I was lucky enough to be invited to play the Inversia Festival in Murmansk, Northern Russia, back in February. This brilliant festival is only in its second year but has already established itself as an important arena for joining local artists with international ones through workshops, talks and gigs. You can check out their mini-docu in the player above while browsing for the best priced tickets for next year’s festival.
I’m doing a couple of live remixing gigs over the next month. The first one is in on Friday March 16th in Bodø, where I’m sampling the Arctic Philharmonic Orchestra (NOSO) performing “Shaker Loops” by John Adams. The second gig is in Tromsø on April 12th, where violinist Martin Truscott and NOSO are performing the same piece.
I’m thinking of doing some live versions of selected tracks from my back catalogue in addition to the usual improvised stuff at the gig I’m playing at Øyafestivalen in August. Any suggestions for tracks I should play? Check out the playlist above to get you started and drop me a comment on Facebook or Twitter.
This coming weekend we’re performing “EXHALE” at the Laiks Dejot festival in Riga, Latvia. The performance is a collaboration with dance artist Liv Hanne Haugen and installation artist Lawrence Malstaff, and you can view a short video presentation of the project here and read more about the festival here.
This weekend I’m off to Paris for the screening of “Northern Disco Lights” at the Polar Festival, where I’ll be doing a Q&A after the film. Prior to the screening I will be doing a live set at Rinse FM France that will also be streamed through their Facebook page. Skatebård will also be doing a DJ set in the same show, so tune in!
