11/12:Norwegian leg of duo tour continues, perform in Bergen on a double billwith Michel Doneda/Lê Quan Ninh. Ninh was extraordinary. Long wait to play leads to a frenetic set- cutting rhythms and sound extensions; melodic contours.

Paal and I play in his hometown of Stavanger, at Galleri Sult, where Terry Nilssen-Love’s paintings are being exhibited. 2 extremely focused sets, tons of variety and the communication level super intense; best
concert of the tour so far and the room was wall to wall with listeners. Terry’s new paintings had Hans Hoffman’s Push/Pull to them.
