If you haven´t heard Amatøroyar you have a huge problem (or you probably don't understand Faroese). The concept is simple. It is a podcast. Two open hearted amateurs talking about everything. The subjects and themes are spontanious. The language is totally off and only once in a while the observations hit the bulls eye. Amatøroyar is in short a passionated conversation between two friends, you are welcomed to be the listener.
The first Amatøroyar show was released in October 2017 and has grown into a podcast that has thousands of internationasl listeners. The amateurs are Bjarni Arge and Jóan Pauli Dahl Jakobsen. And they will perform a live podcast with observations that are suitable for the occasion. They will discuss things that should be stopped, things that are cool, things that are absurd and things they like.
The two guys from Amatøroyar do not intend to break the penal code but they will be completely out of pedagogical control.
orBIT : A play by Ria Tórgarð.
A band meets up. They are going to rehearse. They have been rehearsing previously – often – they meet up regularly in order to rehearse music. 6 people, who all have their personal qualities, their dreams and wishes, their identities and desires. But is it music, that is the motivation for them to make a band? Or is it something else? The common feeling and the love for music is set aside to make room for personal interests and becomes an obstacle to the symbiosis that is essential for creativity. This is an absurd play, a tragic comedy, about people, who cannot find the common tune, and do not have the common sense needed, in order to create music together. The Theater Group is founded by MáF, who has invited them to take part in an International Theater Festival in Litava this summer. The play is designed for an international audience.
Hettarher is a electroacustic band. The members, Andreas Restorff and Torleik Mortensen are playing a composition of acustic and eloctronic, minimalism and spectralism in a fusin og nature and industralisme.
Meejah - The Taegeuk - a cyclical consert
Meejah plays a cyclical consert around the elements in the Korean flag, The Taegeuk, blending elements from traditional Korean music with distortion, hints of metal, soft hip hop, soundscapes and quirky midi productions. The sequense sends out the intention of bringin peace to the Korean peninsula and end the war between North and South Korea.
In november last year, Meejah played an opening concert for the Korean postrock band, Jambinai, who played at the closing ceremony at the Winter Olympics in Korea. In september this year Meejah will play at the International Day of Peace Festival in Central Park in New York and afterwards they are heading east, where they will play at the peace walk in the Demilitarized Zone on the border of North and South Korea.
Meejah is Andreas Isbrandt Løvenskjold, Daniel Nayberg and Mai Young Øvlisen.
