Kirstine is a strong, upcoming voice on the scene of new music. With distinctive works where sensuality and physical expression reaches beyond the music, Kirstine mesmerizes her audience through her inciting presence.’
Kitt Johnson, X-act

The most exciting part of the summercourse (Darmstädter Ferienkursen 2018) was presented by the workshop participants. (…) Expectations were high from the outset, with faculty bearing names such as Kubisch or Walshe, but experiences such as those from the young artists Yiran Zhao and Kirstine Lindemann from the composer-performer workshop went beyond even these.’
Juana Zimmermann, Neue Musik Zeitung, July 2018

‘Lindemann’s work is an invitation to draw you into that latent virtual potential inherent in the interaction between beings who mistake themselves for being separate individuals, that place we can occupy and invent together once we drop the defences. It’s an invitation and one that is well worth accepting’
Macon Holt, Passive-Agressive, February 2020


With a special interest in the body and the movement as compositional material Lindemann’s work as an instrumentalist, composer and performer focuses on that space between you and I. As an interpreter as well as in her own works the body and sound form part of an exploration of the limitations and the possibilities of connection posed by the body when it is understood as a musical instrument.

Lindemann has toured in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Spain, Finland, Iceland, South Africa as both an instrumentalist, composer and performer. She studied at the music academies in Helsinki,  Amsterdam and Odense from where she did her advanced post-graduate studies as a physical performer and instrumentalist.

She has been granted the 1st prize in the TUF chamber music competition in Iceland and the Dioraphte Gold Award at Amsterdam Fringe Festival and received numerous grants. Currently she is a part of the Danish Arts Council’s programme, ‘The Young Artistic Elite’ that supports young, Danish artists during the course of two years.

During the summer of 2020 Lindemann is part of the residency programme at Open Stage, Godsbanen in Aarhus while developing the installation and concert programme ‘Between Strings’ commissioned by the quartet ‘Between Feathers’ based in Vienna. The concert will be premiered in 2021 with works by Kirstine Lindemann (composer), Scott Rubin (composer) and Christine Bonansea (choreographer).

Autumn 2020 Kirstine will be composing and performing the music for the theater production ‘Robin Hood’ at Folketeateret in collaboration with Jullie Hjetland and Hans Find Møller.

In 2021 Lindemann will be visiting China with her music theater show, ‘Sonata Land’ as well as Switzerland and Germany with the duo ‘OTHER EYE’ – a collaboration with composer-performer Yiran Zhao.
