My name is Bjørn Erik Haugen, and I have an MA from the National Academy in Oslo 2007. I work mainly with compositions, sound- and video-installation. I work from a conceptual platform where the idea to the work comes before the material, media or way of expression.

I have the last two years moved from noise and Improvised music to score-based music. As a composer I work conceptually in my work.  I attended the ISCM in 2009, Nordic Music Days 2010 in Copenhagen and ISCM 2011. I have written pieces for Duo Hevans, Jane Chapman and Mira Benjamin. This year I will write a concert for Nordic Voices that will be performed at Ultima 2014. I will also exhibit a sound installation at ISCM 2014 Wroclaw.

My works has been shown on the annual national autumn exhibition in Norway, and have been screened in Wienna, Barcelona, Sweden, Germany, England and in USA. I was exhibited at Transmediale 2012, Berlin. In 2012 I received a «Honorary Mention» at Prix Ars Electronica 2012 in the section Digital Musics & Sound Art. One of my videos was screened at Palais de Tokyo, at Rencontres Internaiconales, december 2012. I also exhibited at WRO International Media Art Biennale in May last year. This year I have exhibited at Bucharest Biennale and at Bristol Biennial.
