Borealis Day 5 The End
Here are some highlights from the last evening of The Borealis Festival.
Espen Sommer Eide from Alog has made his own music box (barrel organ) called Slåttberg from old Tandberg speakers. He uses this to play folk music, and it works just fine. Eide walked the whole venue, showing off the Slåttberg, and it was damned cool!
More folk music was on the way. Gamaltnymalt played Friday at the noise evening too, but here people gave them some attention! Nice trio, with good folky attitude, telling us about the music and the famous old players behind it.
Then came Erik Skodvin as Svarte Greiner (meaning "Black Branches"). The venue was quite dark, and we where flooded by spooky ambient made by fiddle, guitar and electronics. Nice! On MySpace Skodvin tells us he's inspired by David Lynch. I just knew it!
