Astrid Sonne is a Copenhagen-based composer and viola player. With a background in classical music, she opens up an electronic space to channel different perceptions of sensory and emotional states of being through open, melodic compositions. Balancing contrasts is a reoccurring theme in Astrid Sonnes work, where alternation between repetition and renewal is used as a mean of expression.
