Borealis Listening Club #40

Welcome to an exclusive Spring edition of Borealis Listening Club! 

CHANGE: Susie Ibarra will not be able to make it to Bergen after all due to illness. But we are so happy to announce that artist, composer and drummer Andreas Kühne is in town and will joining as our guest!

Andreas is based in Amsterdam and creates electroacoustic music, collaborative audiovisual performances and interactive installations. He has moved away from the drumset as his sole instrument of expression by focusing on ‘field improvisation’.

Andreas will be sharing some tunes and we’ll also serving Bergen’s best ice cream from taste experts Hallaisen! All you adventurous listeners will get to taste a cold yet warm Chocolate Chilli, and a punchy yet polite Soy Sauce Caramel ice cream.

Borealis lasts until May…
