The performance starts here

Stavanger-born vocalist, performer and sound artist Stine Janvin's work revolves around the physicality of sound and the voice in particular. In the below text, Janvin gives literal voice to her creative practice with a performative text that invites the reader to physically participate in the action of making sound rather than simply reading about it.


Stavanger-born vocalist, performer and sound artist Stine Janvin works with the extensive flexibility of her voice, and the ways in which it can be disconnected from its natural, human connotations. Created for variable spaces from theatres, to clubs and galleries, and more recently websites and digital platforms, the backbone of Janvin’s projects focus on the physical aspects of sound, vocal instrumentation and potential dualities of the natural versus artificial, tangible/digital, and minimal/dramatic. Her most recent works are SOLD (a dog and pony show) and renowned Fake Synthetic Music, from which she earned a Honorary Mention of the Prix Ars Electronica 2019. Janvin is a fellow at Berliner Künstlerprogramm des DAAD in 2020.
