Imagine Torgallmenningen, Bergen’s main square, full of pianos! And these are not just normal pianos. These have been tampered with, untempered and prepared, something which would surely have delighted Johan Sebastian Bach and John Cage alike. Once again, it is school students from Bergen who take centre stage during this annual collaboration between BIT20 and the Bergen International Festival. The students take over Torgallmenningen with their unique compositions, leaving their creative stamp on the street life of Bergen. Under the guidance of our team from BIT20, the 50 students have composed their own music on these specially doctored pianos and will be unveiling their works in collaboration with musicians from the BIT20 Ensemble.
