Susanne Xin is a Norwegian-Vietnamese artist, pianist and music educator. Her compositions are often cross disciplinary, and are based on a spesific theme or method. At the moment, her artistic journey has turned her gaze inwards, and she often uses her many identities as an entry point into various preliminary projects:
“I am from a minority background and I’m a woman, I’m queer and my parents are refugees from the Vietnam War. There is a lot of material coming from these perspectives, and I find it incredibly exciting to set tones to these memories and stories in various artistic forms ”.
Susanne is currently a member of TekstLab’s Incubator programme and Borealis Ung Komponist (young composers). She also has a Bachelor’s Degree in Music performance and pedagogy with piano as her main instrument from the Norwegian Academy of Music, and is currently studying medicine at the University of Oslo.
