Only Connect Kids: Kollasj

A music festival for children, for all families interested in music, vinyl, dance and movies.

What is a collage (kollasj)? It's when a material is cut from its original context and put together to a new entity - a new image, a new sound, a movie clip or text. At this festival, the kids can explore musical collages in the context monster basses, vinyl destruction, Disney movies and blasting disco. Suitable for all children ages 4 - 13 years.

With Guro Moe, Nordic Voices, Kjell Tore Innervik, Ole-Henrik Moe, Kari Rønnekleiv

See and hear the octobass, the world's largest double bass, reaching almost four meters. Guro S. Moe plays her huge instrument in an acoustic collage with Ole-Henrik Moe and Kari Rønnekleiv on string instruments, as well as the vocal ensemble Nordic Voices and percussionist Kjell Tore Innervik. The musicians are situated among the audience in the venue on different stages.

With Lasse Marhaug

Meet noise musician Lasse Marhaug who experiments with vinyl records and turntables. He physically cuts and breaks the vinyl records and puts them together with tape and glue. Marhaug also combines musical genres, that don’t really fit together, into a fun new mix.

For the festival, Bennett has made a collage of movie clips taken from children's and classical films about the city of London. The music is played live by People Like Us.
