Jazz talk

– informal conversations about jazz and cultural policy themes every mourning at Jazzboksen

12.00-12.30: Sustain – a conversation about music and rubbish

This friday we are lucky enough to showcase the concert performance Sustain, which was developed for the Festspillene in Bergen last year to brilliant feedback. Bodil Lunde Rørtveit (composition, conceptual development, vocal) and Vibeke Flesland Havre (conceptual development, direction, dramaturgy) will take part in Jazzprat at Jazzboksen to talk about Sustain – this outstanding show about human relation to nature and the climate challenges we are facing.

12.30-13.00: Norwegian jazz from an outside perspective

The festival has invited a handful of foreign journalists and representatives from the international jazz industry to what we call the Kongsberg Jazz Meeting. The purpose is to promote the festival and the vast diversity of Norwegian jazz. But what does Norwegian jazz actually look like from an international perspective? In this conversation, we meet Portuguese Pedro Costa, founder of Clean Feed Records, a leading record company in modern jazz – which also has released a number of records with Norwegian musicians. In addition to Pedro Costa, we meet the American journalist Peter Margasak, who writes for Downbeat and the Chicago Reader. In conversation with music journalist Audun Vinger.

Hosted by music journalist Audun Vinger
