For three days in January we throw open MUNCH to the All Ears festival of improvised music. This is the lineup for Sunday:

Stine Stjern & Elina Waage Mikalsen 
Fredrik Rasten 

On this day it is possible to bring the whole family to the museum and take part in MINIMUNCH: Kid’s Art Day. During the concerts the museum’s amphiteatre can be used as a break room for families.  
Concert tickets include access to the museum’s exhibitions.   

Stina Stjern and Elina Waage Mikalsen play a rare collaboration mixing analogue and digital technology, improvised music and memory. Stina Stjern (aka Stina Moltu) embraces jazz, art-pop and free improvised experimental music. A recurring theme is an examination of humanity and her love for cassette tapes as a sound source. Her latest release, The Devil EP (2020), is a personal interpretation of the tarot card of the same name. 

A former member of Supervixen, Stina plays guitar and cassettes in Norwegian artist Susanna's project Brotherhood of Our Lady, and some of her work with cassettes can be heard on Susanna’s new album Elevation (2022). Stina is also a part of Oslo's coolest improv-collective, DNA?AND?.

Elina Waage Mikalsen is a Sami-Norwegian artist working with text, textiles, performance and installations. She uses sound as a central element: field recordings, voice, electronic and self-built instruments.  

Fredrik Rasten is a guitarist and composer based in Oslo and Berlin. He loves exploring the complexities of tone and harmony with unusual tuning systems. Live, he often re-tunes his instrument in real time, to create warm and fluctuating resonances. He is currently active in the Berlin based collective Harmonic Space Orchestra, the duo Pip with Torstein Lavik Larsen, and as a solo artist. Rasten’s recordings have been published on labels such as SOFA, Edition Wandelweiser, Ftarri, Shhpuma and INSUB.
