The result of this visit was hours of recordings, both of traditional gamelan and more modern figures. Back in Oslo, DiskJokke has now worked these recordings into four long compositions. He tells us that the tunes have a softer and more meditative character than one might expect from him. The piece will be completed and practiced during the summer, and will be a perfect match for the afternoon sun at the Øya Festival.¨

The Øya Festival
The Øya Festival is held in what is called the Medieval Park in Oslo, Norway – a beautiful spot surrounded by white, sandy beaches, the Oslo Fjord to the south, and the Oslo skyline to the west. The Medieval Park is also the site on which the capital of Norway was founded a thousand years ago – and it’s only a short walk to the city center of Oslo, which creates an exciting rendezvous between nature and culture. This years festival will be held during 10-14 August and 200 bands will perform, on 30 venues, included 4 outdoor stages.
