PRESS RELEASE FROM TENTAKEL PUBLISHER 13 / 9-2021
My city block - if the world disappeared
"Imagine my city block. Imagine if a day would come when the entire world outside of our block disappeared. " The quote is taken from the introductory text in My city block, which is the second digital production that is now coming out at the newly started Tentakel Förlag, Sound art publisher. It is in the form of a multimedia work and with sound art, text, instruments and film we dive into a world of issues around ourselves when the world around us one day suddenly disappears. The work is a collaboration between Ylva Bentancor, sound art / text and visualization, Gustavo Bentancor, sound art / instrument construction and the violinists Cecilia and Martin Gelland in Duo Gelland. Magnus Hjalmarson Neideman has made the cover photo and the project's central image. My city block can also be seen as a debate post in most debates today; pandemics, climate change and the consequences we see of it, our digital lives and an increasingly harsh climate in society, racism, prejudice and the world economy.
Ylva Bentancor is a sound artist and founder of Tentakel Musik, which has now been developed to also include Tentakel Sound art publisher.
Her works, which increasingly have visual elements, have been performed all over the world, at concerts, radio, festivals, galleries and figured internationally consistently. During the autumn, she is coming up with a presentation on the French web radio channel WebSYNradio and is working on a sound and crochet project, Forever Provisional.

Gustavo Bentancor is a former bandoneonist and leader of the tango quintet Cosmopolitango.
He started a bandoneon workshop in Sweden, travelling through Paris, Berlin and now in Spain. In the workshop, he began experimenting with the construction of self designed instrumens, with a focus on lifting almost inaudible sounds in the materials he had in his workshop. Today, sound art is taking up more and more of his artistic work and he has participated with his sounds in several productions. He is now working on a project under the working name "Perhaps" and which will be published in 2022.
Duo Gelland is an eminent European ensemble turned an 18th century concept into the driving force of contemporary exploration. Their passionate, profound and playful interpretations earned them the Annual German Record Critics' Award 2008, Swedish Nutida Sound 2011, Fanfare Yearbook 2001. They revive forgotten gems with historically inspired insight, and in close collaboration with composers they bring new scores to life - so far nearly 200.
