Christian Fennesz and Thomas Strønen
Yesterday I went to a duo concert with Christian Fennesz (guitar, laptop, electronics) and Thomas Strønen (drums, electronics) at the Bergen Jazzforum. I have seen Strønen in several bands, but know Fennesz mainly from his beautiful "Black Sea" album. These guys worked out a very good show, with a mix of ambient floating music and more rocking, loud stuff. The house was not packed, but after one long set we managed to get one extra. To be honest they just as well had to play, because the door to their backstage room was closed. Way to do it!
