Bergur Anderson is an Icelandic artist, composer and sound-maker based in Rotterdam. His practice is essentially concerned with musical storytelling; the healing aspects of sound and voice; poetic and melodic expression; the agency polyphony has in constructing oral narratives; and the relationship between the singing voice and speaking voice.

He works primarily with sound, performance and installation, fabricating the chimerical and fictional qualities of sound into material, time-based and published works.

Next to his own practice, Bergur collaborates with artists who seek to expand the notion of sound in their practices — as a composer, recordist, sound designer, mixing engineer and performer.
