In mid October the four participants of Borealis Ung Komponist met up for the second gathering, together with the ensemble TABULA RASA, which they are writing music for. The mentor for the second workshop was visual artist, composer, musician and performance artist Camille Norment

One of this year’s participants is Astrid Solberg. Her compositions balance conceptually on the edges of performance art and instrumental theatre. Power structures and feminism in music and art is of great interest to Astrid, in addition to internet culture, mental health and dogs. Her recent work is focused around video, choreography and visual elements in different forms, often presented through satire and humour.
