montage sauvage tonight in oslo

tonight, our vj-collective montage sauvage (myspace) is going to perform at fabrikken in oslo. since my friends came here to pick me up, this was the best opportunity to have a gig together again. we are going to be on the second floor, which is actually quite big. tobi neumann, who is the main act tomorrow comes from germany and is related to sven väth’s club cocoon. he has been producing and remixing for acts like miss kittin, chicks on speed or dj hell.

a short update

just a short personal update for those who are interested:
# i was at the lofoten-islands last week. it was amazing. i made a lot of pictures. upload on flickr soon.
# i celebrated norway’s national holiday with some couchsurfers from all over the world. it was an amazing time.
# in less than two weeks i will leave oslo and return back to austria. my friends from montage sauvage will me pick me up with the car.
# i heard that the springseven-performance of montage sauvage was really successful. and the rest of the festival was great fun, i assume. next year i will be there for sure.
# tomorrow is my last exam.
# i am working on a new project – i hope to announce it soon. the last part of the name is “blitz”.
# and finally: i have homesake!

exploring southern norway

i had a very amazing roadtrip last weekend. together with david, jessica and magda i travelled to southern norway.
check out the pictures: here are some high quality ones, here are some photos i made with my mobile.

the palace

a short summary of the trip:
start friday, 14.00, in oslo -> drammen (sights: spiralen tunnel & water reservoir) ->kongsberg (sights: kongsberg kirke, the forests & the silver mines) -> telemark canal (sights: the pictoresque lakes) -> birkeland (we spent the night at a doctor’s place; happenings: party, ghost, best breakfast in norway, woodwork, swimming in 4 degree cold water) -> kristiansand (sights: church & fortress) -> dozens of small villages with hundreds of white houses, unfortunately i don’t remember their names -> gjeving (awesome hotel for reasonable price) -> stops in risør and kragerø -> back to oslo sunday, 21.00.

the trip can be easily done in two and a half a days. we drove 900 kilometers and spent plenty of time in most of the cities and villages. the weather was great, the lonely planet travel guide was quite helpful. song of the trip: phoenix – if i ever feel better.

i was not the only austrian on the trip, i was lucky because also arnold schwarzenegger joined us. see more photos of arnie and me here.

ps: remember, don’t go into 4 degree cold water, even if a german doctor says that it is healthy. you’ll get a terrible cold afterwoods.
