Punkt Festival

Punkt – at the core of a natural network

 

Punkt is a music festival in the city of Kristiansand in the south of Norway. The festival concept is centered around a stage/studio hybrid called the Alpha Room. This room is an extension of how the curators of the festival, Jan Bang and Erik Honoré, have worked with a range of Nordic and international improvisational artists over the last years; with live sampling and live electronics, and as record producers and remixers.

 

Live Remix

 

In the Alpha Room (the smaller, black box type stage at Agder Teater), the concerts on the main stage are remixed, and the audience may listen to the remixes immediately after each concert. In some cases, the remixers also invite musicians to interact with the remixes, making the Alpha Room an environment for innovation and improvisation.
