About

EN

Copenhagen based sound artist and composer Sofie Birch works primarily with synthesizers and field recordings to create ambient and melodic sound collages. Her techniques of exploration move between improvisation, analogue synthesis and instrumental experiments which carefully fuse into soothing minimal soundscapes.

She began releasing solo works in 2017 through danish label Infinite Waves and in 2019 she released the albums Planetes through german label Seil and Island Alchemy through Californian Constellation Tatsu.

When performing Sofie Birch uses her surroundings and the impulses from her audience to build spirited and improvised live shows. With a bachelor degree in sound design, she has collected a great amount of technical knowledge to combine with self-taught skills in guitar, piano and vocal training which also leads her into works with film scores and soundtracks for especially animated art films.

Den København-baserte komponisten Sofie Birch jobber hovedsakelig med synthesizere og feltopptak for å lage ambient og melodiske lydcollager. Hennes leteteknikker beveger seg mellom improvisasjon, analog syntese og instrumentale eksperimenter som forsiktig smeltes sammen til beroligende og minimale lydbilder.

Soloverkene kom først i 2017 gjennom det danske labelet Infinite Waves, og i 2019 ga hun ut albumene Planetes gjennom det tyske labelet Seil og Island Alchemy gjennom amerikanske Constellation Tatsu.

Når hun opptrer bruker Sofie omgivelsene og impulsene fra publikummet til å bygge livlige og improvisierte liveshow. Med en bachelorgrad i lyddesign har hun samlet mye teknisk kunnskap som hun kombinerer med selvlærte ferdigheter i gitar, piano og vokaltrening, som også leder henne inn i arbeid med filmmusikk og lydspor for spesielt animerte kunstfilmer.

Highlights
  • Created the vocal based track Look on danish Kulør, Time Swim on Lobster Theremin and with the audible cassette postcard Hidden Terraces released by Vaagner Records.
  • Has created compositions for installation works varying from VR-experiences to multidisciplinary art and science projects such as Baum/Leahy and Pernille Kjaer.
  • Has performed at MONOM (DE) and Roskilde Festival (DK).
