Ellen Arkbro is a composer, musician and sound artist from Stockholm, Sweden. She studied with La Monte Young in Dream House in New York, as well as with Marc Sabat at Universität Der Künste in Berlin. She works with precision-tuned intervallic harmony.
Her work includes compositions for acoustic instruments and for synthetic sound, and for combinations of both, as well as installation work. Her site-specific organ harmonies has been presented in spaces such as Barbican in London, Kölner Philharmonie in Cologne, Museo de Arte Contemporanea Serralves in Porto, Tempelaukkio Kirke in Helsinki and Oude Kerk in Amsterdam.
In all of her work, Arkbro focuses on the qualities of harmonic sound that reveal listening as an active process of creative participation, inviting the listener to gradually transform into the sound itself.
Ellen will present a new work for organ on the incredible Harrison & Harrison instrument at St Mary Redcliffe Church.
