Helge Sten and Ståle Storløkken’s work Folklore explores the distance between acoustic and electronic sound, harmonic and microtonal music, the known and unknown. Time ceases and opens up for new ways of listening.

About ROOMS & RITUALS:
Norways leading sound designer Asle Karstad has exclusively developed and designed the effect controller ”Maccatrol” for the ensemble: a small wireless box carried on the body, enabling each singer to move freely, individually processing themselves in the room, using effects and loops. The singers perform within a surround setup, sharing space with the audience and breaking down the barrier of the conventional stage setting. This gives the audience a unique listening experience.
Trondheim Voices´ newest album “Rooms & Rituals» – is just released world wide to stunning international reviews. All the music is improvised and recorded live with no overdubs. The voices are the only sound source – with live electronic processing through our exclusively designed effect controllers «Maccatrols” by Asle Karstad. The album is a clear example of how Trondheim Voices+Asle Karstad sounds live in concert.
