Tine Surel Lange is a Danish/Norwegian composer and artist – based in the arctic Lofoten Islands, Norway, a true Nordic composer – with background from the Norwegian Academy of Music, The Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre, Sonic College (DK) and the Royal Danish Academy of Music. At the Nordic Music Days she will be a part of the project “The Sad Truth” a residency, workshop, netart project that starts already the 20th of May 2019 at Fleinvær, a small island outside Bodø.
Tine Surel Lange is working with the surrounding world both thematically and as materials and her works range from experimental chamber music to electro acoustic pieces (live electronics, soundscape composition, installation, ambisonics) to performances and audiovisual works. She has also done music to several theatre and dance performances. She belongs to a new generation of artists and composers who work with 3D audio, immersive and surrounding sound. She is engaged in listening aesthetics and our psychological categorization of sound. Her hope is to create increased empathy to our surroundings through listening.
The Sad Truth
On May 20th the project “Sad Truth” gets underway, where six artists are gathered for a week on the small island of Fleinvær, outside Bodø. There they will collect sounds, pictures, and films, and collaborate on digital artworks.
“Human beings are perhaps the first beings on Earth who can and must make a choice about whether to live in equilibrium with nature as a whole, or take care of its diversity. Why then do we choose not to do that which is obviously correct and important? We are the first generation to have both the knowledge and tools to take action – if we had the will. So, when the words that form the social debate are drained of their power, perhaps a space opens up for art and music to meaningfully contribute.”
