Said about Ylva Nyberg Bentancor:

” Now I jump over to another subject and a tips of radio – about sound art.

Because my god, the meeting with Ylva Nyberg Bentancor in ”Musikmagasinet Klang”

in P2 last Sunday, and her recorded voices, horses, cars and rain in Mongolia

made me sit like in trance in front of the radio.”

Niklas Wahllöf, Radio and TV- chronicle Dagens Nyheter 13 april 2010

 

” The music of Ylva Nyberg surprises when the territory of contemporary music where stretched in a very

attractive way. Her music are clear, somethimes very simple with it’s features of tango, klezmer and balkan music.

Among the work there are several examples of Nybergs sense for telling a drama.”
