By on November 30, 2016

Tobias Johansson and Calle Stenman at the Royal College of Music (KMH) are two of the seventies students who interpreters the Nobel Prize in fashion, music, crafts and photography.

KMH collaborates this year with Beckmans College of Design, Photo School STHLM and Friends of Handicraft in Nobel Museum’s exhibition “Nobel Creations – The Nobel Prize in 2016“, that is shown at Tom Tits Experiment in Södertälje from 9 December.

The pianist Tobias Johansson’s role in the project was to interpret the Chemistry Prize. In his music, all three chemistry prize winners represented.

I got hooked on the concepts of “kantenan” and “rotaxan” that is developed by the award winners Jean-Pierre Sauvage and Sir J. Fraser Stoddart, says Tobias.

I have previously worked a part with writing melodies that work across several different types of chords and keys, and there I could draw parallels to these types of bonds in chemistry.

In the intro to the song “Originis the third chemistry prize winner, Ben Ferringa, self-represented with his story of how it all began.

It’s still a new field, where we eagerly await on what amazing discoveries the future might give us. That sense of anticipation do I want to convey! says Tobias.

Calle Stenman is one of those students who have made an artistic interpretation of the Peace Prize.

– I have assumed the feeling of hope, says Calle, who is himself a trumpeter.

I wanted to capture the fact that this year’s prize is an encouragement to continue the peace process in a country (Colombia) who currently do not have peace, and together with my fellow musicians worked a lot with contrasts in the music.

Nobel Museum’s exhibition success “Nobel Creations – The Nobel Prize in 2016” moves this year to Tom Tits Experiment in Södertälje. The partnership has now been expanded with two new institutions: In addition students from Beckmans College of Design and KMH also participates Photo School STHLM and Friends of Handicraft School with free interpretations of this year’s Nobel Prize.

The exhibition is shown December 9, 2016 to February 12, 2017.
