Jan Bang & Erik Honoré



This year, it is exactly 30 years since Jan Bang and Erik Honoré played their very first concert together. Novelist Karl Ove Knausgård, then a young journalist in local newspaper Fædrelandsvennen, wrote: «One cannot help bringing out the big superlatives after experiencing The Well’s debut concert last night.»

 

Since then, Punkt’s artistic directors have collaborated on a number of projects. Their duo releases include the albums «Uncommon Deities» on David Sylvian’s label Samadhisound, «Birth Wish» with Christian Wallumrød and Arve Henriksen, «Punkt Live Remixes vol. 1» with Jon Hassell and Sidsel Endresen, and «Crime Scenes». Bang and Honoré have produced three albums for Arve Henriksen, contributed to albums by David Sylvian, Nils Petter Molvær, Eivind Aarset, Unni Wilhelmsen and other artists, and composed film scores and music for audiovisual installations.

 

Live, they have toured extensively with artists like Sidsel Endresen, Arve Henriksen and Nils Petter Molvær, and brought the Punkt concept to more than 20 European cities, Asia and Canada.

 

At Punkt 17, Bang and Honoré will live remix Daniel Lanois together with Audun Kleive and Eivind Aarset, the Sidsel Endresen / David Toop concert, and contribute to Arve Henriksen’s «Towards Language» concert.
