Nordic Musics: Nation, Environment, Magic
As part of the international conference “Global Challenges – Nordic Experiences” happening in Oslo 20-21 March 2017, Deichman will host an event with presentations by music researchers Stéphane Aubinet and Tore Størvold from The University of Oslo and Nina Nielsen from the Norwegian Academy of Music, followed by a live performance by Torgeir Vassvik.
This event is free of charge and open to everyone with a love of music! We will hear three talks, spanning musical genres and geographic locations:
Nina Nielsen, Ph.D. fellow at The Norwegian Academy of Music:
Black Metal Magic: Conjuring Sounds of Heritage Lost
Stéphane Aubinet, Ph.D. fellow at the Department of Musicology, University of Oslo:
Cohabiting With Wolves: Sámi joik and the Norwegian Environmental Policy
Tore Størvold, Ph.D. fellow at the Department of Musicology, University of Oslo:
Performing Dreamland: Musical Responses to Environmental Debates in Iceland
The talks will be followed by Q&A sessions, and we hope this event will encourage inspiring discussions on all aspects of Nordic music. Because this is part of an international conference, the talks will be given in English.
