A small village in Jutland, Denmark was the birthplace and home for Morten as he was growing up. He graduated with a Masters degree in Rhythmic Choir from the Royal Academy of Music in Aalborg and has sung and worked with a variety of choirs in Denmark and beyond.
Before he became a member of The Real Group in 2010 he was a member of Vox11, Postyr Project and VoxNorth, all Danish groups exploring new directions in a cappella performance. This helped to develop his understanding of some of the technical aspects of capturing and delivering a cappella performances. As a result, he brought with him some ideas of new dimensions for The Real Group’s performances, such as the incorporation of a loop-station to assemble multilayer rhythmic accompaniments. Morten has also become heavily involved in the recording and mixing process in The Real Group’s own studio and has contributed new songs and arrangements to their repertoire.
