Niilas (aka Peder Niilas Tårnesvik) is one of Norway’s most promising young electronica producers. By drawing on childhood memories from Kåfjord and circular rhythms inspired by his Sámi heritage, Niilas weaves beats, deep bass and melancholic melodies into glittery textures of sound. This mix of sound sources, including joik, Moog synthesizers and the Iranian santoor, earned him a Spellemann prize for the album Also This Will Change (2020).
Tonight he is bringing along a select group of collaborators and artists to transform Festsalen into a very special and unusual performance space. Brace yourself for a concert experience where visuals, light and Niilas’s energetic, otherworldly music merge in eclectic, sweeping movements.
