Uno dei più profondi interessi di Sofia Jernberg come cantante è quello di esplorare le possibilità “strumentali” della voce. Il suo vocabolario canoro include suoni e tecniche che spesso contraddicono uno stile convenzionale del canto. Ha scavato a fondo nella vocalizzazione non verbale, nel canto difonico, nel canto senza tono e in quello distorto.

Sofia Jernberg è una cantante sperimentale, compositrice, improvvisatrice e performer. Come compositrice ha creato opere commissionate da Barents composer orchestra, Swedish Radio P2, Stockholm Jazz Festival, Trondheim jazz orchestra, Oslo 14 Vocal Ensemble, Klang - Copenhagen Avantgarde Music Festival, BANFF - Center for arts and creativity, The Gothenburg Combo e vari altri ensemble da camera. È nata in Etiopia nel 1983. È cresciuta in Etiopia, Vietnam e Svezia. Dal 2011 vive a Oslo, Norvegia.



ALMA’S CLUB

Nel 2016 abbiamo inaugurato la Club Session; un programma musicale minuto che indagava la musica accentuandone la componente performativa. L’anno scorso, all’interno del Club, c’era John the Housband, la band di Alma Söderberg e dei suoi amici, che apriva la serata con un ukulele e cantando “Here we are, John the Housband, we’d like to sing songs for you, but we’re a bit shy to do, we’ve travelled from far, to bring sunshine in your heart, can I go home with you?” ed è stato subito chiarissimo che sì, doveva assolutamente venire a casa con noi e per ampliare la nostra casa le abbiamo chiesto di curare il programma musicale di quest’anno. E così la Club Session è diventata l’Alma’s Club: “to bring sunshine in your heart”.

One of Sofia Jernberg’s 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.

ALMA’S CLUB

In 2016, we’ve initiated a Club Session; a tiny music programme investigating music by accentuating its performative feature. Last year, within the Club, there was John the Housband -Alma Söderberg and her friends’ band- who opened the evening with a ukulele and singing “Here we are, John the Housband, we’d like to sing songs for you, but we’re a bit shy to do, we’ve travelled from far, to bring sunshine in your heart, can I go home with you?” and it was immediately clear that yes, she absolutely had to come home with us. Thus, to expand our house we’ve asked her to curate this year music programme. So the Club Session has become the Alma’s Club: “to bring sunshine in your heart”.
