Agnes Hvizdalek

As a singer and improvising musician, Agnes Hvizdalek explores the relationship between intuition and reflection, the individual, the collective and the environment. Throughout Borealis Ung Komponist she will be making music performed by others for the first time. Agnes has dedicated her life to new music and incorporates her fascination with the human voice in her abstract vocal music. Her unconventional educational path took her everywhere around the phenomena of organized sound, from Cultural Anthropology, Musicology and Phonetics to Project Management and Leadership. She attended jazz-singing classes and courses about composition, improvised and contemporary music at the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna and learned a lot via collaborations and by teaching herself. Agnes was born in Austria in 1987 and moved to Norway in 2008.
