Qarin Wikström


Qarin Wikström has been an active part of the blossoming avantgarde - and experimental music scenes in Copenhagen for over a decade, having released 17 albums so far, as main composer or co-writer, including recordings with diverse projects such as Q (solo project), Kostcirkeln, Shitney, Sekten, Orbit Stern & Q and reBell, to mention a few.

With a background in a broad spectrum of genres as classical chamber music, pop, jazz, Swedish folklore and freely improvised music, Qarin’s musical vision comes through as a confession to all of it, blending the varying influences into a not yet specified genre.

She has been thriving in releasing music via creative formats: in a match box, in a notebook, an album presented in an art/music film, and music for exercise released through a small music player in a headband.

Qarin is a multiple winner and nominee of several Danish Music Awards, and recipient of the prestigious three-year grant from the Danish Arts Council in 2012.
