JENNY BERGER MYHRE

b. 1991

lives in Oslo, Norway.


Jenny is a multidisciplinary artist working with sound, video and photography. Her work explores and exposes the personal in an honest and curious manner.


Her music is created from field recordings, fragments of melodies, computer generated sequences, modular synths and lo-fi electronics — resulting in soundscapes with references to both the electro-acoustic tradition as well as experimental pop music.


Jenny's work revolves around personal documentation and archives, intimacy, memory, reality and re-contextualisation. Since the release of her debut album “Lint” in 2017, she has been working with musician and novelist Jenny Hval, contributing to, and touring with the performance “The Practice of Love” throughout 2019. In 2021 she received the Norwegian Arts Council’s work grant for young artists, and she is currently working with a new album and audiovisual performance.


In 2019 she premiered the commissioned piece Notas y Notas y Notas... created for Borealis - en festival for eksperimentell musikk in collaboration with video artist Manuela de Laborde. The piece was developed during a residency in Mexico City and was shown in its early stage at El Nicho festival in 2018, before its world premiere at Borealis in March 2019. In 2020, she premiered her first piece for radio, named Here Is Always Somewhere Else. In 2021 she premiered two public space music compositions: Chidoribashi for Spikersuppa Lydgalleri, and Music for Swimming for Borealis.


Jenny is also curating F/eks - a concert series for electronic music and experimental pop in Oslo.
