Lise-Lotte Norelius (b. 1961) - composer and performer

Professional background

Lise-Lotte Norelius (b. 1961) is a composer and performer based in Stockholm and active in the fields of EAM, live electronics and Sound art.
As a performer she works both as solo artist and in various collaboration projects.

She is one of the founders of the DIY ensemble Syntjuntan who has got a lot of attention for their workshops and concerts with textile instruments.
LLN has a long history as percussionist with great experience from different fields like traditional african music, experimental rock, free improvised music and from combining percussion and sampled sounds in the group Anitas Livs.
She studied electroacoustic composition at Royal College in Stockholm 1998-2002 and developed her work with live-electronics and realtime processing of percussion as well as other sound sources.
Since then, she has composed music for speakers (EAM), musicians and live-electronics, installations, theater, poetry and dance performances.    
Her penchant for small, pitiful or ugly sounds, rhythmic structures, layers and long lines characterize her music, which can be both beautiful, harsh and brutal. The last years she has been exploring controllable motors, home made noisy devices, synth jewelry, vacuum cleaners and floppy drives, usually in combination with her Max/MSP software, various sensors and effect boxes.
