& radio producer, arts journalist and editor.

& radioproducent, kulturjournalist och redaktör.

Susanne Skog’s work within text, sound art and composition has its roots in narrative art forms, experimental radio, radio drama and documentaries. Her sonic artwork evolves from her own recordings from around the world, sonic material which she turns into new shapes and expressions, frictions and correlations, often considering movements and spatialisation as a vital element.

She also works as an arts journalist and editor, currently for Nutida musik (the leading paper periodical for sound art and contemporary music in the Nordic countries), and as freelance radio producer. In the early nineties she was also one of the founding editors of the most influential feminist magazine in Sweden, bang.

She was chairperson for Fylkingen (a society and venue for new music and experimental art in Stockholm) 2012 – 2015, and for Sound of Stockholm, the annual international festival for new music and sound art, 2012 – 2016.

Her compositions and sound installations have been presented in many contexts around the world, such as Experimental Intermedia New York, The Moscow Biennale for Contemporary Art, Transmediale/Nordic Embassies Berlin, World Expo 2010/Swedish pavilion in Shanghai, Ark Hill Music Week in Tokyo and in various Swedish music and art spaces, festivals as well as in the radio, in Sweden and elsewhere.

Susanne Skog studied Philosophy, Aesthetics and Feminist theory at the University of Stockholm, Artistic Radio Production at Dramatiska institutet in Stockholm, Performative Criticism at Stockholm University of the Arts/Royal Institute of Art, and electroacoustic music at EMS in Stockholm.
