Elisabeth Holmertz is a classically trained soprano who began singing so-called ”early music” in the beginning of the 90’s and contemporary music in the end
of the same decade and has, since then, distinguished herself as one of Scandinavia’s boldest interpreters in both fields. She always strives to find her own voice in whatever music she's
She mixes genres, styles and expressions; one day lute songs, the other day pop music, the third day avantgarde performance and experimental opera, the fourth day maybe an oratorium.
She's has over the years performed as soloist with many ensembles and orchestras such as Cikada, Concerto Copenhagen, The Norwegian Radio Orchestra, The Norwegian Orchestra, The Danish chamber
orchestra in addition to Odd Size and Utomjordiska.
Her home address is in Oslo, but Elisabeth feels equally at home in Gothenburg, Copenhagen and the rest of the world.
Over the past ten years Fredrik Bock has worked as lutenist and guitarist while based in Copenhagen and Malmö. Taking his inspiration from the music of the Renaissance and Baroque, Fredrik plays a number of the many instruments of the guitar and lute family, both as soloist and together with established soloists, ensembles, and orchestras. Fredrik's natural curiosity and interest in other genres often lead to musical encounters off the beaten track: one day at a folk song festival, the next with pub musicians, and now and then contemporary classical music. Fredrik performs regularly with some of Europe's leading ensembles and orchestras, including Barokksolistene, Concerto Copenhagen, Theatre of Voices, Atalante and The Finnish Baroque Orchestra. Fredrik is one of few lutenists to become a specialist on Baroque guitar, and his uncompromising pursuit of artistic excellence has garnered him a number of grants and prizes. He has moreover contributed to a good many radio and television recordings, and CD and DVD productions. Fredriks first solo recording “Music for a Queen”with music by Michelangelo Bartolotti was released in 2014.
Ingrid Andersson studied cello at the Academy of Music and Drama in Gothenburg, and continued to explore early music and baroque cello with Stefano Veggetti at the Conservatorio dall'Abaco in Verona where she fell helplessly in love with gut strings and the art of continuo playing. The past ten years she has been spending most of her time concentrating in the field of early music, working with orchestras and ensembles such as Ensemble Arden, Karlsson Barock, Göteborg Baroque and Utomjordiska Barockorkestern. Ingrid is one of the founding members of Karlsson Barock and Ensemble Odd Size.

He is a steady member of the ensembles Barokksolistene (N), Göteborg Baroque (S), Ensemble Zimmermann (Dk), Karlsson Barock (S) and of course Odd Size and Utomjordiska.
