Ann Rosén’s sound art involves expanding the palette of sounds using her own self-built instruments. Glitches, sparks and clicks, white noise and electronic artefacts characterise Ann Rosén’s sound world, as do spatial soundscapes created using real-time synthesis. Many times there are visual elements of design, equipment and materials innovatively integrated into her performances. In recent years the composing – usually in combination with her self-made electronic musical instruments – has taken an increasingly large place in Ann’s oeuvre.

In recent years he has worked with a variety of compositional and musical projects such as ”Sound Excursions in the Stockholm Archipelago” where he together with Ann Rosen performed EAM concerts and workshops in Stockholms Archipelago using a sailboat as a base.
