Gisle Martens Meyer is a Norwegian media artist. His work for stage, screen and new media is closely integrated with – and dealing with the challenges of – new technology, social media and digital culture. Questions are raised in a surreal, quirky and playful aesthetic, where apparent naive escapism glides on the surface of serious, contemporary undercurrents.
GMM started out as a touring artist with his pop-electronica project Ugress in the early 2000s. The debut album and was nominated for best new-comer at the Norwegian National Music Awards, followed by years of extensive European touring. The music is frequently licensed to film, TV and video games, which developed a natural path towards directly composing and producing for moving images and live stage.
GMM now works as a performing artist and composer for film, TV, video games and contemporary stage. His current main focus is on commissioned works for contemporary scene, new live scores for silent film classics in cinemas and creating music videos live on club, theatre and cinema stages.
