Stavanger-born, Berlin-based vocalist Stine Janvin Motland works with experimental music, sound and audiovisual performance. Through a diverse range of projects and collaborations (In Labour, The Subjective Frequency Transducer, Native Instrument, Stine II), she explores and challenges the physical features of the voice, the acoustics of her external/internal surroundings and new performance strategies.
With a special interest in the ambiguous and unrecognizable qualities of the voice, Motland's recent work is focused on imitation and abstract storytelling through sound collages referring to a variety of genres and traditions of electronic music, sound poetry, club and folk music.
At CTM 2017 Motland will present "Fake Synthetic Music," a driving imitation of melodic synthetic sequences and a tribute to past and present pioneers of electronic music and rave deconstruction. It features audiovisual illusions, in-ear tones and high-frequency exhaustion for voice, echo and spatial distribution.
Stine Janvin Motland is supported by the 2017 SHAPE platform, co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.
