Ellen Arkbro - born 1990 in Stockholm - is a composer and sound artist who works primarily with intervallic harmony in just intonation.
Her work includes full-length compositions for ensembles as well as electronic sound environments in the form of installations and live performances, using both traditional acoustic instruments and digital algorithmic sound synthesis. In all her work, Ellen Arkbro focuses on the qualities of harmonic sound that reveal listening as an active process of participatory construction rather than mere observation, inviting the listener to gradually transform into the sound itself.
Composed for and with Onceim musicians in collaboration with INA-GRM, this piece is premiered in public at Akousma #7, Studio 104, Maison de la radio et de la musique, Paris, on 29 May 2022, following a week-long residency at La Muse en circuit, Centre national de création musicale.
