Since I was a child I have felt most at home in nature, by the sea, in the forest.
Sitting by the piano I combine myself again, to the water, the flow, following what to come.
Sometimes it develops into more visual physical forms, but music comes first.
It´s a mystery and it´s magic.
Like in nature, where different shapes meet each other in a wholeness of light, sound and body.
This space, in between, is what I wish to pass further, where we are more than we see, and a part of everything.
Once working as a trained architect, Freja left her work and studied at an artschool for two years. There she started to write music, combining it with pictures in videoworks. She had her first solo exhibition 2012, integrating music in an installation together with videos, sculptures and large drawings. Since then her focus is on music; now including textures, forms and space into the music. The first album was released in 2014 – Watertime.
