When I play live music and improvisations they are performed in a number of constellations, forms and played on different instruments and objects. I come from a music background where my voice was in focus and with jazz and afro american music as the starting point. Later when I got deeper into exporing sound, my musical practice also changed into improvisations, playing with dissonances and vibrancy, field recordings and exploring my voice in new directions.

Here you can read more about some of the projects that I am involved in:

The Great Learning Orchestra – a network of about hundred musicians who explores music and listening.

Laurna Røde – E-Bow improvisation duo with David Sabel
