On the day of the exhibition opening, The New Alchemy takes the stage of The Nordic Watercolour Museum. For this concert, the band has interpreted Carin Ellberg's art and imagery through their own psychedelic sound. Five of Ellberg's works have been the starting point for the completely newly written music, and during this musical performance a cosmic constellation is formed between art, music and space.

"The New Alchemy is all about Swedish artists Per Svensson and Ebbot Lundberg making dark, intricate, swirling rock psychedelia."

The foundation of The New Alchemy is the sound artist Per Svensson and the artist Ebbot Lundberg, former frontman in The Soundtrack of our Lives. Together with the musicians Gunnar Frick (organ), Rasmus Alkestrand (sitar) and Lisen Rylander (saxophone), they create a fusion of psychedelic rock mixed with Indian raga and free jazz. The band's constellation varies over time and occasion and has so far resulted in three albums. In May 2022, the band performed at the Polar Prize Gala and interpreted the winner Iggy Pop's song Nightclubbing .
