterström follow the main text in the score, in which dynamics and instructions as to when to improvise and with what archives are written out."-Andreas Hiroui Larsson, Stockholm 2022
