Equal Temperament (9 – Kungssten > Angered Centrum)
Equal Temperament is an experimental music project by Kasra Seyed Alikhani that takes its name from the standard tuning system of Western music which dominates most music software. The project collages impressions, recordings, and thoughts evoked by tram number 9 and its destinations in the form of a musical or an album. The route illustrates the large geographical distances that contribute to the segregation of Göteborg. With the thematic lens of journey/limbo, ideals of “Swedishness” are explored in relationship to the tram’s route. The project utilises music software recently developed by musician and researcher Khyam Allami that challenges the western bias in music software.
