Arctic landscapes, surrounding sounds, mythologies, and sound choreography are some of the inspirations that shape the works of the Norwegian composer and interdisciplinary artist Tine Surel Lange (b. 1989, Vesterålen, Norway). Based in Lofoten, Northern Norway, her work is rooted in organic material – with a focus on listening, space, and how different connotations color how we listen to and experience art. Lately, she has been focused on sound choreography, 3D sound, sounding objects, sound for scenic productions, and creating conceptual works for sound and image – fascinated by magical realism and the impending doom of the human race.

Surel Lange studied composition at the Norwegian Academy of Music with an exchange semester spent studying digital composition at the Lithuanian Academy of Music. Additionally, she studied sound design and sound art at Sonic College, along with studies in early music and viola da gamba at the Royal Danish Academy of Music in Copenhagen. Since 2017 she has been working full-time as a composer and interdisciplinary artist presenting compositions, installations, performances, and presentations all over the world.
