Go wild, go slow

Bagels & Beans, cappuccino time. Back home at midnight after another morning and afternoon of heartfelt encounters with friends and other strangers. From the point of view of conversations, this was my best-ever year at the Punktfestival. It was quite a thing to use a little magic trick to make KLM care for two free seats on the last flight to Kristiansand, on a chaos day at Schiphol, five days ago. A bit of hardihood, haha. Christoph owes me one Gosht Chilli Karahi next year (lam med fersk chilli, purre, paprika og løk i en fyldig delikat kryddersaus (minimum styrke 4)). Yesterday: listening to the re-workings of Miles Davis’ „Rubberband Sessions“ on the first flight (to Amsterdam) – oh, well, let me find a way to write a funny let-down of this album that will probably be the most talked about jazz album of the year (the thing with legends). Talking with S. M., the Russian woman besides me, on experiencing Dostojevski as teenagers (and Arvo Pärt as grown-ups), was much more fascinating – the things tomato juice can get started. Listening to Tinariwen‘s new album on the second flight (to Düsseldorf), another pure joy. At home, I put the just released book by David Toop, „Living With Sound“, on the night board. I will write one more article about Punkt 2019, the lectures curated by David dealing with sound and memory. October will be a good time for that. But now, look at the photo, music from the future, with a primordial vibe, the sound of Hardanger Fiddle maestro Nils Okland in the electric wilderness! Do we have a deal?
