BIOGRAPHY


Hanna Hartman is a Swedish sound artist, composer and performer living in Berlin. Hartman studied Literature and Theater history at the Universities of Uppsala and Stockholm, Radio and Interactive Art at Dramatiska Institutet and Electro Acoustic Music at EMS in Stockholm.

Since around 1990 she has composed works for radio, electroaucustic music, sound installtions and numerous performances all over the world. She does also write pieces for instrumentalists. Her many awards and grants include Prix Europa (1998), the Karl-Sczuka-Prize (2005), the Phonurgia Nova Prize (2006), a Villa Aurora grant (2010) and the Rosenberg Prize (2011). During 2007 and 2008 she was Composer-in-Residence for Swedish Radio. Her work has been presented in numereous concerts and festivals such as Wittener Tage für neue Kammermusik, Darmstädter Ferienkurse (2012, 2014), Ultima Oslo Contemporary Music Festival (2012, 2104), Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival (2013), el nicho aural, Mexico City (2014), Akousma, Montreal (2014).

Having developed her very own language, the Swedish sound artist and composer Hanna Hartman creates compositions that are exclusively made up from authentic sounds which she has recorded around the world. Sounds are taken out of their original context and thus perceived in their purity. Hanna Hartman seeks to reveal hidden correspondences between the most diverse auditive impressions and in new constellations she creates extraordinary worlds of sound.

Rosenberg Prize 2011

2011 års Rosenbergpris till tonsättaren Hanna Hartman med följande motivering: ”Ett kompromisslöst sökande bland papperspåsar, spårvägsräls och tulpaner gestaltas i lyhörda skildringar av fokuserade klangvärldar. Med mästerlig precision och magnifik experimentlust blir vi inbjudna till ett lyssnande där tiden och rummet möts i oskiljaktig förening.” Rosenbergpriset delas ut till en tonsättare med betydelsefull och nyskapande verksamhet bakom sig.
