Ruth Wilhelmine Meyer


RUTH WILHELMINE MEYER PROJECT indicates the multi-vocal voice-expression of the Norwegian singer Ruth Wilhelmine Meyer.

Inspired by ethnic sounds, Norwegian folk music, classical vocal tradition, and extended voice techniques from the avant-garde tradition, Meyer has developed a non-verbal vocal expression within a voice range of more than 6 octaves.

In her Project, she often interacts with instrumentalists and vocalists of different expressions from different musical origins in concerts and scenic performances, films, and sound installations throughout the world.

Through these multi-expressive vocal sounds, she creates soundscapes between the realistic/unrealistic and the expected/unexpected, letting the sound itself be the storyteller.
