Skálar is a Centre for Sound Art and Experimental Music.
Its main objective is to provide a platform for experiments, collaborations, presentations, studies and inspiration to professional artists and students.
Connected to the centre is an artist-in-residence program that provides accommodation for the artists as well as studio facilities and sound laboratory.
Skálar wishes to work with related institutions and to create a basis for international interchange and network.
The centre and art collective is founded by artists Elvar Már Kjartansson, Helgi Örn Pétursson, and Konrad Korabiewski.
It was given the name ‘Skálar’ in honour of the Icelandic pioneer of electronic music Magnús Blöndal Jóhannsson.
