There are no age limits to listening, and no age limits to imagination! The Konsertsirkus! returns to the Bergen International Culture Centre, taking over the staircases and performance spaces for interactive, experimental music, and an afternoon of short concerts that the whole family can enjoy. Icelandic composer Thor Magnusson presents his surround sound instrument the Threnoscope, that both he and the audience, however small, can programme live in the concert hall. Danish composer, drummer and singer Anja Jacobsen weaves a world of dreams and polyrhythms telling stories based on texts from Cicero and NASA for a musical space journey. Slovakian sound enthusiast Jonáš Gruska has built an interactive electromagnetic room, where audiences can explore the secret sounds that come out of all sorts of household objects, and even our mobile phones. The BIT20 Ensemble, with a team of young students from the Kringlebotn school in Bergen, will create and perform a new piece composed to mark the closing of the FM radio frequency in Norway. As ever the Konsertsirkus! Kafé will be open serving healthy and intriguing snacks for all ages, there’ll be experimental ice cream from Bergen’s homemade ice cream parlour Hallaisen, and fine chinese tea on offer from Tedragen.
Bring the whole family down to the Konsertsirkus!
