Tróndur Bogason Hansen

Tróndur Bogason Hansen

The music of Tróndur Bogason Hansen (1976) has a distinctive and ghostlike character – filled with temperament and primal force.
His music contains a dramaturgy in which the use of spatial and visual aspects often play a dominant role, and where the music creates an absurd theaterlike world of great contrasts.
He has a wide compositional span which ranges from the small choir miniature to complex works of various instrumentations, he has won several 1. prizes in composition competitions and his music has been performed by wide selection of Faroese and international performers around the world.
In recent years he has also arranged for a number of folk/pop/rock artists including Hanus Johansen and Teitur.
