Mark

Silje Nes is based in Oslo, Norway / Berlin, Germany. She takes interest in particular and physical manifestations of sound. In her current work she explores the creation of environments that express a certain autonomy, removed from compositorial processes. She released Ames Room (2007) and Opticks (2010) on FatCat Records. She holds degrees in Philosophy, Design and Sound Studies, and her recent work has been supported by the Norwegian Arts Council, Music Norway and FFUK.
