Apparatjik and KORK to perform at the opening of the Fosnavåg konserthus

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’.

Magne was interviewed on NRK Møre og Romsdal in June about the program. The interview is available to watch here (starting at 05:00).

‘Beatles’ movie will open the Norwegian International Film Festival

The long awaited film adaptation of Lars Saabye Christensen’s novel Beatles will have the honor of opening the 42nd Norwegian International Film Festival on Sunday, August 17 in Haugesund.

“We are absolutely delighted that producer Jørgen Storm Rosenberg will return to Haugesund with a big event film like Beatles – 10 years after he opened the festival with his first production Uno,” Festival Director Gunnar Johan Løvvik says.

Magne has composed the original score as well as supervised the recordings of other music for the film. He is working with Johan Husvik, the music supervisor of Beatles. Creating an authentic sixties sound is very important to the film. Rushprint has a very interesting interview with Husvik, in which he says the music ‘has been a fifth character, in addition to the four main characters.’

The movie will have its regular theatrical release on August 29. Tickets can already be purchased online for showtimes on August 29.
