It´s festival time in Bergen again, this time it´s the Phonofestivalen . Yesterday I (and a just few others) attended a double concert with Ine & Peder and Mathisen/Høyer/Larsson.
Ine & Peder is Ine Hoem (vocal) and Peder Simonsen (tuba). They played some home made stuff, and several beautiful covers (a o Magnet) spiced with some electronic noise. Someone filmed their last tune, "The Model" by Kraftwerk, a quite fitting choice for a festival that focus on robots.
Mathisen/Høyer/Larsson are the two Norwegians Jørgen Mathisen (saxophone) and Ola Høyer (bass) and Swede drummer Andreas Hiroui Arsson. According to the program they would play some powerful, energetic and provoking music, but they settled for one of the most quiet (and short) concerts I have been to. I liked that! It does not hurt to concentrate, and you had to do that sometimes, to hear the music at all!
