Somewhere along the intersection between electronic music and sound art, SØS’s characteristic style is recognised for it’s insistent rhythms, combined with a meticulous exploration of textures and timbres, as raw sounds are framed by symphonic forms to create a unique expressivity.
SØS Gunver Ryberg’s performance and production history is rich, long and bewildering: modern compositions, multichannel recordings, installation and exhibition works, dance/performance art, commissioned productions, audio walks and, of course, regular live music performances.
With her academic background rooted in modern composition and sound art, SØS is one of a kind, delivering sonic assaults beyond what you’d regularly expect from an artist of these merits.
SØS has performed in a variety of unconventional spaces and been invited to a wealth of cultural hubs all over the world, including Los Angeles, New York, Istanbul and Berlin. Her work is often site-specific, including compositions for The Royal Library’s 12 channel speaker system in Copenhagen, and a multichannel concert in a defunct underground water reservoir.
We’re very proud to have this rare specimen on stage at PHONO15.
