Between Music create and produce innovative performance concerts in a hybrid of music, live performance, visual arts and new technology. The group masters a huge range of aesthetics, skills and genres, but finds the most potential in the fluctuating spaces between them.
Driven by an endless curiosity and desire to push the boundaries of the human experience – artistically, technically, scientifically - their work explores the driving forces, mechanisms and mysteries of human nature, through a distinctive sound and rich imagery, often with surreal undertones.
Between Music’s creative work involves an international multidisciplinary network of musicians, physicist, engineers, instrument makers, neuroscientists and others, who inspire and ensure the high quality and integrity that characterizes Between Music’s artistic work.
WHO ARE WE

As innovative director, artistic co-creator and technical developer, Robert Karlsson has an infectious sense of play, invention and discovery.
Laila Skovmand: Artistic Director, composer and performer
The backbone of Laila Skovmand’s artistic work is a boundless curiosity and open-mindedness giving impetus for vocal and compositional inventions.
As a performance artist, singer and composer Laila Skovmand deliberately places herself in the gap between genres and media. From here she investigates the liminal states of human experience in order to question and challenge assumptions and narrowed perspectives.
Her artistic process derives from an intuitive method, combined with the skills of a craftsman and an almost scientific search for new sound and expressive possibilities.
