Band practice in Trondheim

Just came home from the second day of band practice with Ola and Kyrre! We're preparing for the gig at the PSTEREO festival here in Trondheim tomorrow. We're very excited about playing together again. This time we have been able to work more focused on developing our sound. Think we've been able to give each song more of an identity and I have a feeling that we are taking step or two in the right direction. I really hope so at least! Ola and Kyrre are two wonderful musicians and I am so very grateful to be able to work with them!

We're playing tomorrow at PSTEREO at 5pm. I'll also play a solo set at Vår Frues kirke at 8 pm! I sure can have the cake and eat it too...Hope to see you!

The Öya festival in Oslo is soon over. I was lucky enough to play at the club day on tuesday, before I had to return to wonderful copenhagen. Playing with Ola and Kyrre at Gamla was a lot of fun. Think we had a good energy on stage and there was something looking like a crowd as well! After the gig we went to John Dee to see the Crystal Stilts. They put on a quite good show i think! The night ended at Internationalen with friends. Nice! And that was my Öya festival, really. Had to go back to Copenhagen on wednesday. Work work! Next week is Pstereo in Trondheim! Hope to see you there!

By the way: You can read the Stina Stjern interview at Nö Music here. Enjoy!

New stuff!

Using my summer days inside a dirty rehearsal room on Refshalen to write some new Stina Stjern stuff. I'm also busy writing music for my upcoming dance performance called "LITTLE SISTER". It's a contemporary dance performance where the music will be played by an orchestra containing of 12 kids plying the violin and some other stuff. I've had to learn how to play the violin too, the last couple of months. A lot of fun for me, but maybe not too much fun for my rehearsal neighbors!

My Horizons

I've had a great summer so far. Was lucky enough to get 5 days off! Spent them at my Family's summer house at Kiran in Sør-Trøndelag, Norway. I really needed some time to knit, read and do summer stuff. Here are a few Horizons for you guys to enjoy. (Imagine some fresh air and the wind in you hair to go with it.)
