Juhani Silvola Norway
I work at a high level in a wide variety of styles. My main areas of expertise are
electro-acoustic contemporary music, acoustic traditional music and experimental
jazz, rock and electronica. I have a masters degree in composition from the
Norwegian Academy of Music, where I studied with Natasha Barrett.
My music is characterised by expressive energy and visceral impact, melodic
invention and multilayered and highly detailed soundscape. I both record and mix
my own music, and have a studio in downtown Oslo. I play plucked instruments,
synthesizers and percussion, and have access to extremely high level musicians
who play various styles and instruments.
My experience of composing for visual media has been mainly within theatre
(Norwegian National Theatre) and contemporary dance. I am now expanding to
write for film & tv, and I wish to meet relevant people for that purpose.
I have mixed and produced many high profile albums and worked with amongst
others: Highasakite, Sarah-Jane Summers, Jenny Hval, Sam Lee, Frode Haltli
AvantFolk, Unni Løvlid, Splashgirl, Erlend Apneseth, Poing, Erlend Viken Trio,
Sigrid Moldestad, Joachim Badenhorst, Sver, Hayden Powell and Jessica Sligter.
