THE MUSIC & PROJECTS
Kammerer’s music is a fusion of Nordic and Celtic folk soundscapes, with a distinctive cinematic and symphonic character to it. Together with her hypnotic and sonorous voice she draws the listener into a universe, which moves from tales of human nature to stories about folklore, myth and legend.

At times quiet and storytelling, inviting her audience to contemplate and immerse themselves in the music. At times picturesque and grandiose, creating a magical journey through tales and time.

On top of being a composer and singer, Kammerer is a Musicologist who works with curating cultural heritage through music and performance. Specializing in the Viking Age.

Working in the intersection between history, culture and music also lead her to developing award-nominated and highly recommended musical, whisky experience “Whisky and Witches”.

ACADEMIC BACKGROUND


Music and folk music have always been part of my life. In High School I majored in Music and Drama, and afterwards continued down this path, when I took an intensive 6-month course at The School for Music and Theater in Toftlund, Denmark. I went on to do a BA in Musicology and Cross-Cultural Studies and then a Master of Arts in Culture and Communications from Copenhagen University. In my masters I specialized in Living History and in the discussion, portrayal and performance of cultural and collective identity in different genres of music.Since then, I have done courses in Assertive Communication and Personal Leadership, have studied the ancient technique of Kulning (Nordic Herd Calling) and have studied Music Production at MPW (Music Production for Women, London).

In 2022-2023 I finished a course in Music Production, Management and PR called “Master Your Music” at MPW.

As a composer in Jotunger (formerly Gjaldulei), Christine Kammerer studies ancient musical structures and searches through the sagas and the cultural history of the Viking Age, to create new compositions. Composing on her lyre (a replica of the one found in the Sutton Hoo excavation) she marries prehistoric soundscapes, with Nordic and Celtic folk tonalities. Her approach to composing is experimental and rooted in music archeology, music history and cultural history.
