About

Tine Surel Lange (b. 1989) – Danish/Norwegian composer, artist and performer – based in Henningsvær, Lofoten Islands, Norway.

…I work with the surrounding world both thematic and as material. In a time where we are constantly surrounded by sound, have we forgotten how to listen?
With my art I want to make people listen, with the hope that we through listening get more in contact with and care more about our surroundings and the changes happening. My works range from compositions for solo-instruments or ensemble with/without live-electronics to electro-acoustic pieces (live-electronics, soundscape composition, installation, ambisonics, etc), to performances. Most pieces are audiovisual, and there is always a strong focus on the live-experience.

My pieces have been performed at festivals like Borealis, Nordic Music Days, UNM, Druskomanija, Darmstadt International Summer Course, and in all of the Nordic countries, Lithuania, Germany, France, Russia and Canada.
