Two strong artistic voices appear on this evening's programme.
Outspoken feminist artist Jenny Hval will make an appearance in the wake of a sobering experience of touring in the USA during the election. Her CTM performance created together with experimental duo Skrap will expand from her recent “Blood Bitch” album to respond to the prevalence of impulsive, hype-fed and emotion-driven politics there and elsewhere.
Stine Janvin Motland will open the evening with “Fake Synthetic Music,” using her voice to imitate melodic synthesizer sequences of consistent, unrelenting intensity.
Norwegian artist and writer Jenny Hval has been developing her distinct take on intimate, investigative sound since the release of her debut album on Rune Grammofon in 2006. Her last three solo albums, 2013's Innocence Is Kinky, 2015’s Apocalypse, girl (her debut for Sacred Bones) and 2016’s Blood Bitch have all received widespread international acclaim.
Stavanger-born, Berlin-based vocalist Stine Janvin Motland works with experimental music, sound and audiovisual performance. Through a diverse range of projects and collaborations (In Labour, The Subjective Frequency Transducer, Native Instrument, Stine II), she explores and challenges the physical features of the voice, the acoustics of her external/internal surroundings and new performance strategies.
