We Like We - Sound of Stockholm 2018

We like We is an experimental performance and sound collective based in Copenhagen, Denmark. Expanding their inspiration and influence from their classical roots to the world of electronic music, We like We has a dynamic and intuitional sound beyond the grid of genres. The quartet consists of Katrine Grarup Elbo (violin), Josefine Opsahl (cello), Sara Nigard Rosendal (percussion) and Katinka Fogh Vindelev (voice).

All four of them are classically trained and share a desire for constantly expanding their expression and methods, taking on a variety of projects such as albums, installations, film scoring and site specific performances. Their acclaimed debut album a new Age of Sensibility was released in 2014 on the Danish label The Being Music, followed by Next to the entire All, released in 2017 on the German label Sonic Pieces.

We like We performed at festivals, museums and venues such as Eurosonic Noorderslag (NL), Festival Musica Estranha (BR), Nordklang Festival (CH), Roskilde Festival (DK), Fusion Festival (DE), Classical:NEXT (NL), Dias Nordicos (ES) 2015, National Gallery of Denmark (DK) and Frost Festival (DK).

During fall 2017 We like We were artists in residence at Festival Musica Estranha in São Paulo Brazil, playing concerts and composing a collaborative piece with Brazilian choir Mawaca, specialized in indigenous music from all over the world.

The 12 hour multi-channel concert installation Time is Local, which they composed with the renowned Danish sound artist Jacob Kirkegaard (who performed at Sound of Stockholm last year), was premiered in November 2017 at Thorvaldsens Museum in Copenhagen, and contained a unique combination of sonic evocations from the chambers of the museum and the acoustic sound of We like We.

During 2018/19 We like We will be composing the music for a new opera produced by NORDIC OPERA, set to premiere in Copenhagen late Summer 2019.


We like We är ett experimentellt performance- och ljudkollektiv med bas i Köpenhamn. De hämtar inspiration från sina klassiska rötter såväl som elektronisk musik och deras dynamiska sound spänner över ett flertal genrer. Kvartetten består av Katrine Grarup Elbo (violin), Josefine Opsahl (cello), Sara Nigard Rosendal (slagverk) och Katinka Fogh Vindelev (röst).

Alla fyra är klassiskt skolade och delar intresset för att ständigt utveckla sina uttryck och metoder. De arbetar i många olika former, såsom album, installationer, filmmusik, och platsspecifik performance. Deras hyllade debutalbum a new Age of Sensibility släpptes 2014 på det danska bolaget The Being Music och uppföljaren Next to the entire All gavs ut 2017 på tyska Sonic Pieces.

Kollektivet har framträtt på festivaler, museer och scener såsom Eurosonic Noorderslag (NL), Festival Musica Estranha (BR), Nordklang Festival (CH), Roskilde-festivalen (DK), Fusion Festival (DE), Classical:NEXT (NL), Dias Nordicos (ES), Statens Museum for Kunst (DK) samt Frost Festival (DK).

Hösten 2017 medverkade We like We på festivalen Musica Estranha i São Paulo i Brasilien. Där samarbetade de med den brasilianska kören Mawaca, specialiserad på olika former av folk- och världsmusik.

Den tolv timmar långa multikanal-installationen Time is Local, skriven tillsammans med den danska ljudkonstnären Jacob Kirkegaard, uruppfördes 2017 på Thorvaldsens Museum i Köpenhamn. Verket innehöll en unik kombination av rumsliga klanger från museets kammare och akustiska ljud från gruppen.

We like We har fått i uppdrag att skriva en opera för NORDIC OPERA, med beräknad premiär i Köpenhamn sensommaren 2019.
