Ylva Bentancor

Born 1967 in Stockholm


Composer and soundartist



After finishing the education at The royal college of Music in Stockholm, Sweden in 2001, Ylva worked as freelance composer mixed with lecturing, editing music magazines etc.

During the years she turned more towards sound art because of a committment to communicate questions about human beings, our role on this earth and what's going on in our societies. She developed her brand based on instruments that plays on the sounds of the reality to tell stories.

The first project with Gustavo was When People Gather, 2012 (new version 2020) and can be listened to on the newly released CD Silhouetted against the sun, Tentakel Förlag 2020.
