Nordskog



Nordskog is the artist project for Jonas Magnussen, a name already familiar to many as one of Bergen’s most promising young composers. Working with respected musicians like Dai Fujikura, Victoria Johnson, Claudia Cox and Therese Winther, he uses strings in conjunction with electronic processing to create a style never heard before. Improvisation used as a tool together with a strong compositional framework results in music that grips the listener and pulls them into a world all its own.

Nordskog has already created a name for himself with his video art, and has performed improvised live visuals for artists like Eivind Aarset, Nils Petter Molvær, Erik Honoré, Dualistic, /grå, Eple Trio and Kubbi — but the Punkt festival 2018 will be the first time we’ll be able to experience his work in full scale. An audiovisual installation that takes the listener on a journey into their own mind. Like a dream, it invites us to a dance between the ugly and the pure, the intellectual and the emotional, the structured and the chaotic, in a world built of sound and light. A world in which you may discover parts of yourself you never even knew existed…
