This spring and summer I´ve been busy composing the music for the piece NIGHT TRIPPER .
Night Tripper draws from the idea of nature as animistic, where lingering too long at the crossroads can turn true believers into ‘divine horsemen’. Beginning at twilight and leading into the night, Night Tripper is a walk, a concert, a ritual and social event where your companions include performers, peculiar instruments, an invisible choir and potent spirits. Here´s a small teaser, more information will come soon…
Night Tripper a collaboration between choreographer Ingri Fiksdal, scenographer Signe Becker and me. The piece opened in in June in Vienna as part of the Up To Nature festival an the Wiener Festwochen, and will be touring more dates in Bristol, UK - In Between Time festival; Oslo, Norway – produced by Black Box Theatre, Trondheim, Norway, at AvantGarden, and Kuopio, Finland, at the ANTI festival.

British radio – Nordorama
An extra-special episode dedicated to Norwegian record label Rune Grammofon. After their joint debut UK gig, HB chats to Jenny Hval (a.k.a. rockettothesky) and the lead singer of Phaedra, Ingvild Langgård, about their latest work and what they consider essential Nordic listening. With music ranging from contemporary folk fiddle, to a song recorded on a dictaphone and a brain-busting avant garde interpretation of When The Saints Go Marching In, this is one hot potato of a label, and one ear-melting hour of music. Listen here!
