“USA 1982”, a new live score for the American cult movie Koyaanisqatsi

“Crazy life, life in turmoil, life disintegrating, life out of balance, a state of life that calls for another way of living.”

USA 1982. Koyaanisqatsi. Or the ambitious meeting between a legendary American movie and the intense, powerful as well as touching and fragile music of Brussels-based post-rock quartet We Stood Like Kings, inspired by the likes of Pink Floyd, Chopin and Mogwai. With their previous releases BERLIN 1927 (Symphony of a Great City – Walter Ruttmann) and USSR 1926 (A Sixth Part of the World – Dziga Vertov) and after more than 200 concerts in 15 countries, the four young musicians have now become a reference in their field on the European scene. They will present their latest soundtrack USA 1982, a mind-blowing experience that appeals to all your senses.

Monograf (NO)

Monograf varmer opp denne kvelden. Inspirasjon fra band som Grails, Godspeed You Black Emperor og felespilleren Nils Økland kan høres, samtidig som en egen stilsikkerhet og særpreg skinner klart og tydelig frem. Her blir post-rock, progressive rock, pop og den dystrere delen av norsk folkemusikk flettet sammen i en unik kombinasjon. De ferdigstiller for øyeblikket sin første fullengder som utgis høsten 2018.
