A royal visit from their majesties Kings Leif Elggren & Carl Michael von Hausswolff.
Mike Bullock presents The Inauguration of the Philadelphia Embassy of the Kingdoms of Elgaland-Vargaland (KREV) – a weekend of performance, music, video, and art.
Swedish artists Leif Elggren (King Leif I) and Carl Michael von Hausswolff (King Michael I) founded KREV in 1992. They describe it as “the largest and most populous realm on earth, incorporating all boundaries between other nations as well as the digital territory and other states of existence.”
The Embassy Inauguration will feature a passport-making ceremony, where audience members can become citizens of KREV; renditions of the KREV national anthem; annexation of the crack in the Liberty Bell. The evening will end with a concert of three electronic music performances.

The Icebox Project Space is proud to announce its Sound Residency Series
The Icebox is hosting sound-based artists within the space for periods between a few hours and up to 6 weeks, with a focus on experimentation and exploration of the unique acoustic properties of the Icebox (formerly an enormous walk-in freezer, which accounts for some of its unusual characteristics). At the end of each residency, the Icebox will release a track online and at the end of 2016, we intend to compile the tracks onto an LP, as a sonic document.
