Read "PunktFestival 2017" reviewed by Luca Vitali

Punkt Festival
Kristiansand, Norvegia
Varie sedi
31.8-2.9.2017

Come sempre Punkt è un festival fuori dall'ordinario e all'insegna dell'imprevisto e dell'imprevedibile. Una sorta di Industria 4.0 della musica: fuori dal “circolo" dei tour estivi, tipico dei festival jazz, e poco interessato a fotografare il passato e il presente, è invece molto attento ...

Arve Henriksen: Places of Worship

Read "Places of Worship" reviewed by John Eyles

Places of Worship marks the return of Supersilent's trumpeter and vocalist Arve Henriksen to Rune Grammofon after his 2008 solo album Cartography for ECM--if we conveniently ignore the awesome compilation Solidification (Rune Grammofon, 2012). While this new release is credited to Henriksen alone, it continues his long-standing collaboration with Jan Bang and Erik Honoré of Punkt, ...

Day 1 | Day 2 | Day 3 | Day 4

For its fifth year, Punkt Festival's evening programming was, more than any other, organized around clearer thematic lines, although that still meant a considerably broader purview than most other festivals--and, of course, there was the occasional exception.

Read "Punkt Festival 2009: Day 2, Kristiansand, Norway, September 3, 2009" reviewed by John Kelman

Day 1 | Day 2 | Day 3 | Day 4

One of Punkt's many definers is its fearless avoidance of stylistic boundaries. Some festivals are expanding their stylistic purview out of necessity; Punkt has always been style-blind by definition. So it's not uncommon to find a program where some of today's greatest experimentalists ...

Day 1 | Day 2 | Day 3 | Day 4

---> Every festival has its raison d'être, but the Kristiansand festival, in Norway, has many. It's primary definer is its “Live Remix" concept--where performances in Agder Theatre's main hall are immediately followed by live remixes of the performance just passed, with additional musicians interacting, ...

Read "Crime Scenes" reviewed by John Kelman

For those who missed Punktfest '06 in Norway, Crime Scenes is the perfect introduction to the Punkt aesthetic. Created by Jan Bang and Erik Honoré, two increasingly well-known artists in pop and improvised music circles, the essence of Punkt is an exploration into the organic dovetailing of modern technology with conventional musical instruments and methodologies.
