Annemarie Borg looks into the coming together of the visuals and sound recordings of iWhales with her own musical compositions, which have resulted in her next release Adagio in Nomine cetus. The presentation will include discussion, a short video with music, plus a live performance.
Born in Paris, with a French and Swedish background, Annemarie studied music to obtain a diploma in Performance and Opera Studies from Birkbeck University in London. In addition, she studied acting, and her career thus far has taken her throughout Europe and across North America.
Her passion for French Music and Poetry led Annemarie to combine interpretation and musicality in songs regardless of the time in which they were written. Multi-talented, she speaks fluent French, English, and Swedish, sings in seven languages, and scripts and performs her own one-woman shows. In Paris, she was a prize-winner in the Concours General de Musique et d'Art Dramatique.
Over time, Annemarie has worked with a range of skilled musicians such as Kenny Clayton, Nicolas Meier, Dave Suttle, Gabriel Keen, Antonio Testa and Nova. Her own music has been described variously as "eclectic and experimental", and "electronic with some classical colouring with at times engaged and emotional vocals".
We are pleased to welcome Annemarie to Helsinki for a thought-provoking presentation.
