Arctic landscapes, surrounding sounds, mythologies, and sound choreography are some of the inspirations that shape the works by 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 connotations colour 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 coming doom of the human race.
Surel Lange studied composition at the Norwegian Academy of Music with an exchange semester studying digital composition at the Lithuanian Academy of Music, as well as studies in sound design and sound art at Sonic College, and 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.
