PREHISTORIC PARTY MUSIC VOL. 1–14

From Mexico to Norway in one night

BIT20 Ensemble join in on the official opening of Borealis 2019 as part of a special collaboration with El Nicho festival, from Mexico City.

As well as new music and performance from Mexico, BIT20 will premiere an exciting new work from Norwegian composer Øyvind Torvund, commissioned for both BIT20 and the Mexican ensemble Liminar. Torvund describes his new work Prehistoric Party Music vol. 1­–14 as ritualistic and psychedelic music. The piece speculates on the sound of Stone Age bone flutes and drums. Naturally recordings of these instruments, which date back 35000 years, are non-existent. This leaves the audience completely dependent on Torvund’s imagination to discover what the instruments of that time sounded like.

Join us for a musical journey spanning Norway to Mexico, the stone ages till today, in one night!
