Jenny Soep - Sound of Stockholm 2018Jenny Soep is a reportage illustrator and visual artist, specialising in drawing for and from the equally original, alternative and experimental live music and art(s) scene. Having drawn the likes of Holly Herndon, Patti Smith, Nadah El Shazly, The Residents, Ryoji Ikeda, Fuck Buttons, Jenny focuses on artists that aim to push and cross boundaries, drawing in a style where the music itself alters the drawing.

Working predominantly on paper or digitally, Jenny collaborates with musicians and performers, both in documenting them, or ‘visually’ jamming with them – improvising scenography that grows uniquely to each live set. Her most current collaboration is in duo ‘Shapes of Sounds‘ with composer/improviser Alexandra Nilsson.

This year, using Instagram as her main platform for her ‘immediate’ drawings, Jenny will be specifically documenting Sound of Stockholm in their trademark ‘monochrome’ black and yellow.

Sound of Stockholm is a unique festival collaboration between some of the most prominent organizations of the Stockholm experimental music scene: Fylkingen, FRIM, Kulturföreningen SEKT, Studio 53, Konstmusiksystrar, Samtida Musik and STHLM Drone Society. Together they create an international platform, where the Stockholm audience can experience groundbreaking artists of diverse musical fields.

This year’s festival has a special emphasis on nordic collaborations, funded by Puls, a project grant initiated by The Nordic Culture Fund. In addition to this, the festival will also present a large number of artists from the rest of Europe and the United States.
