working on 30x30 cm pencil + watercolor pieces for the art exhibition at dei nynorske festspela in june. based on illustrations from my three albums; ‘i am a singer / songwriter’ (‘07), ‘nothing like the love i have for you’ (‘09) and ‘keep movin - keep dreamin’ (‘11).
finally my brand new studio b is up and running. this is where i draw, make videos, do office work and everything else than record music.
i am currently working on an exhibition for dei nynorske festspela in june. it’s a festival celebrating norway’s second written language; neo-norwegian (wiki). the theme of this year’s festival is “songen” (the song) and they have asked me to be the festival artist. it will be an exhibition of illustration-prints from my three albums (egilolsen.com), some original drawings/paintings and excerpts from my lyrics translated to neo-norwegian. a few of these translations will also be performed live as spoken word accompanied by myself and my good friend and guitar player stig ulv.
on saturday i played for the kids/teens at UKM at tysværtunet just outside of haugesund. it was marvelous. i should play for more youngsters. i also had time to drop by radio 102 and play a couple of songs and talk.
hear the entire interview and both songs, ‘singer / songwriter’ and ‘do it yourself’ here >
