Blue diving in the depths of the Universe
Feel the wind of particles. Open the door, dive into the Universe; you are suspended in the architecture of space where time bends.
Ingrid Obled is from another galaxy. To other people, she seems human. She had to forget many things to live her new life but her memories are sometimes stirred by science fiction movies or books. However she’s just here to experience human life and create music.
Her music contains hidden codes for humanity.
After having completed a classical music education in 2002 in double bass and electro-acoustic composition, Ingrid Obled was 2006 laureate of the international competition, Musica Viva, in Lisbon. Her composition Si je regarde (if I look), was performed at the Franco-Portuguese institute, and released in 2007 on the label Miso Records. In 2010, Soundlence was included as part of a collective installation in the Berardo Collection Museum in Belèm, Portugal.
She collaborated with various artists, including double bass player for the project Tülü, led by composer Pierre Redon, including a ten-date tour in Colombia in 2017, a five-date tour in Shanghai in 2019 and a tour in Philadelphia in 2021; including musician from the project Early spring horses from Vincent Stockholm. She created solo for nyckelharpa, double bass and looper solo in 2017. Her second album solo will be released in 2020-2021.
Ingrid Obled experiments with music and sound in various forms, free from conventional frameworks, using multiphonic or acoustic sound diffusion, installations and live concerts in both traditional and atypical settings (forests, private homes, etc).
Her installation creations come from sound recordings: she collects a melting pot of sounds and since 2011, she has been using spoken voices from interviews, opening a new dimension to her composition: words and their meanings as musical substance.
She creates parallel spaces where reference points like place and time give way to a more poetic and intimate universe; a communion, a timeless experience.
Deep and humanistic creations on the edge of musical anthropology.
