SØS Gunver Ryberg is a Danish composer and sound artist working in electronic music.

Her characteristic style is recognized for challenging your state of consciousness by transformative music experiences with insistent rhythms, combined with a meticulous exploration of textures and timbres. Raw sounds created from synthesis and processed field recordings are framed by symphonic forms and create a unique expressivity.

She’s quickly become known for delivering music with an undeniable ‘live’ quality and uncompromising intensity. In Berlin she has performed at the Atonal Festival, Boiler Room and Tresor club. She performs in a variety of unconventional spaces and exhibits sound installations, and has been invited to cities including Rio de Janerio, New York, Skt. Petersburg, Istanbul etc. She has proved to be an artist capable of flipping between deep dives into sound art and industrial rhythms and techno.
