Audioglimt invites artists from various musical backgrounds and genres to create their own soundtrack which can be performed live to a given film. It's a challenge to do this, but the invitation has been taken up by many of Bergens most respected musicians, resulting in a unique series of intimate concerts that surprise, entertain and inspire!
As a concept, Audioglimt focuses on the art of creating music for film, rather than on exploring particular genres of film or music. Until now, artists have chosen their own films, and these events have spanned everything from percussive jazz set to highlights from 80's NRK, minimalistic noise music set to a sureal edit of Norwegian block-buster, Bølgen, sensitive but contrast-filled soundscapes set to Apollo 17's trip to the moon, atmospheric drone music to Werner Hertzog's Cave of Forgotten Dreams, and new traditional Andean music set to a political documentary.
