Anders Ehlin (SWE) is a Berlin based, awarded composer and sound artist, mainly working in the fields of Cinema and Installation Art. His compositional practice spans from lush orchestra and choir works to immersive multi-channel compositions, seamlessly blending Musique Concrète, cinematic scoring and modern aesthetics, developed during previous years as a music producer/song writer in the pop and electronic music scene. Together with Selma Boskailo under their collective The New Liquidity Ehlin spent 2022 developing and touring with De-territorialized Listenings, an ongoing series of site-specific interactive binaural soundwalks which among other planned appearances will be featured during the 2023 iteration of Bienalsur, the Biennial for Contemporay Art of the Global South/Buenos Aires, Argentina.
In 2021 Ehlin finished composing and setting up the Protest Opera Wem gehört Lauratibor, a music-dramatic calling out of the aggressive selling-out of our cities, premiered in the form of a demonstration along Reichenbergerstraße in Berlin-Kreuzberg in June 2021 and performanced twice during The Copenhagen Opera Festival the same year.
In recent years Ehlin has delved into artistic research around language, cognitive dissonance and resonating bodies. This research has manifested itself in a directly related sound sculptural practice, and his artworks have in the past few years been exhibited at The Vitra Design Museum (Wald-am-Rein), Aperto Raum (Berlin), ZKM (Karlsruhe), RA (London) and more. In parallel he has had several collaborations with video artist Jeremy Shaw, for whom he has developed the uncanny jumbled languages of the protagonists in Shaw’s last three video works, exhibited at Venice Biennial 2017, Centre Pompidou, Tate Modern, Julia Stoschek among others. With video artist Philipp Lachenmann a several year long and ongoing collaboration has resulted in a handful of technically challenging video works comprising abstract musical compositions played back on custom built multichannel sound systems in black boxes of Ehlin’s own design. He is also an improvising musician/sound artist with the Urban Intervention Dance project Tape Riot, which right before Covid lockdowns played in South Korea, Kosovo, and the US.
