Bio

I write music and code to listen in, finding the fractured and the fragile. Then carefully carrying it out into the light. My search takes me between chaotic mathematics, software sublimity and the fundamental nature of sound and pitch.

Torn between computer screens and musical instruments I asked my parents for a book on C++ programming at the age of 10. Spending many nights reading this blue brick, however, was not enough to dissuade me from the musical path, keeping coding as a passion. Now through building, programming and playing my own digital musical and audiovisual instruments, I get to merge the fragile acoustic with the fantastic digital world.

I have built several digital musical instruments, written and produced music for short films (for which I received the award for Best Original Music, Novemberfestivalen 2016) and regularly perform as a solo violist and in ensembles. I hold a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Composition from the University of Gothenburg and has recently received my Master of Arts with First Class Honours in Art and Technology from the University of Limerick.

Since October 2019 I am working as a Research Engineer in Software Art at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm (KTH) together with the rest of the re|thread team.
