Mutual Intentions | Bendik Baksaas & Frederik Høyer | Karolinskii (live) | Charlotte Bendiks (live) | More TBA
For one day in June every year, Oslo plumes her musical feathers, showcasing some of the city’s most brilliant talent across multiple venues and various musical genres in one of the most unique musical experiences any city has to offer. It’s Musikkfest, and in 2019 it returns to Jæger with yet another incredible line-up from morning to night and carrying on well into the early hours of the next day with Dj sets and live sets from some of the city’s hottest emerging talents.
Mutual Intentions are back in 2019 with their signature three-hour takeover in our courtyard, setting the scene for the day ahead with a hybrid DJ and live event, that will feature music from Fredfades, Ivan Ave and Jawn Rice and a colourful diorama of the vast expanse of the collective’s musical dialogue.
Mutual Intentions is an Oslo based crew and label unified by their work in music and visual arts. Mutual Intentions members are musicians Ivan Ave, Fredfades, Yogisoul, Mest Seff, Jawn Rice and SRAW, photographer Moe Chakiri, videographer Erik Treimann, videographer Olav Friisberg, designer Hans Jørgen Wærner and manager Stian Nicolaysen.
Bendik Baksaas & Frederik Høyer
Bendik Baksaas and Fredrik Høyer are musical duo that combine avant garde electronica with literature and poetry. Fredrik Høyer is Norwegian poet, author and performer known for his text and performances through various media for stage, screen and radio. His inventive rhyme incorporates elements of rap, hip hop and jazz which he delivers in a combination of performance and literature. Bendik Baksaas is an electronic music artist that works within the progressive margins of electronic music in Oslo and Norway. His musical dialect extends from introspective ambient improvisations to blistering Techno, coaxed from powerful musicians.
Together they create a multimedia immersive experience for their audience, that has also been captured on the recorded format before in the EP Grønland Kaller and recently in a new single, “Fortellinga / Fake blodmåner go England”. They’re debut album is called “Till alt ute,” a 26 track LP featuring 9 poets and out in in 2019.
When Karolinski, known to friends and family as Karoline Hegrenes, is not producing deep and dubby sounds, she can be found skydiving in Voss, flying alongside some of the best extreme sports athletes in the world. “When you’re flying time stands still and you’re above the fear of falling. That’s what I put into my music, that’s the feeling I want to share with Karolinski listeners”. Formally trained at art school, Karoline moved to London at the tender age of 18, where she cut her teeth on music video production in a Brixton studio. Clubbing around in London played a big part in her music education but the mountains of Norway are the true source of inspiration for her timeless musicality. Edited by David Hyndman, the music video for Abnormal Soundscape stars an anonymous BASE jumper launching a surreally beautiful flight from a mountain-top in Norway.
Charlotte Bendiks [live]
he likes dogs, Jacuzzis, riding a bike, bålkos, å få napp, her own oceans of emotions, hummus, Rhabarbersaftschorle, free WiFi, Mezcal, dark days and dark nights, talking fast, dancing slow, serious shit, funny shit, singing, getting dirty, staying away, getting close, going hard, being active, being passive, being together, being there, getting it all. A DJ, a producer, and a positive thinker, she spent the last years exploring music, people, life and places.
Playful and silly, and therefore confident and sexy, whether as a DJ or playing live, her music is deep, dark, and psychedelic.
