Live session: El Perro del Mar

Live-streamed concert


In empty rooms with only the art keeping her company, El Perro del Mar has created music inspired by Moderna Museet’s collection. There, in her encounter with one hundred and twenty years of modern art, a piece of music has emerged. Stream the result titled ”FREE LAND”, that was broadcasted live from the museum on 26 May 2020.

Inspiration from the art and music have been united

On Mondays, when Modern Museet is usually closed to visitors, Sarah Assbring – who in a music context is known by her alias El Perro del Mar – was to come to Skeppsholmen to meet the art alone. She has taken a seat in the collection to let the ideas come to her on-site and take her to the place where inspiration from the art and her music have been united. It resulted in the LP ”FREE LAND”.
