On Thursday Jens and I played at the Polyføkt festival in Torshov, and it went pretty well. Ill be posting video and sound of our “show” soon. There was many cameras all over the place, (Noise nerds like to document) so I may even be able to do a multi camera edit, we´ll see if the music/recording was really any good!
Heres the poster!
And here are the videos: PART ONE
Our performance was part of an Italian/Norwegian exchange. As such we played in an exhibition space about skiing and winter sports, through the ages. Trento is high in the Italian Austrian mountains, and is surrounded by wonderful mountains.
I had a absolutely fantastic time, and the gig was great! The original plan was that Massimo and I would be backed up by a trio of Trento musicians. Carlo La Manna, Corrado Bungaro and (insert name here). But after having some laptop/keyboard problems, we decided that we would all just play together. And what a great decision. It was a fantastic blend of their ethnic virtuosity and me and Massimos electronic noises.
Massimo played loops and manipulated my videos live, including one with Hilde singing (The Spykkeskjaenhytte film) Carlo La Manna
Fretless Bass Corrado Bungaro
Played Violin, Nyckelharpa, Steeldrum, percussion Giordano Angeli
Saxophones, percussion Mark Francombe
Baritone guitar, electronics
Love this pic
This instrument is called a Nyckelharpa, and originates from Sweden.
