music for Alpaca Ensemble
Alpaca has commissioned a new piece! This time I'll write for soprano and the trio, in the context of the piece "Seven Poems" by Shostakovich. Alpaca Ensemble is Sigrid Elisabeth Stang, Marianne Baudouin Lie and Else Bø. The piece will be developed together with the musicians during several workshops.
The piece will be premiered in October 2019.
music for storytelling-opera
A new genre is invented! Together with storyteller Tormod Fuglestad we have created a new thing. Storytelling and music combined.
In 2018 we had premiere on a performance on the story of the spanish saint John of the Cross. We will continue with several performances during 2019.
music for silent movies: Live foley
Together with the silent movie pianist Kjetil Schjander Luhr, I'm making music and live foley for several silent movies by Buster Keaton, Georges Méliès, Roald Amundsen and the Lumière brothers. Silent movie concerts have been held at Cinemateket in Oslo, both for school kids (Den kulturelle skolesekken) and others, since 2015.
VokalCollage is my own solo project. Here I do live electronics with vocals and different objects and instruments. I do both improvisation and some of my own written works.
Shhht! is a duo I have together with Gyrid Nordal Kaldestad. We do live-electronics with vocal and different objects and instruments. We have played several times at 300 Acting Spaces, at Sound of Mu in Oslo, and at Bidrobon Biermannsgården in Oslo.
Ludo is a vocal-duo I have together with Gabrielle Sørensen. We do acoustic vocal improvisation. We have done site-specific concerts around Oslo city (many times at Nationaltheatret Train Station), and we have performed at Søndagsmarkedet Blå in Oslo, Bidrobon Biermannsgården in Oslo, Oslo Kulturnatt, and together with Stemmeklang in Emanuel Vigeland's mausoleum in Oslo.
