Read "Ravensburg" reviewed by Neri Pollastri

Dopo il viaggio in una memoria immaginaria del precedente Midwest, ritratto di un Canada che gli ricordava la natia Norvegia, Mathias Eick passa a una memoria vissuta, legata all'infanzia e ai legami affettivi, raccolta in un lavoro che doveva chiamarsi Family come la traccia che lo apre e che poi ha preso il nome dalla città ...

Espen Berg Trio: Bølge

Read "Bølge" reviewed by Gareth Thompson

The highest wave ever measured by a fixed installation hit a Norwegian gas transporter in the North Sea. The wave was marked at 25.6 metres high.

Karl Seglem: NyeSongar.no
