Sol Ey

Sól Ey (Sóley Sigurjónsdóttir, 1996) is an Icelandic composer, performer, and media artist based in The Netherlands.

By exploring sound as a multisensorial phenomenon, Sól Ey creates performances and installations that explore tactile, spatial, and social relationships. The objective is to create a sensitive and immersive environment where exploration is essential to the concept.

Sól Ey’s works have been presented at Spatial Sound Institute in Budapest, TEMP studio in Lisbon, Concertgebouw in Bruges, Raflost, Reykjavik Art Festival, Dark Music Days in Reykjavik and Today’s Art Festival, Rewire Festival, Gaudeamus Festival and Dag in de Branding in The Netherlands. Furthermore, she has worked with artists and collectives such as Heiner Goebbels, Nederlands Dans Theater (NDT) and Maze Ensemble, and been an artist-in-residence at the Spatial Sound Institute (Budapest 2018) and iii (The Hague 2021). In 2021, she obtained a bachelor degree in composition and a diploma from the Institute of Sonology at the Royal Conservatoire The Hague.

Parallel to her artistic work, Sól Ey is active as a curator and event organiser. She is founder of RASK, a collective of young Icelandic artists working in the intersection of art and technology, a curator for the Icelandic electronic art festival Raflost, and a board member of the Icelandic delegation of Ung Nordisk Musik, a festival for young Nordic composers. Since 2020, she is a member of The Hague-based artist collective Trixie.
