Stine Janvin Motland (NO)

Stine Janvin Motland (b.1985) is a performer and composer based in Stavanger, Oslo and Berlin. With an instrumental and physical approach, she explores and pushes the limits of the natural acoustics of the voice, and what a singer can, and cannot be. Her work involves elements of conceptual and spontaneous composition, structured improvisation, performance, and sound poetry. Ongoing projects are the solo piece In Labour, The Subjective Frequency Transducer with Fredrik Olofsson and Marianne Vierø, and Native Instrument with Felicity Mangan. Alongside her own work, Stine is a performer of contemporary music, and works with composition, movement and voice in a number of interdisciplinary projects. «Stine II» is her new solo project. It is built up around deconstructed field recording and vocal recordings. It is perhaps best described as an abrupt, electro-inspired dance music.
