Susanna will play a selection of festivals in Europe this fall, in addition to various concerts in Norway. We are working on new web pages, which hopefully will be ready soon- with more updates.
Susanna has composed a piece called Mass For The Witch Woman for the vocal ensemble Oslo 14 led by Elin Rosseland. The piece premieres at nyMusikk's festival Only Connect in Oslo, the performance will happen at Fabrikken on 5th of June.
Susanna will play a solo concert in Berlin, at a concert series at Kiezsalon in Prenzlaur Berg.
In 2014 Susanna celebrated 10 years as a recording artist, with ten albums released- all of them highly acclaimed. The new technology and digitalized way of listening to music is exciting but also challenging both in the sense of new ways of listening, and how to get paid for making, playing and recording music. Susanna has decided to look back at her releases and also look back at the way she was listening to music when she grew up, though cassettes. SusannaSonata is releasing a Best Of-series with three cassettes, Volume One, Volume Two and Volume Three.
The Norwegian noiseartist and cassette-enthusiast Lasse Marhaug has designed the cover for the cassettes, which comes in beautiful black cardboard with white silkprint wrapping. The cassettes are numbered and signed by the artist. There are only 200 of each cassette.
Also, SusannaSonata is releasing 'Meshes of Voice' on double vinyl with beautiful artwork by Arne Bendik Sjur and graphic designer Johanna Blom, like the CD. Place your order and make sure you get one of the first 100 which will be numbered and signed by the artists. Expected to be finished in the summer 2015.
