SØS Gunver Ryberg

SØS Gun­ver Ryberg is an award-win­ning com­pos­er, sound artist and live per­former known for her uncom­pro­mis­ing inten­si­ty, ground­break­ing and genre-break­ing releas­es and con­certs.

In 2019 she released the crit­i­cal­ly acclaimed album Entan­gled” on Avian (Berlin) and in 2020 most recent­ly WHYT 030 — The sun is new every day” on AD93 (Lon­don). The lat­ter has sev­er­al nom­i­na­tions for instance the pres­ti­gious Nordic Coun­cil’s music prize 2022.

There is a strong trans­for­ma­tive pow­er in SØS Gun­ver Ryberg’s music. Pow­er­ful and spher­i­cal tex­tures and tim­bre with often insis­tent rhythms that explore oth­er states of con­scious­ness. The music and sounds are cre­at­ed from elec­tron­ic instru­ments and often processed field record­ings from the world, which are framed by almost sym­phon­ic forms with their own expressiveness.

The core of my work is an explo­ration of the essence of exis­tence. Music is not enter­tain­ment for me, but a neces­si­ty. Our times and the prob­lems and com­plex­i­ty of the indi­vid­ual are reflect­ed in my works.”

From fes­ti­vals and venues such as Berlin Phil­har­monie con­cert hall, DR con­cert hall, Berghain, Aton­al Fes­ti­val, Flow Fes­ti­val etc. to art gal­leries and muse­ums to site-spe­cif­ic loca­tions such as an under­ground water reser­voir, a sub­way train, a swim­ming pool, a aban­don pow­er sta­tion and an old indus­tri­al ship to name a few.

SØS Gun­ver Ryberg has received numer­ous awards and nom­i­na­tions for her music. She often com­pos­es in immer­sive for­mats such as mul­ti-chan­nel works, instal­la­tions, dance, per­for­mances, film, VR/AR and SØS Gun­ver Ryberg received not least a BAF­TA nom­i­na­tion and many awards for the music for the mul­ti award-win­ning com­put­er game INSIDE”.
