STINE JANVIN MOTLAND
LAMPO PERFORMANCE SERIES
In a performance at the Madlener House on November 21, Norwegian artist and composer Stine Janvin Motland, will present her solo project In Labour. Motland’s piece challenges the concert format, raising questions about how we listen within and without the designated performance space. Using an omnidirectional, wireless microphone, the remarkable vocalist will move between the main performance space of the Madlener House ballroom and the adjacent rooms, transmitting her vocal abstractions and the surrounding ambience live to the audience. In addition, Motland will perform a solo improvisation during the event.
Please note: Due to the installation of artwork for our current exhibition Barbara Kasten: Stages, seating for this performance is extremely limited. RSVP is required and event entry is first-come, first-serve, so please plan to arrive early. Doors will open at 7:30pm.
Stine Janvin Motland is a vocalist, improviser, and composer based in Stavanger, Oslo and Berlin. Using highly original, extended vocal techniques and elements of physical theater, she pushes the natural acoustics of the human voice and thus, the definition of the singer, to explore its limits and its implications. Motland’s ongoing projects include her solo piece In Labour; Native Instrument with Felicity Mangan; and the Brigitte & Paula band with Maria Ramvi and Camilla Vislie. She also works with artists such as Lasse Marhaug, Maja Ratkje, Fred Lonberg-Holm, and Mats Gustafsson in a number of interdisciplinary projects. Selected recent performances include the Unsound Festival, Krakow; Performa 13, New York; Music Unlimited, Wels; Ultima Oslo Contemporary Music Festival, Oslo; Festival CRAK, Paris; International Theater Festival MESS, Sarajevo; Pérez Art Museum, Miami; Festival Densités, Fresnes-en-Woëvre; Jazz á Luz, Luz-Saint-Sauveur; Nya Perspektiv, Västerås; and All Ears Festival, Oslo.
This performance is presented in partnership with Lampo, with support provided by the American-Scandinavian Foundation. Founded in 1997, Lampo is a non-profit organization for experimental music and intermedia projects. Visit www.lampo.org.
