Together we will compose a 10-15 minute piece for kitchen utensils. Performance will be Friday at 17.00 at Tvibit. I am thrilled and exited to spend time with the group and create something together.
Proud and happy to be part of this three leafed clover together with Charlotte Bendiks and Anette Tunheim Jakobsen, That what was a musical stunt at the Arctic Pride-festival in the Autumn, turned out to become an intense meeting. We team up again at the Arctic Arts Festival. More beats, more songs and much, much love to pass around!
Tomorrow starts the journey that I have been dreaming of! I am on my way to Japan with my contemporary Jazz band called Tromsø Kunstforsyning. We will tour the country for 10 days, starting 29. ending 23. this september. The tour is a collaboration with Sizzle Othaka - Japanese singer and children television star host. Cannot wait to hit the stage together with cellist Bernt Simen Lund and Tromboneplayer Øystein Blix! This tours rig is a standard industrial Jazz kit, supported with amplified African Kalimba ( this time I go crazy with pedal FX on my Kalimba) and a noise station called Kunst i Kit (homemade and really moody box with knobs)
Will try to update sight with pictures! Until then; check out Frosts new album!http://www.myspace.com/aggiepeterson Fun times in Tromsø 4-eva!
Metropolis Silent Movie Russian Tour is over! Wasn't able to update my website as we went. But we did Moscow, Petrozavodsk and Arkhangelsk. All shows were sold out. We travelled long distances, on badly maintained roads for up to 26 hours. Russia is just huge. ( the country reassembles some of the conditions found in some African countries)
Metropolis Crew had a wonderful time, the shows all went well and the crowd was full of ovations! Thanks to Tromsø International Film Festival, Cleaning Women, Gudmund Østgård and Ivan Afanasiev for 7 days of wonder!
Tonight I will do a show at Driv with local industrial Jazz trio ; Dripp! Thanks for following, and please leave feedfacks! N
