The Insomnia crew are very happy to finally be able to share the first batch of exciting electronic artists who will perform at this years festival with you all.
Renowned avant-garde composer Maja Ratkje and Ume Saami artist Katarina Barruk combine forces. They present “Avant Joik” – a unique, commissioned work which blends joik and experimental electronic soundscapes.
One of the best electronic debut albums of 2017 came from JASSS. Her album “Weightless” was industrial, complex, yet strangely up lifting. Wonderful tensions drive her music.
The visionary Hieroglyphic Being, an artist in the truest sense of the word, will bring us a live-set of his raw, distorted and eclectic dance music. Will he only use two iPads?
Norwegian Ivan Ave will bring his smooth hip-hop, inspired by Jazz and the legends of 90’s rap, while Japanese artist, Golin treats us to her dreamy, layered voices and modernist sound.
Golin and JASSS are presented as part of the SHAPE Platform under the Creative Europe program.
