During her career as a performing accordionist, she gradually became more dedicated to composing. She has been studying classical music at The Norwegian Academy of Music in Oslo and has made a living as a touring musician within classical music, folk/trad music and music for theatre since 2002. In 2017, she finally released the album, “Hildersyn”, containing her own music composed for her ten piece folk-classical-jazz ensemble, “Ti på Taket”. That same year she also decided to apply for the one-year study in film music composition in Inland Norway, Lillehammer, by professor Halldor Krogh. There she scored her first three short films, and got the opportunity to write music for The National Radio Orchestra and for Trondheim Symphony Orchestra. In 2019 she scored music for EINAR, a documentary series directed by Erling Borgen for The Norwegian Bradcasting Corporation (NRK).
Tillung´s knowledge within traditional music from many parts of the world, combined with her education within classical education, makes her a composer that stands out. She is also influenced by other genres, such as jazz and pop/rock, and is experimental due to electronic sound designs.
