Catch Light is a double concerto for violin and percussion. The Percussion part is built around a Bass drum, which is used for various purposes. The violin part origins in the light, airy register. The two soloists are working on their respective threads, independently but with related ideas. Like a continuous conversation between two persons that keep a certain distance. Traces remain in the orchestra, as veins of sound.

We went four hours out in the sea, west of Bodø, and this is when Røst appears… 365 islands, 620 inhabitants, who knows how many birds, hotspot of Norway’s stockfish export and a cute, rustic place to stay at Kårøy - of course on its own island. Perfect sidestep to a visit to the festival Nordland Musikkfestuke.
The Kitchen Five are currently performing in this new dance production at Tou Scene. All eight performances seem to be sold out. More on Inbal Pinto Dance Company. More on Kitchen Orchestra. And this is one of the major items of the Stavanger2008 European Capital of Culture programme.
