Niklas Adam and Jenny Berger Myhre (DK/NO)
Jenny Berger Myhre and Niklas Adam are multidisciplinary artists working with music, sound, performance, installation and video, based in Oslo. Adam uses programming and electronics to generate instruments and situations with an inherent open sentiment, and examines their ability to break loose from the traditional behavioral patterns of listening, rational thinking and immediacy. Berger Myhre tends to use field recordings, found sound and lo-fi electronics, and seeks to remove the expectations of virtuous musical gestures by focusing on the sounds in themselves, and the mental images they produce in us. Patterns, repetition, perception and memory are recurring themes in both of their artistic practices. For All Ears 2022 they are doing their first collaboration — combining their different approaches and similar interests.
We asked them to do something for the foajé, play or make something of choice, together or independently, with whatever means they want, but going at it from the same starting point as they would a free improvised concert. We’re looking so much forward to seeing what they come up with.
