Composer
I'm a composer and performer based in Oslo. I came to Norway to get rich and chew bubble gum, but I used up all my Erasmus money and now can't afford bubble gum any longer, either. I play a few instruments and sometimes sing, when I'm not composing super-serious contemporary art music (?). I am interested in collaborating with other people and trying to turn music into a social interaction that comments on who we are in the world, trying to bridge the gap between making art and being a human. I studied a bit in Germany and Norway and sometimes watch youtube videos about dead composers, or "try not to laugh" animal videos. My favorite movie is called "Kung Fu Hustle", go and check it out! (if you have time).

FEM ELLIPSER
Fem ellipser consists of five short pieces that are connected by omissions (ellipses), or might actually be omissions themselves. I tried working with idea of using ellipses to point out (reference) processes that are set in motion but not spelled out completely. As such, the piece is a collection of overlapping mini-processes, individual parts being interrupted and replaced by new ones, and action and inaction standing side by side.
