Borealis 2011

If you are not too far from Bergen 22 - 26 March, please note that the  Borealis 2011 festival is happening at that time. Borealis is a festival dedicated to contemporary music, noise and sound art, and the theme of the year is "tripping"! The organizers tell us that tripping is also something you may do without chemical substances, so they will travel to Odda for one day to prove it! Far out!

The program was released yesterday (25 February) at one of the festival´s "satelite events", the exhibition "Reading Dante III" by  Joan Jonas who also gave a lecture before the exhibition opening.

Please check out the  program yourselves, but let me point you towards sax man Kjetil Møster, who will play at another satelite event 2 March, Espen Sommer Eide (Pohonophani) will play with Pierre Bastien and Tanya Orning will play a new piece for cello by Maja Ratkje.
