Composer and Educator
Thomas Djønne was born in Sandnes, Norway in 1997. He attended the Grieg Academy, University of Bergen in Bergen as an undergraduate student from 2017 to 2021 under the supervision of professor Dániel Péter Biró and professor Juliana Hodkinson. He is currently residing in Glasgow, Scotland where he is studying for his Masters degree at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland with professor Stuart MacRae.
Djønne has written music for chamber ensembles, opera and solo performances, and has worked with ensembles such as the Bit20 Ensemble, Sjøforsvarets Musikkkorps, GAIA and the Hebrides Ensemble. His music has been described as busy and complex, with expressive melodies and shifting time signatures in a soundscape combining traditional and modern aesthetics.
In 2022 Djønne was awarded Sandnes' Culture Scholarship, and received funding from UNG i Kor to write a new work for the Norwegian youth choir Sandnes Kulturskolekor VIVA. The piece was premiered in December 2022.
