Bio Ingrid Kindem
Ingrid Kindem is a Norwegian composer, musician and music-producer with many years of engagements for “Concerts Norway”, “The Telenor Culture Program” and “The Norwegian Broadcasting Association” (NRK). She has been working with cultural exchange programmes in Asia, Africa and The Middle East for two decades. The collaborations include exchange of live musical expressions, network building and exchange of knowledge, competence and culture.
In June 2014 she was elected as the chair of NOPA (Norwegian Society of composers and lyricists). She is a member of the board of TONO (Norwegian Performing Rights Society).
As a composer she mainly works with modern Nordic expressions inspired by Norwegian classical composers and folk music. She uses electronics as a tool for manipulating old folk- instruments, nature sounds and rhythms to create her own musical electronic soundscapes.
She has been collaborating with folk and jazz-musicians from different parts of the world, always searching for a unique expression beyond traditional musical boundaries.
