Apparatjik and KORK – Norway’s premier orchestra – will perform together on October 23-24 during the official opening concert of the new Fosnavåg concert hall.

The performance will consist of sounds generated by people, boats and cars in Fosnavåg this summer, which have been monitored on camera by Apparatjik and made into a musical piece called ‘The sound of Fosnavåg’.
