The first time I read a poem by the Norwegian poet Olav H. Hauge I was sold. I fell in love with his writing and the sound his poems had when I said them out loud. This fascination and love for his poems ended up as a performance called Vestlandet I Meg, named after a poem by Ingvar Moe, which was a meeting between the written words, the human voice and the raw guitar. A performance I did together with guitar player Øystein Bjørstad Lindbeck from DinFreundin, and it was played at Kulturfabrikken Sortland in Norway.
It was such a great experience, with overwhelming feedback and at the moment I’m planning on developing the project even further, also using my own poems.
