BIO

Origin: Norway

Genre: Folktronica

Label: KOSO

Komlava, aka Åse Ava Fredheim is an artist, composer, producer, singer and songwriter. Over the years she's composed music for theatre- and dance performances such as Oxytrain (Katja Schia & Nina Biong), Fall and Parallell (Hammervold-Austinat). She’s collaborated with choreographer Martine Hammervold-Austinat on several occasions. She releases music with the name Ava Freddy, and she's also part of the duo Heim, which continuously explores different genres. Komlava does mix and mastering in addition to performing in different productions. She’s worked with artists like Disaster in the Universe, Maria & the Brymstones, Ida Waaler, Elektrolise and KOSO’s Juno Jensen. A trademark for her work is an organic basis. Through her more experimental productions you find sound material gathered mostly from our surroundings. She adopted these methods while studying music design at Kristiania University College, and they’ve become an essential part of her soundscapes.
