…because that means that I am working on something rather than spending my time on Facebook. These days I have barred myself in my apartment, doing something I have never tried before:
I am writing a book. At first I thought it would be easy, then I started trying and realised it would be hard. Then I got a little further, and decided that easy or hard doesn’t matter. It feels important, and that’s the most important thing.
The book is the next (and final?) stage of the Unsongs project. In the last few years, there have been countless situations that didn’t end up on camera, or even in my diary. I’m going through all those things now, writing about the dangers and perks of working with censored music as your main thing for a year.
A few of the things I’ll be writing about is the meetings with amazing musicians all over the world who have sacrificed everything to speak their mind through music. I’m simply speechless when I look back and try to understand the choices they have made, and the things they have been through. These stories deserve to be heard.
So for a little while now, no news are good news, because that means things are happening. And soon they really start happening again, as we A) go for our first US ‘tour’ ever B) play in a sold-out opera at home in Norway and C) start playing concerts again all over Europe in March. So there is a little news, after all.
Take care, and see you soon!
