Ane Marthe Sørlien Holen is a Norwegian percussionist, one-woman-band, writer and composer. She is constantly challenging herself as an artist, seeking to extend herself as a musician/percussionist, finding new sounds, new ways of expressing herself, and including voice and body as natural parts of her instrument.
Ane Marthe writes both text and music, and her compositions usually combines these elements.
Her texts has been published by Minerva and Ballade, but most of them are still lying in her desk drawer.
Main projects right now: Touring Europe and the US with the show Chambre Noire, working with Pinquins and Ensemble neoN, composing a new piece for Ensemble neoN (to be premiered 23rd of January 2019), and collaboration projects with Gunhild Mathea Olaussen, Henrik Hellstenius, Ingebjørg Loe Bjørnstad, Stine Sørlie and Guro Skumsnes Moe.
