I am a composer. I experiment with sound. I write for acoustic ensembles, live-electronics, fixed media and hybrid setups, and care little about labels or genres. I find them quite restricting.
A key interest is electronics, especially reactivity, interactivity and mediation in the various ways we relate to / engage with it.
Errors are central in my compositions, both in terms of performativity (micro-tonal/-timbral/-rhythmical deviations) and technology (faulty, lo-fi artifacts and processing)
I am also a big fan of DIY and ownership, and a little tired of hearing the same tools being used in a lot of music. I am currently programming my own applications (MaxMSP and C++) and building hardware with Bela.
I study composition at the Norwegian Academy of Music, have a BA in Musicology from the University of Oslo, and am taking my MA in Musicology part-time. I am a research assistant at TIME (RITMO, UiO), and am credited as a co-author in two recently published research articles on micro-rhythm perception (Danielsen et al. 2019; London et al. 2019).
In addition to composition, I record, produce and mix for others. I sporadically work as a graphic designer. And I’m a musician in various projects, among else with Sigurd Ytre-Arne in our electronica duo Wauwatosa.
