Last week I was part of a very special project with this amazing group of people - a Joni Mitchell tribute concert for @oslojazz . This is not something I have done before, and I didn’t grow up listening to Mitchell’s music either, but I am so happy I got to experience it. The project was not just about playing fantastic music with fantastic musicians, but about creating a collaborative, positive and inclusive space. When each of us weren’t playing during the show, we were gathered on a couch on stage to listen to the others and to still be part of the group. It was very touching to get to do this on the huge stage in the Norwegian opera house. Big ❤️ to band leader Anja Lauvdal and her thoughts about music as community, dialogue and empathy. Also big 💛🧡 to all of these people, who combined have endless amounts of creative spirit and are true gems of the local (and interstellar) music scene. @susannamagical @fridaannevik @heida.karine @wintherchristian @sondrelerche @magnusskavhaugnergaard @roheytaalah @hannapaulsberg @torztein @hanshulbaekmo

I really enjoyed doing this interview with Noisey, on the phone hiding from North Carolina rain showers, talking about chilling, algorithms and writing while slowly realising I was standing outside a metaphysical shop.

Thanks to all the lovely people who came to see us on our trip to the US this month! And also thanks to the superb people at @nordicmuseum , @lodgeroom , @form and @moogfest ! These pictures don’t do anyone justice though. Except perhaps a couple of versions of America. Tomorrow we play in Den Haag, more on that later!
