School of Music Visiting Artist

Ellen Arkbro (b. 1990) is a composer musician sound-artist working with precision-tuned intervallic harmony. Her work includes compositions for acoustic instruments and for synthetic sound, and for combinations of both, as well as installation work. She has presented her site-specific work at Barbican in London, Kölner Philharmonie, Serralves in Porto, Issue Project Room in New York, Oude Kerk in Amsterdam, Silent Green in Berlin, Ina GRM in Paris and Tempelaukkio Kirke in Helsinki. In all of her work, Arkbro focuses on the qualities of harmonic sound that reveal listening as an active process of creative participation, inviting the listener to gradually transform into the sound itself.

Artist in Residence Series- Fall 2022

Most instruction will be suspended that week, allowing students to fully immerse in the programming.

Resident activities may include but are not limited to solo performances, group concerts, presentations and workshops on topics of the resident's choosing, in studio collaborations between residents and students, live ensemble collaborations between residents and students, and panel discussions.
