Music travels 9000 km
For the opening of the festival this year Borealis and elnicho in Mexico City merge to create one big musical adventure! It’s been in the making for years and finally we can see the result of sharing ideas, musicians and resources across the Atlantic. Members of the Mexican new music ensemble Liminar are coming to play, and the local BIT20 Ensemble will perform work by Øyvind Torvund, Marisol Jiménes and Marcelo Toledo. It all happens in the converted Sardine Factory, USF Verftet, that will be filled with the music and taste of Mexico! The evening ends in a world premiere of Jenny Berger Myhre and Manuela De Laborde’s audio visual ghost story from Mexico City!
