December in Bergen
Just a short report from an old meat factory in Bergen ("Bergen Kjøtt"), that has been turned into one of the coolest (and coldest!) concert venues in town.
On Saturday 1 December, Ny Musikk Bergen (New Music Bergen) and sax man Kjetil Møster´s concert series Action Jazz, invited to a great happening.
We had minimalist, but intense Alog (Espen Sommer Eide and Dag-Are Haugan) with Bergen artist Signe Lidén, a fantastic solo set from violin/fiddle player Nils Økland, fascinating electro-pop by Japanese Hako and a quite exciting new duo with Nils Økland and Helge "Deathprod" Sten! I bet that quite few of you have seen that duo coming along.
Perhaps a bit too much in one evening for an old guy like me, but (being one who loves to pick blueberries) I have to say I´m quite happy to see the berry picker used even when it´s snowing outside!
