instagram
i am now on instagram. don’t know why and not 100% sure what it’s all about, apparently you just take pictures, and sometimes a picture can say more than 140 characters.

14th of april 1980 - i was a brand new born baby

a video of me performing my song ‘in the middle of norway’ -today, on my birthday! live at the office. let’s celebrate!

studio b / exhibition
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.
