With a background in philosophy, musicology, languages and classical music, and an ongoing engagement in cultural politics, Juliana Hodkinson works as a composer with sound as a medium of both shared and individual experience and agency. She is passionate about linking music with its others – silence, listening and ambient, incidental or environmental sounds, for example - which she often casts as central players, while musical concepts and elements serve as a backdrop. The conditions and contexts of performance determine her compositions, and so extremely diverse sonic material such as urban noise, children's toys, falling feathers, crashing egg shells, the strike of a match, a screaming electric guitar, or the warm sound of a classical violin might be combined to set off different forms of sonic experience. Juliana Hodkinson's work includes electroacoustic orchestral works, installations and performance pieces, and several major works in hybrid formats, including Angel View, released on col legno records, and Ground View, its sequel She has published on topics within re-enactment, collective subjectivities, social resonance within performance projects, and organizational strategies for migrant sonic practices. Juliana Hodkinson is Associate Professor in classical and electronic composition at the Royal Academy of Music in Aarhus, chairs the Danish Composers’ Society, and is a jury member of Berlin’s Hauptstadtkulturfonds.
