Punkt Festival 2017

The openness of the works keeps mind, ear and body sharp and sensitive without getting lost in variation/transmutation. The Punkt musicians and their works have a clear, recognizable signature and various leitmotivs. A good example is the new album of drummer Audun Kleive and Jan Bang entitled Periphery Of A Building. The work is "reconsidering live Punkt remixes of Etenesh Wassie & Mathieu Sourisseau, AtomTM and Clarinet Factory & Floex. In their selection of source material for the Gråtone LP, they eradicate, and then reconstruct tradition." (for the sources mentioned see the reports of the Punkt Festivals , 2013. The Periphery of a Building "brings the past into the present and draws a red thread between genres. It juxtaposes disparate ideas between the dance floor and jazz, and ensnares itself in the tangled web of tradition and progress" and that's something Punkt is essentially about.
