It is finally time to start my work again in a bigger way, after a slowly moving year with my baby girl. There are some exciting projects coming up and I will perform next week on Danse Festival Barents in Hammerfest, Norway. My solo performance 'Survival of the Fittest' will be shown twice at Nissen Senteret, in the middle of a busy shopping centre on Saturday 7th of November at 13:00 and 15:00. Free entrance!

My collaboration with Diego Losa, an Argentinian composer living and working in Paris (GRM), aired in Radio France a few weeks back. You can listen to the short interview in French after which you can hear the new piece. It is all my voice and GRM tools which is Diego's platform for composing. We are planning on a long term collaboration. Enjoy this short taste of what is to come!

I am working on some videos, to finally have more to show on my website so that you can hear more of my Vocal Mosaic in case you have never heard me live. My video 'Into the Wilderness Within' will also be added here in a few months after the finishing touch! It is a work of heart, for my baby girl when she was still inside me. The ultimate creative process of creating new life!
I am looking forward to 2016 as a year when things start moving, big time! Please don't hesitate to contact me for any questions or inquiries you might have.
With radiant inspiration,
