Sól Ey (Sóley Sigurjónsdóttir, 1996) is an Icelandic sound artist, instrument developer, and performer based in The Netherlands. In her work, sound is often explored as a tangible or architectonic phenomenon. Its relation with space is in focus, resulting in installations and performances that are often site-specific or actively involve the audience. In her practice, technology is utilized to realize multisensory concepts and connect different mediums. Essentially, curiosity, collaboration, and artistic research form the core of her practice. In the past, her work has been presented at 4DSOUND (HU), Raflost (IS), Today’s Art (NL), Spektrum (DE) and West Den Haag (NL).
Parallel to her artistic work, Sól Ey is active as a curator and event-manager. She is founder of RASK, a collective of young Icelandic artists working in the intersection of art and technology, co-founder of improvisation series Zwerm, and a board member of the Icelandic section of Ung Nordisk Musik, a festival for young Nordic composers. She is currently studying composition and Sonology at the Royal Conservatoire of The Hague.
