Punkt is a jazz/electronica music festival in the city of Kristiansand in the south of Norway. The festival is a concept based on a combination of concerts and concomitant treatment of the music from these concerts in a studio environment, where new music is created during the three days that the festival is in progress.
Punkt 2019 is the 15th festival edition, connecting voices of memory with future sounds, and expanding the festival’s venues to include the Sørlandet Art Museum, the Kilden Performing Arts Centre and the city’s cathedral Domkirken, in addition to Kick Scene.
Thurston Moore from Sonic Youth comes to Punkt 2019 with the Thurston Moore Ensemble, which features guitarist James Sedwards, My Bloody Valentine bassist Debbie Googe and Sonic Youth drummer Steve Shelley. Thurston Moore will also take part in this year’s Punkt Seminar, curated by David Toop.
Guitar innovator Steve Tibbetts performs in the cathedral with Marc Anderson, preceded by an organ concert by Ståle Storløkken and the vocal ensemble Trondheim Voices performing “Folklore”, composed by Helge Sten and Ståle Storløkken.
