Aarhus Lydforening (ALF) is a hub for creative ideas. We focus on creating a sustainable environment, both in relation to new technologies within composition, 3D-sound, sound-art, electronic composition, installations, experimental music and interactive art and a general focus on mental health and a healthy work-life in the music industry.  Other activities within ALF include knowledge sharing workshops, talks, concerts and monthly meetups where artists can meet and discuss life as an artist informally.

We aim to give independent artists a possibility to achieve their goals and create all kinds of sound-art. All aesthetic viewpoints are welcome, and ALF is built on the thought that sharing of and openness to different aesthetic views is giving for all members alike.   From 2026 ALF will operate in a shared physical space, where composers and sound-artists can meet, collaborate and work.  The shared space consists of studio facilities, a workshop, and a multichannel system that members can use in their own pieces, as well as all other equipment needed to produce electronic music and engage in cross genre sound art. 

ALF has a partnership with several institutions around Europe, and the aim of ALF is also to create togetherness and build a community of people within composition across borders.
