Ellen Arkbro (b. 1990, Stockholm) is a composer and sound-artist primarily working with intervallic harmony in just intonation. Her work includes long duration compositions for ensembles as well as electronic sound environments in the form of installations and live- performances, employing both traditional acoustic instruments as well as digital algorithmic sound synthesis. Most recently, Arkbro released for organ and brass on Subtext Recordings, a set of recordings of her compositions in just intonation for renaissance organ, horn, trombone and microtonal tuba.
