Alexandra Nilsson is a composer and musician based in Stockholm, Sweden. She mainly composes and performs with trumpet or other objects and live electronics.
Her work stretches between soundart, electronica, noise and free improvisation. She makes lyrical noise and swinging trash.
With a background in jazz and folklore, rhythm and improvisation are important elements of her work and performance. The interaction and borderland between acoustic and electronic sound worlds is also of great interest to her. In 2010 she got her Masters Degree in composition at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm. Her Master focused on music for film and she is interested in interactions between sound and image and narrative aspects. She has composed music for theatre and film, as well as jazz bands and chamber ensembles.
Marie Gavois’s artistry materializes issues of economic power and social policy in forms of performing arts, dance, text, music and film. The edge of ‘talking’ with big lettres and small lettres on stage, poetic politics, organization and independence interests her.
