ABOUT ME

I am a clasically trained percussionist, who works across genres and art fields. I am a part of the experimental sound collective We like We with whom I compose and play in a variety of projects.
I work solistically, in different chamber music constellations, music installations and theatre.

I have a bachelor’s degree from The Royal Danish Academy of Music and a Master’s Degree from Musikhögskolan in Malmö.

 

WE LIKE WE

We like We is an experimental performance and sound quartet based in Copenhagen, Denmark. Praising the collective We like We focuses on a collaborative working ethos utilizing a unique mix of instruments and musical background. We like We consists of Katrine Grarup Elbo (violin), Josefine Opsahl (cello), Katinka Fogh Vindelev (voice) and Sara Nigard Rosendal (percussion).

All four are classically trained, but share a desire for exploring, experimenting, jamming and shaping a sound of their own. Expanding their inspiration and influence from the classical roots We like We makes music driven by intuition and playfulness. Through their collaborative compositions We like We creates music that travels beyond the grid of genres.

Their first album a new Age of Sensibility was released November 2014 at the Danish label, The Being Music. We like We's second album was released on the Berlin label Sonic Pieces in November 2017.

Since then, they have been touring and playing concerts at venues like Roskilde Festival (DK), Fusion Festival (DE), Classical:NEXT (Rotterdam), Festival Nordicos (ES) and Festival Musica Estranha (BR).

We like We premiered their newly written opera Myte om Mørke / Myth of Darkness during Copenhagen Opera Festival 2019. The opera was comissioned by NordicOpera.
