nodio five-aside 2008, originally uploaded by hc gilje.

the last few months have been packed with lab work and a few public appearances.
I made a 5-channel nodio installation as part of a group show at Visningsrommet USF in Bergen, trying to develop further the idea of composing a circular audiovisual composition.
A few more images can be found here.

HKmark1 was part of a program curated by Per Platou, shown at the FESTIVAL INTERNATIONAL DE FILM ET VIDEO DE CREATION in Beirut, Lebanon. The day after the screening the rest of the festival was cancelled due to the violence in Beirut.

The queen is the supreme power of the realm, the piece commissioned by ZKM and Musikfabrik in 2007, was performed at this years Moers festival in Germany, on may 9th. The Moers festival looks like any summer rock festival, with a camping ground, people in a good mood (for various reasons), a wide selection of temporary tatoos, hair extensions, falafels etc. What is different is that it is a jazz/impro festival (for instance John Zorn was playing later the same evening), and the main venue is a huge circus tent. It was also a first for this festival to present a contemporary music ensemble like Musikfabrik.
