SOUND ROOM LXIV
Ann Rosén was originally trained as a sculptor and has been active as a sound artist and composer since the 90's. She is a founding member of Syntjuntan and 2013 their album was awarded the Manifest prize for the best experimental album. As well as creating sound installations Ann composes both instrumental and electroacoustic music often utilising her self-made electronic instruments. Ann's latest album Bredvid is nominated to the Manifest prize 2017. Her trans-disciplinary umbrella project the Great Barrier Orchestra aims to challenge our inner and outer barriers, the ones we carry inside ourselves and the ones we encounter in the world around us.

Impromptu electro-acoustics in the name of pettu & pottu.
Sculpting electronics and disassembling objects, sometimes coming up with music. Lately been trying to teach my hands to act separately. Letting the sun shine on dusty magnetic tapes. Recordings from the radio: people calling to the Luonto-ilta and imitating animals they have seen. In a party leaning over a cellphone and listening to the only rehearsal tape by my band which will probably never play again, great bassline.
