Two Rooms – Music by Young Composers

 

 

Despite her young age, Jenny Berger Myhre (b. 1991) is engaged in what seems like an endless amount of different projects. She is working actively both with experimental photography and music, and is also one of the initiators behind the multi-art festival, ILAF.

Berger Myhre has studied Musicology at the University of Oslo, taken a course in Live Electronics at the Norwegian Academy of Music and is currently participating in fellow Boost speaker Rune Rebne's composition project for girls. 

Berger Myhre will talk from a young musician's perspective about the importance of receiving and giving support to other female musicians, and how crucial it is to believe in women's abilities to create and do things themselves. 

In the past five years, Berger Myhre has collected field recordings, that she eventually has used to create small compositions. The result is her recently released debut album, LINT. She has written, mixed and produced the music herself. For more info about Jenny Berger Myhre's many projects, visit www.jennybergermyhre.com.
