Ann Rosén was originally trained as a sculptor and has been active as a sound artist and composer since the 90s. She is a founding member of Syntjuntan and 2013 their album was awarded the Manifest prize for the best experimental album. As well as creating sound installations Ann composes both instrumental and electroacoustic music often utilising her self-made electronic instruments. Ann’s latest album Bredvid is nominated to the Manifest prize 2017. Her trans-disciplinary umbrella project the Great Barrier Orchestra aims to challenge our inner and outer barriers, the ones we carry inside ourselves and the ones we encounter in the world around us.
Researching local barriers, developing a performable sound installation module will be the focus for my HIAP residence. — Ann Rosén
