Sofia Jernberg is a Swedish experimental singer, composer, improviser and performer, born in Ethiopia 1983. She grew up in Ethiopia, Vietnam and Sweden. Since 2011 she lives in Oslo, Norway. One of her deepest interests as a singer is to explore the “instrumental” possibilities of the voice. Her singing vocabulary includes sounds and techniques that often contradict a conventional singing style. She has dug deep into non-verbal vocalizing, split tone singing, pitchless singing and distorted singing. For our podcast, she performs two original compositions for solo voice. One Pitch and Acoustic Delay are two studies on timber and movement.
