About the event

"Swans need no introduction to us, the faint of heart, the deep thinkers, the dwellers of the dark, and finally they come to US at Plan B - Malmö! Dont miss the opportunity to see them in a setting straight out of a Jim Jarmuch movie - a combination you don't want to miss!" After an exceptional run in 2023, SWANS will continue their tour in February and March 2024, this time together with special guest Maria W Horn (Xkatedral). The album “The Beggar” received enthusiastic reviews and you are warmly invited to witness these amazing artists again in the European continent: 07.02 GRONINGEN NL VERA 08.02 FRANKFURT DE ZOOM 10.02 LEUVEN BE ARTEFACT SOUNDS FESTIVAL #1 11.02 LEUVEN BE ARTEFACT SOUNDS FESTIVAL #2 13.02 LILLE FR L’AERONEF 14.02 LA ROCHELLE FR LA SIRENE 16.02 BIARRITZ FR L’ATABAL 18.02 MADRID ES TEATRO BARCELÓ 19.02 A CORUNA ES COLÓN THEATRE 20.02 BRAGA PT THEATRE CIRCO 22.02 BARCELONA ES SALA RAZZMATAZZ 2 24.02 GENEVA CH ANTIGEL FESTIVAL 26.02 TRENTO IT AUDITORIUM SANTA CHIARA 27.02 GRAZ AT DOM IM BERG 29.02 WROCLAW PL ZAKLETE REWIRY 01.03 GDAŃSK PL STARY MANEZ 03.03 MALMÖ SE PLAN B 04.03 GÖTEBORG SE TRÅDGÅR’N 05.03 AALBORG DK VOR FRELSER CHURCH 08.03 MAASTRICHT NL MUZIEKGIETEIJ 09.03 KÖLN DE DIE KANTINE 11.03 DRESDEN DE BEATPOL 12.03 BERLIN DE BETONHALLE

Maria W Horn (1989) is a composer whose work explores the inherent spectral properties of sound. Her compositions employ a varied instrumentation ranging from analog synthesizers to choir, string instruments, pipe organ and various chamber music formats. Synthetic sound is often paired with acoustic instruments in order to extend the instruments timbral capacities with precise control of timbre, tuning and texture.

Maria combines spectralist techniques and site specific source material in order to explore the inherent memories of a building, object or geographical area. In her recent compositions she uses acoustic artifacts from physical spaces to create musical frameworks for her compositions. Using these acoustic imprints as a starting point Maria weaves intricate harmonic patterns that slowly transform from intimate fragility to searing high-density aural monoliths.

Her debut album Kontrapoetik (2018) is a historical investigation, and a kind of counter-exorcism tackling the deceivingly serene, yet turmoiled past of her home region Ångermanland in the North of Sweden. Dies Irae (2021) derives from the resonant frequencies of an empty machine hall from the mining region of Bergslagen and Vita Duvans Lament (2020) is a sonic excavation of what used to be the only panoptic cell prison built in Sweden.

In addition to her artistic practice she is also the co-founder of Swedish record label XKatedral.
