an old saying that music is sending you places, great music to very
special ones. We’re all time travellers when it comes to deeper listening.
Nevertheless dejavues and old ways are all around us. Call it postmodernism.
Distant decades even ring a bell when you’re listening to the most recent hot
or cool stuff. But if we do follow our desire lines, we’re not trapped in the
advertising of the extraordinary and canonical – we’re back on „boogie street"
(from downtown to the wilderness). Our memory may easily skip from nostalgia to
disturbance, from telling old stories to simply changing the stories. What has
all been fixed in history books (or the comfort zones of your mind), is losing
its power, becomes purely academical. In this slightly hypnotic lecture (beware
of a trained psychologist and music journalist in a rather dark room!), a
genre-defying collection of broadly Norwegian and British music spanning
several decades will be placed in different settings and tales, from desolate
areas at the Northern coast of Scotland to the fully air-conditioned studios at
the RSI, Lugano.
