This coming Friday the 4th I’ll be heading to Kristiansand and the Punkt Festival to do a live remix of Parisian quartet Vegan Dallas, and on Saturday 5th I’ll be back in Tromsø for the opening of the exhibition “Nothing will grow together because nothing belongs together” – which takes place inside an amazing place – the former NATO submarine base of Olavsvern. The project is curated by the brilliant Tromsø artspace Kurant, and I’ll be participating with my new piece “The Fear Machine”. After the exhibition opening, the Insomnia Festival is putting on a party in a warehouse right outside the base, where I will also be doing a live set.
I did a DJ set for Oslo Clubcast a couple of weeks ago. It was a lazy afternoon in the sun, so pretty laid back stuff. Check it out in the player above.
I’ll be heading to Oslo for a DJ set at Dattera til Hagen this Friday the 7th of August, followed by another DJ gig at Kulturhuset on Saturday 8th. On Sunday the 9th I’ve been invited to co-present Aphex Twin’s “Selected Ambient Works 85-92” at Classic Album Sundays‘ Oslo event. Then, a couple of weeks later, on Friday the 21st, I’ll be back in Oslo to play a live gig at the Sommerøya festival alongside Truls & Robin plus more. And finally the weekend after that, on Saturday the 29th, I’m teaming up with Bjørn Torske and Doc L Junior for an exclusive 3 hour live/dj jam at our UFO-Lounge at Rakettnatt‘s afterparty in Tromsø. Hope to see you at one or more of the events.
“Repeat: Then: Repeat” – the piece I did for Austrian festival Musikprotokoll‘s merry-go-round installation in Graz back in October 2014, has now been picked up by Höhenrausch, which is another Austrian festival taking place in Linz between May 29 and October 18. If you are passing by Linz this summer, and fancy a carousel ride accompagnied by a series of exclusively commissioned musical works, then make your way to the City’s Kulturquartier during your stay. More info here.
You can now stream a recording of my live remix of Erik Honoré’s “Heliographs” project in the player below. The performance was part of Punkt Festival’s European tour, and recorded at La Dynamo in Paris on April 13th 2015.
I’m heading to Prague on April 8th to do a live remix of Nils Petter Molvær, Hamid Drake, Eivind Aarset and Jan Bang in connection to Punkt Festival‘s series of events in Europe this spring. There will also be two similar events in Paris on the 13th and 14th of April. On the first of these two I will do a live remix of Erik Honoré’s “Heliographs” project featuring Nils Petter Molvær, Eivind Aarset and Ingar Zach, and on the second I will remix France’s own Magnetic Ensemble. Inbetween these dates I will head to Bergen to DJ at Landmark Bergen Kunsthall, where Espen Sommer Eide launces his “Material Vision – Silent Reading” project, followed by a live performance by Are Mokkelbost.
I’ll be heading to London for a couple of gigs towards the middle of this month. First up is a DJ set back to back with DJ Ben Osborne at Big Chill House on Saturday 14/3. Then, on Monday 16/3, we’ll be rigging our “Boom Room” at Village Underground as part of London’s Convergence Festival. This is an event where we’re putting the focus on sound effects in electronic music by rigging an online link to an abolished air-base on the west coast to use as a live reverb unit. This is a collaboration with Noise of Art, and you can read more about it here. I’ve put together a mixtape ahead of the Boom Room gig which you can stream in the player above.
