Cecilie Ore

Norway, b. 1954.

Piano studies at the Norwegian State Academy of Music and in Paris, composition studies at the Institute of Sonology in Utrecht and with T. de Leeuw at the Sweelinck Conservatory in Amsterdam.


In the 80’s she won international recognition for several of her electro-acoustic works (including both first and second prizes at the International Rostrum for Electro-Acoustic Music 1988 for Etapper (Stages) and became increasingly involved with the problem of time in music; an involvement which resulted in the tetralogy Codex Temporis.


Ore frequently uses the computer as a compositional tool, and her music has a distinctly modernistic flavour due to its strict constructivism and austere sonorous universe.


Her most recent works are A. – a shadow opera, premiered at the Ultima Festival 2001, and the string quartet Cirrus, commissioned by WestDeutsche Rundfunk, Köln. A CD with her second cycle Tempura Mutantur (Non Nunquam, Nunquam Non, Semper Semper and Ictus) is released by Frau Musica (nova)/ Deutschland Radio.


A recent sound-installation is Lux Illuxit, created for the foyer at Riksarkivet in Oslo. She is currently working on a music-dramatic project for the Norwegian State Opera, 2008.
