This collaboration between Ultima and by:Larm features some of today’s youngest and most adventurous sound explorers.

The Caribbean-Belgian multi-instrumentalist Nala Sinephro blasts off on a cosmic voyage where Alice Coltrane-style harp encounters a galaxy of glittering ambient textures.

From the traditional weaving instruments once belonging to her áhkku (grandmother), Elina Waage Mikalsen has created an instrument of rich textures that summons ancient Sami spirits. The instrument constitutes the basis for her music, along with with vocals, effects and field recordings.

Nothing Personal
is the Oslo-based trio of Dorothea Økland, Thea Emilie Wang and Solveig Wang. They describe their methods as ‘curated improvisation’, combining elements from jazz, experimental pop, R&B and electroacoustic music.




Electronic alchemy

Nothing Personal are passionate about gadgets and vintage electronics and theyprove deep into the old circuit boards to find the magic within. I loved how theyusually manage to transform keyboards and synths found at flea markets into musical gold. Great to experience the same glow this evening, after Elina Mikkalsen’s hypnotic set!



Cosmic harp

What a crowd at Jakob tonight!! It was exhilarating to be part of this long and exciting evening. Nala Sinephro was a real discovery. Friends had told me about her debut album Space 1.8, so I was expecting a far out mix of folk, jazz and more. But the concert really blew me away with a spacey, deeply felt ambient vibe!
