Site Specific Sounds
Three composers have written music in dialogue with Oslo's new urban architecture. The pieces of music are each based on constructions in Oslo's new cityscape. The pieces can be streamed below.
Jenny Hval - LUXUS
Jenny Hval has in recent years made a name for herself as an artist, musician and writer both in Norway and abroad. Multidisciplinary and transgressive are words often employed to describe her art, but Hval’s polyphonic artistry is in fact seamlessly interwoven between musical, literary, visual and performative modes of expression.
Rebecka Ahvenniemi - Banalala
Rebecka Ahvenniemi is a Finland born composer and philosopher. She completed her master’s degree in 2013, specializing in language as a physical and phonetic expression in musical contexts. She is currently a PhD student and is working as a producer and managing director of the concert series AVGARDE.
Stine Sørlie - Acrobat Collage
Stine Sørlie is a Norwegian composer whose works include solo, chamber and orchestral pieces, and music for film, theater and dance.
