My Høyblokka-Contribution reviewed in Aftenposten

Høyblokka around 1960

aftenposten_høyblokkAftenposten-review

Earlier this year I was asked to contribute in a rather special exhibition: Høyblokka Revisited – http://hoyblokkarevisited.wordpress.com/ –  It was all about the Government Quarter after the terror acts on July 22nd.    I made two sketches.  My opinion was – and still is – that music and sound was needed on the memorial site.  I suggested a  particular melancholic folk song from the Sognefjord.   Yesterday I realized Aftenposten (Norway’s largest newspaper) paid positive attention to my idea – http://www.osloby.no/oslopuls/kunst_og_scene/Hoyblokka-revisited—lekent-tenkt-og-tegnet-7519707.html#.U6sZdcaxo49

Nicholas Møllerhaug ønsker å spille av lyden av et stev i området.   Som Erling Viksjø brukte synlige steinpartikler i sin naturbetong, har norske folketoner ofte spor av mange individuelle steder og tradisjoner i seg, påpeker han. Slik skapes en oppfinnsom, lyrisk, parallell til Viksjøs materialbruk.”
