Solovkina (Alexandra Nilsson) is a composer and artist from Stockholm. Her work stretches between sound art, noise, electronica and free improvisation, mostly with the trumpet as her main material and always with very defined concepts. Lyrical as well as brutal, minimalist and maximalist, organic and non-organic, she creates both order and chaos. With a broad musical background she has composed for film, theater and chamber ensembles and is active in various collaborations with visual artists.
She will perform Canon for Mimer, a site-specific composition for trumpet and electronics.
