Katinka Fogh Vindelev is a Danish classically trained soprano, performer and composer.
Katinka’s work is grounded in an extensive voice training, a primary source for exploring new hybrids of compositional and performative territories.
Working within the scene of contemporary classical music she recently sang at The Royal Danish Theatre in Copenhagen premiering the new chamber opera ‘Liebestod – an opera:tion‘ with music by the Swedish composers Sofia Jernberg and Henrik Strindberg and a libretto by multilinguist Cia Rinne!
Katinka’s voice composition, Moonologue, was created in collaboration with visual artist Marie Kølbæk Iversen and features counter tenor Morten Grove Frandsen and Vindelev herself. It was a commission from LOUISIANA – Museum of Modern Art and was performed at The Moon exhibition there. Subsequently Moonologue was released on the Danish label Antipyrine.
Katinka is a member of We like We a Danish music and sound collective, who recently released their third full length album Time is Local on the Berlin-based label Sonic Pieces. Expanding their inspiration and influence from the classical roots, We like We creates music that travels beyond the grid of genres. During Summer 2019 We like We premiered a new chamber opera, Myte om Mørke with Libretto by Alexandra Moltke Johansen, at Copenhagen Operafestival produced by Nordic Opera!
During 2017 Katinka had her first solo exhibition My voice is your voice, portraying the human voice through three installations, all of which have alienation as a thematic focal point.
Katinka works closely with artist and composer Jacob Kirkegaard. Since 2016 Katinka and Jacob have performed their collaborative performance piece Eustachia for two voices at Louisiana Museum, ARoS Kunstmuseum and Fridman Gallery in NYC.
She has toured with the Danish band Efterklang, performed as a soloist in Karsten Fundal‘s audiovisual orchestra work ‘Liquid Rooms’ with Odense Symphony Orchestra and appears on number of acclaimed film soundtracks, latest A Ghost Story by American composer Daniel Hart.
