The whole of last week was spent at Henie Onstad Kunstsenter, right outside Oslo, following an invitation to "do something special" in their studio room, to be presented to the public at the weekend. We wish to take a moment to thank HOK for their invitation and unbelievable generosity in making this experiment come alive, and, of course, all the people who came out to witness – some even traveling from afar.
Our sincerest thanks to Birk Nygaard – he was the one with the wild idea of us in a multidimensional "organic cube" in the middle of the room with projectors on four sides and simultaneous lasers and smoke. Asbjørn Ebbesvik, who pulled off 360° PA coverage via 8 x stereo positions. K-array audio system was sponsored kind courtesy of Espen Siverts and First Audio. Without you guys, this thing would not have been.
Kristoffer Kinden Endresen, Lars Mørch Finborud, Kenneth Alme, Pablo Castro, Live Hilton, Tommy Høvik and Dorthe Håker at HOK. Terje Bjordal, for driving tons. Are Kleivan/Metric Design's beautifully designed silkscreen with gold foil finish – expertly printed by Drid Machine – should also be mentioned. Thank you guys, immensely.
Below are two clips from the Sunday seance captured by André Løyning. More documentation of this concert/installation will likely surface, in due time.
Meanwhile, it’s back to Caesar Live. See you next month Scandinavia: Stockholm, Helsinki, Bergen.
