A new chance to see the acclaimed musicians behind the project Krympende Klode, which was created at Wrap as a commission for Borealis Festival 2020.


These two Bergen-based musicians explore the interplay between analog synthesizers and stringed instruments, inspired by everything from modular synthesizers and tape loops, to the experiments of American instrument builder Harry Partch and one of the pioneers within electronic music, Raymond scott. The result of these influences is a new music created in a collision between voltage-controlled oscillations and string vibrations!


Krympende Klode was performed to live visuals by Ana Jorge. Charlotte Myrbråten

wrote about the concert in Klasekampen’s Musikkmagasinet that “The music and the visual are thus born into a particularly successful whole”.
