Anja Lauvdal: Thoughts Unsaid, Then Forgotten Ultima

An atmospheric deep dive into electroacoustics in Anja Lauvdal’s new commission for Ultima and MUNCH

Age limit 18 years
Doors open: 20:00
Start: 21:00

Thoughts Unsaid, Then Forgotten is a rare solo show from freeform pianist and electronic musician Anja Lauvdal. Playing alone, Lauvdal gives herself total freedom, bounded only by whatever conceptual framework she chooses for the occasion. For this special evening she will dig deeper into the electroacoustic forms she explored on recent albums From a Story Now Lost and Farewell to Faraway Friends,both released on Smalltown Supersound. Her commissioned work will be accompanied by images from visual artist Signe Fuglesteg Luksengard.   
Over the years she has developed an evocative keyboard style and a rare ability to conjure multiple sonic moods, reflecting on the fragility of the natural world. She has taken part in many different projects in jazz, improvised music and pop, including as a member of groups such as Moskus, Skadedyr, Cosmic River and Broen. By now Lauvdal is an established force on the Norwegian scene, running the All Ears festival and collaborating with Jenny Hval, Sanskriti Shresta, Hamid Drake and William Parker to name a few.
