Karoline Wallace is a singer, improviser and composer from Stabekk. She has released music with her projects Stiklinger, Lang vinter and Molecules & Erlend Skomsvoll. She has also written for string quartet, big bands, wind orchestras and choirs. Her music and singing is inspired by Norwegian folk music, jazz and contemporary classical music, and she is always seeking sounds that tickle and shake. She has a masters degree in composition and performance from the Rhythmic Music Conservatory in Copenhagen and a bachelor from the jazz department at the Grieg Academy in Bergen. She has lived in Berlin, Bergen, Stockholm, Gothenburg, Copenhagen, and now Oslo. She gets her main compositional inspiration from the instrument or person she is writing for and all the possibilities that lies within them, her projects therefore often involve many musicians. Karoline participates in Borealis Ung Komponist 2021/2022.
