News and events


The TMKM website has for long needed a place for posting news and events, and from May 2024 this is the new space for this. For older events, these will gradually be added to the website. Madsen is also currently working on a website dedicated to their doctoral research to soon be launched (watch this space for its release later in 2024).


Lithic Listening Walk


Tina Mariane Krogh Madsen facilitates a geologically informed listening session at Kitchen Lab Tarvo event on Sunday May 26th 2024.





































Tina Mariane Krogh Madsen's listening sessions depart in Madsen's extensive work with listening as a part of their artistic practice and as a certified facilitator of Deep Listening from The Center for Deep Listening, founded by composer Pauline Oliveros.


The listening walk on Tarvo will thus activate tools from this way of working with both physical and aural listening, here extended through Madsen's artistic research in environmental affective relations, proposing an approach to multisensory listening with a specific geological departure-point which activates and considers lithic infrastructures around us.


The session takes place from 14.00-15.30 and is open for everyone regardless of age but will be conducted in English. Note the walk starts from Kitchen Lab Tarvo [See info below].
