A gratis three-night program copresented by Issue Project Room and the Consulate General of Sweden, Swedish Energies showcases the country's thriving experimental music scene. Highlights of this year's fourth annual installment—celebrating the 50th anniversary of Stockholm's Elektronmusikstudion—include a seven-hour tape piece by the late composer Ákos Rózmann on Dec 4 at Experimental Intermedia. The fest moves to Issue for the Dec 5 and 6 shows featuring Carl Michael von Hausswolff, Stephen O'Malley and many others. See issueprojectroom.org
