Bjørk-Guinevere Kinsella Eide (born 1995) is a pianist, conductor, vocalist and composer specializing in electroacoustic music. Her artistic process often originates from a feeling, an image or the interaction between colors. She experiences music in a visually inspiring way and lets this unique approach form the basis for her work in composing music. She has experience working in film, including through the Tromsø International Film Festival in 2023.  Additionally, she has also worked in various theater productions and with her solo project "A Hidden Place," where the visual expression in the space is as important as the music. 

Bjørk recently completed studies in live electronics at the Norwegian Academy of Music under the guidance of Koka Nikoladze. She earned her master's degree in classical piano from the Tromsø Conservatory of Music. Her studies at the conservatory also included music technology and singing lessons. She holds a bachelor's degree in orchestral conducting from the Norwegian Academy of Music and Hochschule für Musik "Hanns Eisler" in Berlin.

In 2023, Bjørk composed and performed music for the French silent film "Rien que les Heures" (Nothing but Time), directed by Brazilian director Alberto Cavalcanti in 1926. This work was commissioned by the Tromsø International Film Festival for the silent film days in April 2023. The film concert received excellent feedback and was brought further to  "Mirage" film festival in Oslo, October 2023. This project was a collaboration with synth-pop artist "Elfrida."

In 2022, Bjørk was invited to participate in the mentor programme "Cloud:Exit" hosted by the Insomnia festival and TalentNorway. This included a performance under the festival of 2022 and a collaboration with Tromsø Silent Film Festival in 2023. Bjørk is composing and performing under the stage name Kinsella. Insomnia writes about Bjørk:


​"Bjørk-Guinevere Kinsella Eide is a classically trained pianist from Bodø who has produced magical ambient under the stage name Kinsella. It is not difficult to hear Eide's musicality in the beautiful and exciting soundscape and we are eager to hear what else she can create in the electronic sphere."​

In February 2024, Bjørk was invited to conduct the works of santoor soloist and composer Mirsaeed Hosseiny Panah in Classix Festival, Iasi. She performed the album "I Wish I Were Water" together with Classix Collective (Orchestra) and soloists from the opera. They held the concert at the Palass of Culture.


Bjørks background in conducting includes masterclasses with conductors such as Juanjo Mena, Michael Schønwandt, Vasily Petrenko and Atso Almilla. She's conducted orchestras such as the Berlin Sinfonietta (2016), the Brandenburg State Orchestra Frankfurt (2017), the Arctic Philharmonic (2018) and the Malaga Philharmonic Orchestra (2019). In 2021 she was invited to conduct the ensemble "ARcTic Sustain" at the Festspillene i Nord-Norge. Together they performed the world premieres of works by Mark Adderly, Karstein Brustad and Karin Rehnquist.
