Malin Bång

“My music is an exploration of unpredictability and contrasts in intensity, an expression of playful roughness as well as delicate intimacy.”

 

Malin Bång’s music is an exploration of movement and energy. She defines her musical material according to their amount of friction to create a spectrum of unpredictable and contrasting actions, ranging from the intimate and barely audible to the harsh and obstinate. In her work she often incorporates sound objects to explore a rich sound world and to suggest that a musical content can be shaped by anything valuable to the artistic purpose.
Malin Bång is residing in Stockholm, Sweden and is the composer in residence and a founding member of the Curious Chamber Players. Her work includes music for instrumental ensembles, orchestra, staged music, electronic music and instrumental performance pieces. Lately she has specifically explored the mixed instrumental ensemble extended with sound objects in collaboration with the members of CCP.
Her works are performed in Europe, United States and Japan and some recent and upcoming collaborations and commissions include the Ensemble Recherche at the Wittener Tage für Neue Musik, Ensemble Nikel at the Donaueschinger Musiktage, Ensemble Mosaik at the Double Double Series in Stockholm, Nadar Ensemble and Curious Chamber Players for the Darmstadt Ferienkurse and the Strasbourg Musica Festival. During 2010 she was awarded the Kranichsteiner Stipendienpreis for her ensemble work Turbid Motion at the Darmstadt Festival. Malin Bång's works are published by the Paris-based internet publisher Babelscores.
