Malin Bång’s music is an exploration of movement and energy. She defines her musical material according to their amount of friction to create a spectrum of unpredictable and contrasting actions, ranging from the intimate and barely audible to the harsh and obstinate. In her work she often incorporates acoustic objects to explore a rich sound world and to suggest that a musical content can be shaped by anything valuable to the artistic purpose.

Malin Bång (born in 1974) is residing in Stockholm, Sweden and is the composer in residence and a founding member of the Curious Chamber Players. Her works are performed worldwide and some recent projects include the portrait concert “how long is now” at Ultraschall Festival 2014 with performances by the CCP, collaborations with Klangforum Wien, Ensemble Recherche, Nadar, Ensemble Nikel at festivals such as a Wittener Tage für Neue Musik, Donaueschinger Musiktage, Darmstädter Ferienkurse, Huddersfield Festival, Impuls in Graz and Gaudeamus in Utrecht.  In 2012 did a one year residency in Berlin, invited as a guest by the DAAD Berliner Künstlerprogramm. She was awarded the Kranichsteiner Stipendienpreis for her ensemble work Turbid Motion at the Darmstadt Festival in 2010.
