Grieg Viig’s background is from the field of music education, and she has in addition to her employment in higher education worked as a composer and choir conductor. She departs from a background influenced by jazz storytelling, seeking to explore sonic spaces both tight and open, harmonic and dissonant, experimental and conform, delving into how timbre, polyphonic and homogeneous lines can take shape in a continuously evolving soundscape. As a researcher and teacher, she is in particular interested in creative music making, critical music pedagogy approaches, and exploring how digital tools can provide new access points for music education in the 21st century.
