Christian Skjødt

Born 1980 in Aalborg, Denmark. Sound artist and improviser. In his work a boundary pushing curiosity permeates, where improvisation often serves as the focal point. Deconstruction, contrasts, and untraditional instruments are highly present in his work, that during the last years have been awarded with several prizes. Besides being active in many different artistic projects where electroacoustic experiments, installations and performativity collide, Christian is also the curator and founder of the record label Tonometer Music objectifying creative and adventurous music on vinyl in limited editions. Christian himself appears on more than 25 record releases, and during the last years, he has, besides Denmark, been performing in Sweden, Norway, Germany, Ireland, France, Italy, Switzerland, Hungary, Czech Republic and Canada. Christian has a master's degree from the Royal Academy of Music, where he currently teaches electronic music. Furthermore he has been teaching workshops in Sweden, Italy, and Mali, Africa, among other places, and enjoying the possibility of recording melting ice in Greenland.
