Following Tetsuro Yasunaga’s spoken word introduction, here unfolds Jana Winderen’s blistering live set from her recent trip to Japan as part of Norwegian Music Today. Her first CD, Heated follows her only other release to date, a 7" vinyl limited edition, ‘Surface Runoff’, on Autofact (USA, 2008). Improvising from recordings taken on field research trips, she forces the power of the hidden to the surface, making the unheard audible.

It’s a strange world down there; a world of which we know little, replete with its own instrumentation and orchestras. Tapping into these, Jana’s vision encourages us to explore the fertility of the oceans…

The work with the installation was supported by NBK, Norske Billedkunstnere.
