Magma is an online platform concentrating on promoting the activities and profiles of Nordic composers, artists and performers. Magma is a part of music website Nordic Playlist.
On a biweekly basis, a featured curator will invite Magma’s readers to take a personal glimpse into his/her mind and artistic practice. Composers and individuals strongly affiliated with the Nordic contemporary music scene will choose and recommend a wide array of content, ranging from interviews and introductions to works, to a ‘curated section’ of items of particular and significant interest.
Magma will provide a platform to present cherished treasures, works, experiences and artistic encounters that have had a profound impact on the featured curators’ artistic lives, with the upcoming chain of curators adhering to the younger generation of exciting Nordic composers.
The first artist to be featured on Magma is Denmark’s Else Marie Pade, whose work is explored through a carefully selected series of texts, documentaries and online streams of her ground-breaking compositions. Composers Anna Thorvaldsdottir from Iceland and Lars Petter Hagen from Norway will be featured on Magma during the upcoming weeks.
