Cara Tolmie & Stine Janvin

Stine Janvin and Cara Tolmie will present a new collaborative performance based on their shared experiments with restrictive uses of the repeated and defamiliarised voice. In getting to know one another for the first time during this working process the pair have laid the ground for this performance by sharing a curious exploration into discovering discomforting thresholds within the branded Nordic concepts of “hygge”,”kos”, “mysigt” and “kalsarikänni”. Along the way this investigation has also meandered through ASMR cultures, analogue amplification, exaggerated proximities and temptations of conformity.

This new collaborative performance has been jointly commissioned by the Fourth Edition Festival in Stockholm, Borealis Festival for Experimental Music, Bergen and Äänen Lumo in Helsinki. The commission has been supported by the Nordic Culture Fund.

Cara Tolmie

Cara Tolmie works from within the intersections of performance, music and moving image. Her works probe the site-specific conditions of performance-making by finding ways to vocalise and place her body that access the political and poetic capabilities of physical, written and musical languages. Recent performance works ask questions about whose emotions the singing voice acts as a locus for and tests ways that the performing body can disrupt the flows of value that profit from this voice.


Stine Janvin 

Stavanger born, Berlin based vocalist Stine Janvin works with experimental music, sound and audiovisual performance, with a special interest in the ambiguous and unrecognisable qualities of the voice. Her recent work is focussed on imitation and abstract storytelling through sound collages inspired by a variety of genres and traditions of electronic music, sound poetry, folk music and languages of various peoples, birds and animals.

Through a diversity of projects such as Fake Synthetic Music, the performative installation The Subjective Frequency Transducer,  the live radio play In Labour, alter ego Stine II and as the second half of field recording adaptations duo Native Instrument (Shelter Press), she explores and challenges the physical features of the voice, the acoustics of her external/internal surroundings, and new performance strategies.


This collaboration between Cara Tolmie and Stine Janvin Motland is part of a joint Nordic collaboration between Edition Festival, Borealis Festival for Experimental Music in Bergen and Äänen Lumo, Helsinki and is made possible with support from the Nordisk Kulturfond.

Annea Lockwood

Born in New Zealand in 1939 and living in the US since 1973, Annea Lockwood is known for her explorations of the rich world of natural acoustic sounds and environments, in works ranging from sound art and installations, through text-sound and performance art to concert music.

For this event at Fylkingen, Annea Lockwood will present two concert works: ‘Immersion’ (for two percussionists) and ‘Jitterbug’ (for three performers and six-channel sound).

Lockwood’s installation ‘A Sound Map of the Danube’ — a surround ‘sound map’ of the entire Danube River, incorporating a wide variety of water, animal and underwater insect sounds, rocks from the riverbed and the voices of those whose lives are intimately connected to the river will be installed and available to experience at MDT’s Studio 2 for the duration of the festival — no ticket/pass required.

Bonnet produces music under his Kassel Jaeger pseudonym. Kassel Jaeger’s works are a complex balance between concrète experimentalism, ambient noise, and electroacoustic improvisation. He has released several well-received albums on various labels including Editions Mego and Senufo Editions.


Oren Ambarchi & Crys Cole

Oren Ambarchi and cry cole reimagine electro-acoustic music, not simply as “abstract” sound, but as a diary, a love poem, a dream. Their second release ‘Hotel Record’ continues to explore the pair’s simultaneously musical and romantic relationship in a more subtle fashion, presenting four long-form pieces that touch on the variety of forms the life of this couple takes: as a musical duo, as a pair of travelers to exotic locations, as opponents in a game of cards… Each of the double LP’s four sides presents a distinct sound-world, yet each manages to attain the same suspended, half-sleeping feeling, outlining a space where improbable combinations of the electronic and the acoustic, of extreme closeness and amorphous distance, occurring with the gentle insistence of a dream.
