Bergrún Snæbjörnsdóttir


Bergrún (b. 1987) is an Icelandic composer/performer based in Reykjavík/Oakland. Often she turns to personally designed notation systems such as animated/graphic notation to recreate perceived metaphysical structures that have a basis in empirical observations on relations and causalities. Her work has been performed in Europe, Australia and in the United States by groups such as the Oslo Philharmonic (NO), Decibel (AUS) and the Iceland Symphony Orchestra. As a performer Bergrún has a diverse background, having toured and recorded with bands as well as being a performer of new music. Bergrún is currently a M.A. student in composition at Mills College, CA.

Her work The cancerous cell  will be performed by Distractfold in "Nordic forests" at 6:00 and 9:15 PM on 29 September.
