promote. But at the same time, the fact that we are redeveloping these spaces provides us with an opportunity. And it is not just about putting up barricades, as protecting ourselves comprehensively against low-tech attacks is near on impossible (although physical defence should be part of our thinking). Instead, we should tackle this hate by promoting mutual respect for rights, by finding space for individual beliefs, and by encouraging participation. How can the physical development of these spaces benefit our shared sense of purpose? THIS ISSUE’S

he autumn issue is always tinged with an element of sadness, as summer draws to a close and the winter nights draw in. This summer we have had the most amazing array of incredible events, drawing unprecedented crowds: the science and wonderment of Starmus, 200,000 enjoying the food and beer festival, Olavsfestdagene and its broadening marketplace, three days of revelling at Pstereo, full stadiums at Lerkendal, Trondheim Concerts filling the countryside with rock concerts, a packed (wet) immatrikuleringsseremoni at NTNU and AquaNor bringing the city centre to a standstill with its record attendance. I’m exhausted just listing it all. And now there are plans afoot to develop many of the city’s venues, so we can look forward to

bigger and better in the future. Granåsen, for example, is going to be completely redeveloped, as is Spektrum. Nyhavna has exciting plans to provide us with a new cultural melting pot and Torget (Trondheim’s central square) is closing for a couple of years, for renovations that will further enhance its ability to host large-scale public events. All exciting developments which will enhance the city’s capacity for big events. But I also hope safety and sustainability are taken into consideration, especially following attacks on large gatherings across Europe over the past year or two. Nice, Berlin, Stockholm, London, Manchester, Barcelona, knife attacks in Turkey and Finland… there is a long overdue conversation to be had about security in Trondheim. I am loath to speak about these issues: our job at The List is to let people know what is going on and encourage participation to the greatest possible degree. By speaking about these atrocities, and suggesting we change our attitudes, we run the risk of playing into the perpetrators’ hands, undermining the very values we want to preserve and HEAD OF SALES Matias Bretteville-Jensen +47 969 12 901 matias@thelist.no

Under the surface If you would like to read more about what is happening at Torvet turn to page 28 and dig into David Nikel’s excellent article on archeaology. This piece is part of a wider theme where we delve ‘under the surface’ of Trondheim and the region. Did you you know there is dragonglass to be found in Olavsgruva (page 44)?! Disclaimer: not actual dragonglass, but pretty cool all the same. And join us on a journey into the depths of the fjord with underwater photographer Hege Røkenes, and take a fish eye view of Trondheim Freediving club (page 20). Personally I can’t abide going any lower below the surface than the length of a snorkel, so I am interested to read about what is below the surface in terms of the cultural facade of the city. What does Trondheim have to offer beyond what we can see on the surface? Kulturnatt is just round the corner (15 September) and offers an excellent opportunity to experience reveal Trondheim’s hidden depths (for free!). We also look at underground art, with a warm welcome to newcomer Mr Yoshi, who has an incredible history of street art from around the world (page 39). And check out Juliana’s column, which reveals that what lies within can affect what’s on the outside. And there it is: we are all residents and visitors to this great city, with millions of different threads making up the tapestry of our lives here. Now all you got to do is pull… Editor-in-Chief Wil Lee-Wright SUB-EDITING Wil Lee-Wright, Bradley P. Kurtz, Jennifer Wold

Think Yourself Beautiful Is beauty only superficial, something some of us are born with while others are not, or does beauty indeed come from within?

I

n our childhood cartoons, the Good Princess would always be bright, happy with a serene countenance while the Evil Witch would be the opposite with a dark and twisted face. Moving into adulthood rarely have we called into question what we learn in these cartoons. The creators were obviously trying to teach kids about morals, that being ‘good’ is positive and desirable, and being ‘bad’ is the lesser choice. But are these visuals mere fantasy? I mean, aren’t cartoons based on some truth about how the world works? Do our looks tell us more about our character, our habits, and thoughts, more than we are willing to admit? Inner beauty has been a popular topic for quite some time and the trendy label for a person’s personality. With the influence of social media and ‘pretty girls’ everywhere, there seems to be a need to tell people, perhaps mostly the younger generation, that there needs to be more to a person than their physical beauty. It is a well-known fact that we tend to think that people are more beautiful physically if we have a good personal relationship. But, can inner beauty be more than just our personality? Can it be something we can control and master if we just put our mind to it? The power of thought is not a new philosophy, but rather a phenomenon known by most people these days. James Allen wrote about it as early as 1921: “A man is literally what he thinks, his character being the complete sum of all his thoughts.” Allen strongly believed that our body is shaped by our thoughts. His book, As a Man Thinketh, draws upon this philosophy: “The body is the servant of the mind. It obeys the operations of the mind, whether they be deliberately chosen or automatically expressed.” This means that everything we think on some level will affect our bodies, whether we like it or not. Many people seem to know and believe this, but seldom practice it. Athletes are one exception. They use the power of visualisation daily, to achieve their goals. Becoming the best in sports is just

Words by Juliana Martinsen

as much a mental strength as it is physical. Seeing yourself as the winner, playing the game, fight or run in your mind exactly how you want it to happen in real life seems to be just as important as those hours put in training at the gym. Athletes know the value and effect their thoughts have on their bodies, and this could be exactly what separates the best athletes from those who come second? If a person can become the best in sports using the power of thought and visualisation, then people must certainly be able to use this for the improvement of their looks, right? In my search for people who have used the power of thought to become more attractive and beautiful, I came across Jon Gabriel. His journey to weight loss seems almost unbelievable. His approach to weight loss started traditionally, with dieting and exercising. After trying and failing time and time again, he began to look for other methods. With visualisation, he quickly started to see results. Within two years he had lost 99 kilograms without dieting and exercise. This might sound unbelievable, but why is it so hard to believe? This was ten years ago, and he has managed to maintain his ideal body weight since then. There are many stories like this one about people who use their an ‘inner power’ to visualise how they want their bodies to look like, and who then succeed in shaping themselves without the physical effort we are told is necessary for any physical improvement. It is hard to explain by science how this is possible. The Japanese theorist Masaru Emoto did a series of tests to explore how water responds to positive and negative words. Emoto’s hypothesis is that water is the “blueprint of our reality” and our thoughts and emotions can change the physical structure of water. In his experiments, he put water in glasses and exposed it to different words, pictures and music, then freezing it and analysing how water crystals looked. His findings were that if he exposed water to positive words the water would form beautiful crystals, and if he did the opposite and exposed water to negative words it would form distorted crystals 9

But what happens to people when they are exposed to positive and negative thoughts and words? Do the molecules in our bodies also change when we think about something positive or negative? Our bodies consist of 60% water, which means that we, too, could be prone to similar change based on how we are spoken to or by what we see. Emoto’s methodology has come under criticism, but the exploration of that which is not easily quantifiable is worthy to pursue. Psychology has long said that thinking positively will affect how you feel, how you act and how you look. By speaking positively, you will also have a positive effect on people around you. According to Kari Løvendahl Mogstad, individuals who have a positive self-image become more beautiful because our thoughts affect the way we carry ourselves, and positive thinking contributes to a better posture and more charisma. She adds that positive thinking, as negative thinking, can be seen on our faces This is much in line with Allen’s theory. “I know a woman of ninety-six,” he writes, “who has the bright, innocent face of a girl. I know a man well under middle age whose face is drawn into inharmonious contours. The one is the result of a sweet and sunny disposition; the other is the outcome of passion and discontent.” The power within us to become more beautiful and attractive is for real. Having the right state of mind and consistently working to become a more positive person will, day by day, change your physical appearance from within. Be warned though; changing the way we think is not an easy task. It is more natural for us to think negatively than positively, how else would we solve all of our problems, right? Getting rid of all our negatively shouldn’t be the goal either. Being aware of the fact that we can make physical changes by thinking positively is powerful by itself. Try saying one positive thing to the image reflecting back at you in the mirror in the morning, and you will most likely look at a pretty happy, glowing, confident and charismatic person before you know it, maybe with a somewhat fitter body even. a THE EIGHTEENTH ISSUE

NTNU ACCEL LAUNCHES F3 FinTech For Future

P

atrick Skjennum is at his desk at NTNU Accel’s newest incubator: F3, FinTech For Future. The open plan coworking space is framed on three sides by floor-to-ceiling windows and, despite the hubbub of activity that surrounds him, Patrick’s workspace is bright and focused. As are his business’s prospects. “There could be a lot of potential customers and clients in this building,” says Patrick, pointing through the glass to Sparebank 1 SMN, the bank which has funded and partners the NTNU Accel initiative. The startup he co-founded, Mito.ai, is not owned or invested in by the bank, but benefits from a subsidised working environment, in an incubator which deals exclusively with young businesses in the FinTech sector. THE EIGHTEENTH ISSUE

“From a technology perspective it is great to see what other people with specialised knowledge are working on,” explains Patrick, from his new vantage point at the incubator’s location on Søndre Gate. “Getting to know what is really going on beyond their elevator pitch and powerpoint slides, is very insightful. Also, it’s pretty cool to be a part of, while also getting to shape, a growing (and local) FinTech community.” Mito.ai is an investment assistant, which uses text analytics and machine learning to analyse millions of news articles, before delivering realtime, personalised financial information. The underlying technology is based on four years of Artificial Intelligence (AI) research by co-founder Jon Espen Ingvaldsen, which Patrick collaborated on as 10

part of his master’s at NTNU. The technology became an established business under the supervision of the university’s Technology Transfer department (TTO), where the two remaining co-founders came on board; Sigve Søråsen (CEO) and Marit Rødevand. “Our main task is to help researchers at the university recognise that they are experts in technology and solutions,” says Erik Wold, Head of Venture at NTNU TTO. “It’s all about building a platform, an ecosystem, where people see that they have access to networks, to competence, and other areas which they don’t know so much about.” “We are experts in the market, and in business development, but we cannot do everything,” admits Erik. “F3 was the natural next step for Mito.ai; a hub where they can connect all those dots, in terms of competence, network, funding, good help and people who have expert knowledge in their fields, whether it’s IPR, finance or marketing.” There are four startups in F3, separated

from the bank by a suspended corridor and complete autonomy in their business dealings. They are not obligated to work with the bank in any capacity. Neither does NTNU Accel retain a stake in businesses developed in the incubator and any money invested in the startups is not tied to their membership. Chief Digital Officer at Sparebank 1 SMN, Knut Eilif Halgunset, believes this scenario is essential for a successful FinTech ecosystem in Trondheim. “By having an incubator so close to Sparebank 1 SMN we remind ourselves that the business we have been doing almost 200 years is about to change, and it is about to change quite fast,” says Knut. “Sparebank 1 SMN could have done this without NTNU Accel. We have a lot of money as a bank, but we could also have easily invested in the wrong company, or given them too much. If these ideas run as independent startups then they have to be clever. If we end up a customer, we are going to be a demanding Clockwise from opposite top left: 01.

customer… and if they want to be our customers, they have to show value.” The bank could potentially share contacts from their huge network, make masked data available for trailing of technology and could even become a pilot customer. Haakon Skar, CEO at NTNU Accel (which also has an eponymous cowering hub in the centre of town, and a renewables incubator WattsUp, in partnership with TrønderEnergi) wants the bank to be “a better pilot customer and to identify between fads and mega trends”. “Fads catch on really quickly and take centre stage, and hold everyone’s attention,” explains Haakon, using Facebook feeds to illustrate his point. “These are ideas that act like viruses. They are super easy to share and they seem to support our views of the world. If we disagree with the perspective that an idea presents, we just stop reading. We don’t talk about it positively or share it with others.” “Mega-trends take a little longer, they disagree with everything we believe about the world to be true, and so we refuse them for a very long time. But they happen anyway. That is why banks need to look through lots of ideas and consider whether this really makes sense for a client’s perspective. Does this really make economic sense? Even if it means killing our current business model.” This same is true of the startup ecosystem: new initiatives are supported and lauded for their newness, for their entrepreneurial spirit and endeavour. This is beneficial to sparking people’s interest in the startup scene, but there comes a point when enterprise should not be mollycoddled by the local network, but encouraged to try and fail and learn faster. Trondheim has had a noticeable lack of unicorns and billion dollar exits on the startup scene in recent years, which is surprising when considering the prestige of the research coming out of the university. The introduction of specialised hubs like F3, seeks to address this situation and marks a maturing of the entrepreneurial landscape in the region. “NTNU Accel as a general purpose accelerator was uninteresting for Oslo FinTech and Stockholm FinTech,” explains Haakon. “The advantage for a startup joining one of these specialised, more narrow focused hubs, is that they immediately get access to a wider international network, and more international opportunity.” Haakon believes the prestige of a successful incubator will inspire the startup ecosystem and deliver a greater level of competence, which will seep into the wider market in the form of CEOs, specialists and investors bringing their experience to other startups in different fields. “One of the most important things we can give the startup community is inspiration. People with success become sources of inspiration, talent and money for the next generation.” a THE EIGHTEENTH ISSUE

Rolling Back the Scrubs Words by Bradley P. Kurtz

Compassion and empathy are typically words one might use to describe a nurse. Those who know nurses also know they are strong. Monica exemplifies that both in her profession and personal pursuit of Roller Derby.

THE EIGHTEENTH ISSUE

M

onica Kristoffersen Skog is a nurse in the maternal and paediatric section of St. Olav’s hospital. She has had this occupation for around seven years now. At work she focuses on helping new mothers learn and adapt to the needs of their babies, such as breast feeding – she happens to hold a degree as a lactation expert. Outside of work Monica is known as Yoshi; a key member of the Nidaros Roller Derby team where she plays as a Jammer and Blocker. “I first got interested in Roller Derby while taking a road trip across the U.S. and watching a movie about roller derby. I thought that looked pretty cool and looked into it as soon 12

as I got home.” “I’d never roller-skated before, but getting involved in roller derby was easy. The sport is open to anyone who wants to join, it doesn’t matter what body type or anything – everyone can fit in. Roller Derby is one of the only sports which welcome people going through gender transition.” Since she first put on skates, Monica has travelled around the U.S. and Europe to compete in tournaments and play matches. “The best way to get involved with Nidaros Roller Derby is to just come along to one of our open training sessions. The next one is 11 September. We have about 50 members now, but are always looking to add more people.” a

Putting on the Gloves Words by Bradley P. Kurtz

Working with people who need a safe place, whether at a club or with immigrant youths, takes an individual who values those around them as global brothers and sisters. Luke and Tian use MMA as a tool to build bonds, not break bones..

L

uke Sebastian Santarelli works as a security guard, and Tian Olsen with unaccompanied immigrant minors at St Olavs Hospital. Though they work in different fields and come from different backgrounds, the two consider themselves to be brothers in arms. Together they train and compete in Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). Both guys travel around Europe to compete in tournaments and single bouts. Luke will be travelling to England this month to fight in what he hopes to be his last amateur match-up: “I’d like to do it professionally, and make it to the UFC.” If he wins in England it 13

could boost him out of the amateur ranks and into the professional sphere. For now, both are content training every day and working towards their goals; whether that be a career in the ring, or the mental and physical toughness and discipline that comes from training in MMA. “It’s a family at Trondheim MMA. That’s one of the reasons we do it; we’re here to make a family and a community.” For anyone interested in training in MMA, Luke had this to say: “Just do it. Come to an open training session or sign up for a class. I started when a friend dragged me to a class with him…and I haven’t stopped since.” a THE EIGHTEENTH ISSUE

Getting Out of the Echo Chamber An interview with Per Ananiassen, Theatre Boss of Avant Garden Words by Wil Lee-Wright

Avant Garden is planning to move to Rosendal Theatre. Why and when did you decide to change location? The current location used to be a print shop for the city’s second newspaper, Arbeideravisa, the workers’ paper which went bankrupt in 1990. Within five years of being in this venue, we realised that it was too small and so we started to look for a bigger venue in 1998. So Avant garden has been looking for a new location for the better part of twenty years?! You are now able to move because you have managed to double the theatre’s budget in the last three years, the majority of which comes from subsidies from the ministry for culture and by the region (Sør Trøndelag Fylkeskommune and Trondheim Kommune). Was the new funding specifically for the new location, or because of your increasing importance to the culture scene in Trondheim? It was both reasons. I think the Department of Culture in Oslo has started to acknowledge the need of the programming theatres to consolidate and to become stronger. To have stronger artistic proposals and departments, and also that we need infrastructure. After all, we represent the national infrastructure for independent performing arts in Norway. Self financing only makes up about 17% of our budget. Funding makes it easier for us to plan and also to build the organisation. Tell us more about the history of Rosendal you must be very excited to have not only found a venue which suits Avant Garden’s practical needs, but one which has a history and name behind it. It was a cinema built in 1921 by an American company. At that time, Trondheim was very small. Rosendal would have been well outside of town. There were cinemas in Trondheim but they were owned by the municipalities and it was illegal to have private cinemas. They called it Rosendal Teatro, not kino, because it was regarded to be a little bit more upmarket. I am actually proposing that we change our name when we move there. ‘Avant Garden’ can be seen a little bit pretentious because it is relating to the historical avant garde in the arts. I sympathise with the avant garde movement because it was about making art accessible everywhere, and we are working with artists which have this kind THE EIGHTEENTH ISSUE

of approach. Avant garde kind of means that you have been to some kind of promised land and you come back and tell. It is kind of old elite thinking in the arts. This was not necessarily intended by all artists in the historical avant garde movement, this is the way people regard it today: elitist. We don’t want to be that. Avant Garden does not want to be part of pop culture necessarily, but we use a lot of pop culture methods and media strategies. If you go to Rosendal, everyone knows what it is, where it is. It feels more accessible. We will still be what we are but we will be more than what we are. The audience size will grow from 66 today to over 200 (and 100 in the smaller space). How important is it to fill the space and how will you accommodate the more marginal artists who do not require larger audiences? There is some narrow art out there, people who are really taking big chances, experimenting with the new, something we have never seen before. Even I have problems understanding what they are doing, and I have been working in this business for a long time! I know that people have to have possibilities to show their art before they can develop. This is something we have to communicate to the audience too. Avant Garden has a reputation for being quite cutting edge and for pushing the boundaries. So what will we be seeing at this year’s Bastard festival? Anne Liv young; the way she is connected with the audience, which can be really hardcore and it’s really hard to be there. And Heine Avdal and Yukiko Sinozaki who are in our programme almost every year, who are super nice and super inviting. They are treating the audience with kindness and respect. In our time, that is also cutting edge! The bullies are ruining the world so some kind of inviting attitude and kindness and respect, can also be cutting edge. It is very much context which decides what is cutting edge. In all the Bastard Festival programmes I have been responsible for over the years, I have never looked for the politically explicit expressions or projects. There is a lot of discourse going on, but what I am interested in the is the political potentiality in performing arts. Performing art per se is a political expression, because it always points at the 18

nature of itself, namely the coming together of experiencing something together. Creating some kind of common platform and point of references so we can talk about something together. Today that is as important as ever before. Since this media revolution we have been though, we may have a lot to talk about but we talk about the headlines, but we do not talk about the depth of things. It is difficult to get out of the echo chamber. We are building walls and we don’t allow any cracks to exist in the wall, and we are trying to cover up any cracks which do exist. I want this art festival to be one of the cracks in the wall. To paraphrase the film maker Morten Torvik, every wall has a crack and this is where spirit can come in. Are other performances therefore more intense for the newcomer to the scene? No not necessarily. Another highlight is we are opening the festival with Mia Habib’s A Song To…, a Norwegian choreographer from Haugusand. In this production she is choreographing 40 people; 16 professional dancers and 24 more (regular people). All of them are going to be naked on stage. If you want to be part of that you can, if you are willing to take your clothes off in front of the audience! Are you asking me?! Well… can people still get involved? You will have to check the status of how many people are signed up. Also, on Saturday there is an Australian performer called Nicola Gunn with Piece for Person and Ghetto Blaster. She has made a production which is beautiful, fantastically well performed production. She tells a story while she is doing very intricate movements, very choreographed dance moves, and that the same time she is telling a story which raises some ethical questions. What is interesting is that on the one hand it is very experimental piece but on the other hand it is a very relatable story. The complexity comes from the movement she is doing combined with the story. For me, this is what Bastard festival is about. It is a chance too create a another way of reflecting. What you see is not always what you get in theatre. It is a visual art but it is only a tool for conveying something what is happening under the surface. a

“There’s nothing wrong with enjoying looking at the surface of the ocean itself, except that when you finally see what goes on underwater, you realize that you’ve been missing the whole point of the ocean.

Discovering the Flipside of Trondheim Words by Ida Bondø Lee-Wright

Photos by Hege Røkenes

In the last few years, Trondheim has seen a huge increase in the amount of people interested in exploring the underwater world. This has fueled the creation of Trondheim’s very first freediving club, Trondheim Fridykkerklubb, which is part of Norway’s National Athletes Union, Norges Idrettsforbund (NIF). THE EIGHTEENTH ISSUE

F

reediving is the art of exploring the underwater world with minimal equipment and supported by strong techniques. To many this is a totally new and unknown sport. It provides a beautiful way to further explore the Trøndelag region. If you only stay on dry land, you’re really only experiencing a small part of the nature which surrounds us daily. Most freedivers, when they reveal their identity as such, are immediately asked two questions: how long can you hold your breath, and how deep do you go? This is because for most people, they think only of the more extreme version of freediving, Apnea. Apnea is, in short, when you focus on holding your breath for a longer period of time while aiming to reach a depth goal. Most members 22

of Trondheim Fridykkerklubb however use freediving as a gateway to experiencing the underwater world in a more relaxed manner. A huge part of being involved in a club run on a voluntary basis is the social aspect, making new friends and finding like-minded individuals, who you can share your passion with, whether it is going on ocean safaris, taking underwater photos and videos, hunting or merely exploring marine biology. Here in Trondheim we mainly practice in a pool during the winter months. This allows for a few things when training: you do not need to wear a wetsuit, thus you do not need weights and are more likely to be able to gain better breath control and work on depth increases. Practicing without much equipment allows you to focus more on your body and

the signals it sends you, focusing on your heartbeat, pulse and going into a meditative state. As such, when the sea warms up and you get your gear on and dive in, you are much better prepared and can enjoy the underwater world and all it has to offer. In regards to the art of holding one’s breath, most people can easily train to hold their breath for a minute and a half after a couple of sessions with a qualified instructor guiding them. How long a person can hold one’s breath is dependent on many factors; cardiovascular health being one of them, physical build being another. The core factor, however, is technique training. Many who practice apnea find yoga and meditation helps them to reach their goals. There are different variations of the sport such as dynamic and static apnea, and Constant Weight (CWT). Dynamic apnea is when one swims, with or without fins, along the or slightly under the water’s surface. Static apnea is when one just floats face down in the water, slowing one’s heartrate and pulse in order to achieve the longest sustained breath. Within apnea, the discipline of CWT is practiced by taking a single breath then diving along a rope, with or without fins, trying to reach a preset or your deepest goal. People practice this without, or with either normal long free-diving fins or a mono-fin (they look like a dolphin tail). There are other variations of CWT and, as a matter of safety, CWT should be practiced only by experienced divers, and always under supervision or at a special apnea training course. Since freediving is a sport involving water, boats and the open environment, it should be practiced with close attention to safety, and with other people to keep an eye on you. Trondheim Fridykkerklubb always allocates a dive-leader who is in charge of tracking diver’s locations, time when starting a dive and when they last surface for safety, and for record keeping. We always go in groups of two or more who enjoy the same kind of dive so the temptation to solo dive is non-existent. Once the work of training and conditioning is done you’ll find a whole new world to explore in a variety of ways through freediving. The equipment that is typically needed here in Norway is a split 7-9mm wetsuit especially designed for freediving (this should always have a hood to protect your head from the cold!), socks, gloves, ABC gear (mask, snorkel and free-diving fins). Other than that, at least one of the group, if not all, should have a freediving buoy which you hook on to with a safety line, this informs boats that there are freedivers around and to stay away! A diving flag along with a knife for each freediver is also part of the safety equipment. Other than that you might find it useful to have a freediving computer so you can track your down and up-times, see how deep you have been and the conditions in the water. THE EIGHTEENTH ISSUE

We always travel with a first-aid kit, a phone in case of emergency, and use smart-phones to check tidal and current conditions before jumping in the water. An experienced freediver or an instructor can help you plan your dive. Freediving is all about learning to know your body better, finding out how you can push your limits and perception of what your body is capable of. It’s also an unique way to learn more about marine biology, and see first-hand how land-based environmental mishandling impacts and affect our seas. In Korsvika, for instance, we keep finding needles and cotton buds, the latter we can only assume has been flushed down the toilets and THE EIGHTEENTH ISSUE

made their way through the water treatment barriers and on into the ocean. We also regularly conduct under-water clean-up days, finding massive amounts of waste, ranging from golf-balls, to porcelain, linoleum flooring, bikes and all kinds of other trash. Being a freediver entails being a steward of and caring for the environment you dive in. The rule we practice is that you pick up whatever we find on the sea-bed, thus helping keep our beautiful underwater world clean for more than just aesthetic reasons. Norway is a country brimming with natural resources which allows for rich foraging and hunting, both above and under the 26

surface. Many freedivers enjoy being able to hunt for their own fish and seafood. Hunting in scuba-gear gives you an unfair advantage over your prey; hunting while freediving puts you on more equal terms. You’re in the fish’s world and they don’t need to go up for air! A freediver will then have to play the strategic hunter, mixing in with the surroundings and focusing in order to be able to hunt at all. A top tip, if you are keen on catching your own dinner, is that fish generally like areas with strong currents. But keep in mind that you’ll be fighting the natural environment. A spear gun or a sling are a diver’s most common fishing tools. Although, flounder and bottom-feeders can also be caught using only a knife, if you’re a pretty good freediver that is. Picking your own berries and mushrooms is a national past-time in Norway and there is no reason why foraging should only be kept above the water. Crab, is pretty easy pickings and can be found from about five meters and down. Crab is best in August and September when they have had the summer to feed and are full of meat, and much more tasty. Harvesting crab for just the claw meat is a nono, and taking more than you can eat is heavily frowned upon. Respecting the ecological balance of the underwater world is an essential element to being a freediver, and freediving in itself is a great way to create more social awareness of pollution and how it impacts the sea-life that live in this amazing world. If this has peaked your interest and you want to dive into exploring the underwater world, do get in touch with your local club to see what they have to offer. It’s worth noting that Trondheim Fridykkerklubb is run on a voluntary basis and we are so lucky to have passionate and committed freediving instructors. Our main aim is to encourage people, children and adults, to try freediving, learn if this is something for them and become a part of our community. a

Breaking Ground The History Beneath Our Feet Words by David Nikel

Recent archaeological finds are helping us all to understand what life in Trondheim used to be like, and just how important the church was to the community.

ou can’t have missed the excavation work taking place in central Trondheim these past few years, but how much do you know about what’s been going on? Grab a cup of coffee and get comfortable, because we have a fascinating story to tell. Trondheim may only be little more than 1,000 years old, but the curious thing is there are vast gaps in proven history. Much of our knowledge is actually based on Norse sagas and stories, which over the years have been blended with the truth and become fact in many people’s minds. 28

Take the very founding of the town for example. Most people believe that Olav Tryggvason founded Trondheim in the year 997, but some sources imply that merchants had settled here long before Tryggvason arrived. Very little survives from the early Middle Ages, as the predominantly wooden settlement was destroyed several times by fire. Excavations on sites believed to have been home to churches and palaces have raised just as many questions and answers, and unearthing the truth about Trondheim’s past remains an ongoing process. The city hit world headlines in late 2016 when archaeologists unearthed the ruins of St. Clement’s church, in which Olav Haraldsson was first enshrined as a saint. The sainthood of the former Viking King, and patron saint of Norway, played a major role in the introduction of Christianity to Norway. The remains of the wooden church were discovered by archaeologists working for the Norwegian Institute for Cultural Heritage Research (NIKU) and we spoke to Excavation Director Anna Petersen about the find. She has encouraged publicity about the discovery and was only too pleased to talk. “I don’t believe in hiding this from the public. It’s important to integrate the city’s residents into this despite them not being able to see inside the tent. We can always tell what we do and what we think we have found, even if we have to revise those opinions later. With this being St Clement’s Church and its connection with Olav, and everything that means, the interest has been huge.” The find was ranked in the world’s 10 most important archaeological finds of 2016 by Heritage Daily, and broadcast throughout the United States on Fox News. The excitement around the find was truly genuine. People knew of a St Clement’s church in Trondheim, but had expected it to be placed further to the north. In the 1950s a cemetery was found nearby and historians believed this would have been the site of the church, but it was never properly excavated. The regulations that require a thorough excavation on construction sites were only introduced in the 1970s. The recent discovery, on Krambugata outside the library, occured when the

foundations for a new office building unearthed traces of the site. These motivated the NIKU team to dig deeper and find more secrets of Trondheim’s past. In addition to a vast cemetery with hundreds of graves, the team discovered a remarkably well-preserved crucifix. “We just don’t know what we’ll find because there are very few church sites from this period that you can fully excavate. For example, we found this stunning crucifix, cast in bronze, just below the surface. A bishop likely wore it around their neck,” explains Anna. The human remains also teach us something about the importance of this site. Around 20 infants had been buried right up against the altar. Infant deaths, common in medieval times, were a problem for the church, as they could never be sure if the baptism had gone as it should have. Burying an unbaptised child would – in the eyes of the church – contaminate the rest of the cemetery, so infants were usually buried in other places. “Our best guess is that long after the church had gone out of use, parents knew what this place had been and felt it was important for them to get their children as close to the holy place as possible,” says Anna. It seems likely that the church was destroyed several times by fire. After the church was destroyed, it was sealed with sand from the nearby beach. This was then used as a foundation for a wooden floor, with stone construction coming much later. The sand gives further proof that the area around Krambugata and Søndre gate was once by the riverside. The land was a protruding sand area, and just a few metres to the west was water. This inlet was probably quite deep, and it was likely the harbour where Olav Tryggvason built his ship, if the sagas are to be believed. As work nears its end, the team are entering everything into a fully digital documentation system. In line with Anna’s wish to share the work with the public, the team are sharing 3D models of artefacts via their Facebook page. Once everything has been documented, the site will become a construction site for a new building, but the remains of the St. Clement’s churches will remain.

“When we found the churches, it was decided by the Directorate for National Heritage that this church should be preserved. This area will become a museum in the cellar of the new office building that will be built here. Once ready, we will return everything we have found to show the full remains in one of the churches. It would be too difficult to show all four, as they were built on the same site,” says Anna. This will most likely be done in a similar way to the ruins in the library building, and at the Archbishop’s Palace Museum near Nidaros Cathedral. Archaeologists from NIKU are working on a dig at Torvet, Trondheim’s market square, before the square is revamped with the aim of becoming the city’s number one meeting place. The new-look square will feature a stone floor and lots of new public seating, but will still be suitable for concerts, festivals and other events. More information on the plans can be found at torvetitrondheim.no or on the information boards around the square itself.

Beneath the surface there are traces of several hundred years of city life. Once the building work starts, archaeologists will be on hand to make sure any finds during that process are saved. The medieval city of Trondheim lay between the Nidelva river and where Nordre gate stands today. The land at Torvet and to the west was simply farmland. The development of Torvet was a good example of how a town expanded in the post-reformation time. Much of Trondheim was rebuilt following a destructive fire in 1681 and the new city was laid out according to the plans drawn up by General Major Cicignon. The open public square and wide Munkegata axis drawn between two important points - Nidaros Cathedral and Munkholmen Island - mirrored the fashion of the time, most notably from the city of Versailles, which was undergoing expansion around the same time under the watchful eye of Louis XIV. From ancient fields came a new urban area that evolved into a craftsman’s district. Archaeologists have uncovered a very well-preserved floor that contains the foundations of a smith’s workshop. There are also finds that suggest that bakers, weavers and chefs lived in the area. Several waste pits were found, and these contained a lot of animal bone and pottery from the 1700s and earlier. More analysis on these finds should reveal who lived here, what economic group they belonged to, what they ate and even what animals were kept in Trøndelag during the 17th century. Underneath the 19th-century cobblestone layer, there lies a thick layer of almost pure grey sand holding animal bones and ceramics rich for analysation. What more secrets lie under Trondheim’s central district? The good news is that before any construction work can take place in the protected historic area, an archaeological dig must first take place. Perhaps we’ll unearth even more churches, artefacts and buildings to tell the story of ancient Trondheim, or perhaps these stories are simply lost forever. a

130 Years of Trøndersk Husflid

THE EIGHTEENTH ISSUE

In 1920, three female school teachers set out to complete the laborious task of uniting Trøndelag around one common regional folk costume, known in Norway as the bunad. Almost a century later, Husfliden in Olav Tryggvasons gate custom makes around 300 Trønder bunads a year, resulting in the soon-to-be 130-yearold handicrafts shop being bigger, busier and more buzzing than ever.

n Norwegian homes, there are now more than 2.5 million bunads worth over 30 billion kroner, according to The Norwegian Institute of Bunad and Folk Costumes (NBF). And if there is one designated place for bunads in Trondheim, it is Husfliden, where the tailoring of the Trønder bunad is the bread and butter of the business. “We have seen an increase in the interest in bunads in the past ten years, and especially in the last five years the demand has been booming,” says Vibeke Furu, general manager of Norsk Flid Husfliden in Olav Tryggvasons gate 18. “All materials are hand cut and sewn in-house from locally sourced fabrics, and our trained tailors specialise in bunad sewing, assuring the highest possible quality and handiwork. The bunads we produce are always tailored specifically to the person who orders it,” she explains proudly. Since the remodelling of the shop six years ago, the sewing room has been situated above the actual shop, making it easy for anyone interested in purchasing a bunad to inspect, touch and get expert guidance on all possible colours, patterns and stitching available – seven main variations, to be exact – before deciding on their ideal, individual Trønder bunad.

bunads have developed from being the traditional Sunday best clothing of our ancestors to becoming the go-to festive garment of our time, encompassing both local traditions, Norwegian materials from start to finish and craftsmanship of the utmost quality. Or more correctly; crafts-womanship, as the bunad is among the intricately handmade items growing out of a centuries-long tradition of “woman crafts” taking place by fire places and under candle lights at Norwegian farms. “Women’s history and women’s role as producers of culture have often been forgotten and undervalued, unfortunately. Women tailors have traditionally been given the title ‘sewing ladies’, undermining the incredible talent and knowledge of historical crafts traditions these women inhabit. Luckily, this seems to be changing,” Vibeke says optimistically. To illustrate that, she points to an information pamphlet Husfliden recently developed telling the story of the Trønder bunad, honouring and acknowledging the work done by the three women; Ragna Rytter, Kaspara Kyllingstad and Ingeborg Krokstad. These women tirelessly walked from house to house searching through old chests of

07

drawers aiming to collect pieces from old, hand-stitched bunads and folk costumes. Their goal was to find the common denominators that eventually would make up a common bunad for the whole of Trøndelag. In 1923, the Trønder bunad was first presented, and a few decades later, in the 1960s, the complete costume as it is known and loved today was a reality. At Husfliden’s upstairs sewing room, the eight women employed for their unique knowledge and love for bunad tailoring are still making the Trønder bunad after the same patterns – with millimetre precision. There is rarely a quiet moment this time of year, as autumn is the time to order a new bunad in order to give the tailors enough time to finish it by the time of year dubbed

“More people are seeing the value of husflid, and it has become a passion for many men and women” it comes from,” she underlines, adding that also the male bunad has seen an increase in popularity in recent years.

“bunad season”; springtime, and particularly May, when most confirmations, graduations, weddings and ceremonies usually take place. And, of course, the 17th of May, which is the day to look forward to for all bunad enthusiasts. But why, then, is the century-old garment still so popular in 2017? “I think it has to do with identity; people want to show that they belong to a certain place. Bunads are symbols that get people talking and connecting. It represents your heritage, and wearing it really does something to your posture and way of carrying yourself,” says Vibeke. “For many it is important to have the same colours and patterns in their costumes as their mothers and grandmothers. That said, it is also common to wear inherited bunads, which is something we at Husfliden also really encourage. Our tailors can alter any bunad, no matter where in the country 37

130 years of husflid in Trondheim “Husflid” can be directly translated to handicrafts and is a diverse term referring to products made using old techniques originating from Norwegian farming communities of the late 1800s. The term is relatively young and the way we utilise the word today can be dated back to the writing of Henrik Wergeland from around 1830. Women around the farms first sold their knitted, sewn and crocheted mittens, socks and blankets to each other to make ends meet. Eventually, they set up small retailers here and there as a side income. These were the predecessors to the Husflid shops that still are around today, explains Vibeke, adding that the Trondheim branch of Norsk Flid Husfliden likely is among the oldest of its kind in Norway. Still today, the shop buys hand-knitted and crocheted clothing directly from women around the country, including Selbu mittens and bunad stockings for the men’s bunads. Hence, giving a platform to women’s traditional crafts is still the very backbone of Husfliden’s business model and value system. That locally produced goods of high quality and tradition are experiencing a renaissance, both in food and drink culture and clothing and handicrafts is something that Vibeke and her colleagues notice daily. “More people are seeing the value of husflid, and it has become a passion for many men and women,” she says. This begs the question: what lies in the future for the vigorous 130-year-old Trondheim institution? Husfliden’s general manager has the answer ready. “Our most important task is no doubt to continue to carry forward and nurture our old crafts traditions and the values that underpin our shared cultural heritage, and never compromise on the quality of our products. That is what is Husfliden always has been and always will be about!” a THE EIGHTEENTH ISSUE

As much as I love the city of Trondheim, it is the surrounding nature that amazes me. The contrast of the mountains to the green hills of farmland and the fjords, and add to that the ever-changing weather and seasons. How could you not get inspired as an artist? Which Norwegian artist/event/space inspires you?

I’m afraid I’m not too acquainted with the Norwegian art scene yet, but I have been admiring the work of Håkon Gullvåg, in particular, his portraits. As for the most inspiring space, I’d have to say our family farm in Hemne is my biggest inspiration. The peace and the way of life that has survived through centuries, it’s very calming. Another place is the recycling centre at Heggstadmoen. For one, the work that they are doing is inspirational in itself, but I also see so many cool photos and art projects hiding in the recycled material. Where is your next destination?

As I’ve been travelling non-stop for the last few years, my next destination is home for the foreseeable future. I must admit though that I’ve already started planning my next trips, I’d love to go to Morocco and Iran. Notes to self?

Today you’re playing the second biggest stage at Pstereo. One year ago, you didn’t even exist as a band yet. How does it feel? Ola: [laughs] It sure feels good to exist!

Photo by Gry Dahl: Pom Poko staying well fed backstage at Pstereo. From left to right: Jonas Krøvel, Martin Miguel Tonne, Ragnhild Fangel and Ola Djupvik.

How did you start out? Jonas: I was asked to play at this literature festival by a friend of mine. I already had this noise trio with Martin and Ola, and we invited Ragnhild along on vocals for the occasion. Together, we figured we’d give a shot at playing some punk rock. Martin: At some point, we realized we needed to write actual songs. Jonas: Yeah, we basically wrote our material while practicing for the show. Ola: Right after that show, the same night actually, we went to back to the music conservatory where we’d been practicing, hid from the security guy and recorded a demo for Trondheim Calling. The deadline for that was two days later. We found a band name on Wikipedia, and the rest is history!

You’ve all played in different bands before. How did Pom Poko break the mould? Ragnhild: I think it’s because we weren’t that ambitious. There was no pressure, allowing us to just write songs we think are fun to play. Martin: Fun can mean a lot of things, but for us it’s about writing and playing music that keep us energized. We also write our songs together, so we all get a say in what works and what not. Ola: We’re also first and foremost a live band. It’s incredibly fun for us to play on stage, and I think our audience appreciates that. Martin: At our last couple of shows, I’ve actually tried to see just how far I can push myself to the brink of falling off my own drum stool. There’s a revolving door of musicians coming to Trondheim, starting bands then moving on to bigger cities. Does that leave us with a definable scene at all? Martin: There’s a scene, but it’s hard to define. It’s small, with a lot of musicians from all sorts of genres meeting each other, so it’s very dynamic, and it keeps renewing itself. Maybe it would be nice with more of a constant core, but a lot of them do stay and keep doing their thing. What sort of places can the scene gather around? Ola: Obviously Blæst was an important hub. Maybe it’s more centred around the academic institutions right now? Ragnhild: Though, one of the best things 43

about Trondheim is that there’s still a lot of low-key spots where you can discover new talent. Ola: It’s actually even harder for new bands in Oslo. There’s a lot of venues, but no natural places for new bands to meet. Also, it’s almost impossible to get a decently paid gig when you’re starting out. Over the course of a year, you’ve been Urørt finalists, played most major Norwegian festivals and got signed to an international booking agency, all with just two official singles out. Is the music industry alive and well? Ragnhild: [smiles] It worked for us! Martin: It is an industry, and a business above everything else. Naturally, that entails people that might be ideologically different from us. But we’ve been lucky to meet some great people along the way, so we’re not as sceptical towards industry types as we were a year ago. Ola: We were also very lucky with our timing. I think we came along with something that was kind of uncool, but just at the right time, and somehow got accepted for that. Three out of four in the band have moved to Oslo. What does Trondheim still mean to you? Ragnhild: I’m still very fond of Trondheim. If we hadn’t started out here, we probably wouldn’t be where we are now. Ola: I don’t think I’d be comfortable with anybody associating us with an Oslo scene, although it’d be mathematically correct. We’re still very much a Trondheim band! Any essential stops to visit when back in the old city? Everybody: Istanbul! Martin: That’s our favorite restaurant. Anything that’s in the vicinity of our old school really. Not many people know this, but there’s actually a great Thai cantina on the top of Olavskvartalet! There’s also a family-run guitar store nearby that I love, Falck Musikk. Ola: Also, whole wheat scones from Rosenborg bakery! Pom Poko have a busy fall ahead of them, with a new single out in September along with shows in London, Berlin and Copenhagen.

it is easily accessible. Let us take you on a journey into the mountains, a trip across the fjord, walks in the woods, and strolls along seaside. In this edition of The List Looks Outside, we don hard hats with headlamps and delve into the depths of magical Olavsgruva, near Røros.

Olavsgruva CHISELLING OUT THE MEMORIES OF ORE HUNTING Words by Jennifer Wold

It is not secret that all over the world there are mines. Often when decommissioned they become attractions for the public to see where metals and minerals come from, and the methodologies for the collection and processing. These decommissioned mines also become spaces where rock climbing, rock concerts, serious ‘spelunking’ and in the deeper caves with water, swimming, can be found.

THE EIGHTEENTH ISSUE

Humanity has been questing under the surface for ores, minerals and gems for centuries. Røros was an active mining community for 333 years before operations shutdown in 1977. Today, there are many opportunities to experience this unique town and its history. Northwest of Røros you can find Olavsgruva, the second oldest mine in the 44

area. It was established in 1940 and was in operation until 1972. Prime Minister Oddvar Nordli inaugurated Olavsgruva as a tourist and learning centre in 1979, and since millions of visitors have taken the plunge into its depths. The entrance to Olavsgruva is through Nyberget, another mine, which was opened in 1650 and operating on and off for almost 200 years primarily for its copper. Røros, sometimes called Bergstaden which translates to “the rock town”, is well known for being a UNESCO World Heritage Site, home to the Southern Sami and where they herd their reindeer, and for one of Norway’s big mining communities. Røros for copper and Kongsberg for silver. Common to what might be assumed, many people do not know the mines in Røros can be visited. Olavsgruva is situated under Nyberget, is the size of nearly 22 football pitches and, at its deepest, is 60 meters under the ground. The entrance to Olavsgruva is through Nyberget, and although they share many of the same ores and minerals, hydrated ferric oxide, molybdenum disulphide, cobaltite and bismuth have only found in Olavsgruva. The methods to excavate the two mines were also rather different; Nyberget was worked by the gruelling method of hammer and chisel, while in comparison to more modern machinery such as air-compressor drills in Olavsgruva. Another difference is the size discrepancy between Nyberget and Olavsgruva, the latter being 24 times bigger. Throughout you can see the rails snaking through the tunnels which used carried the mining carts brimming with ore, machinery still in the places it stood when the mine closed, and support structures. Perhaps one of the most beautiful sites are different ores which are still visible, such as copper veins oxidised to a brilliant aqua against the rich brown stone around it. Olavsgruva can be visited by the public from daily until 11 September through 31 May, when it is only open on Thursdays and Saturdays. The tours last a little over an hour, all ages are welcome, but make sure to dress warmly as the tunnels are humid and around 5ºC year-round. There are no services for those with limited mobility to enter the mines or for prams. a

COOLIO COMETH

The programming board has done its best to bring in speakers that cover a wide array of topics in regards to this year’s themes of artificial intelligence and machine learning The speakers also represent development work happening both near and far. TDC has said that the number and quality of submissions for presenters were very high, meaning those attending the conference are going to be hearing from a very deserving group of presenters. One of the strengths of TDC, besides its community planners, is that it holds its attendees and partners to a high standard of professionalism as they want to provide a welcoming and supportive environment which combats bullying, discrimination, and harmful stereotypes of who can or should be a developer or working in technology. The Code of Conduct on their website is very detailed in how it expects the community to conduct itself to promote a healthy and fun environment through a mentality that can be carried forward into everyday life. . —jw

n his most recent release, Kill Again, you can hear an updated but the recognisable West Coast, raspy style of Coolio. His January 2017 release is taking an unequivocal stance on racial tensions and police brutality in the United States. The album that he is rumoured to be working on will continue to focus on the current climate of civil rights. Coolio has never shied away from using direct language as an artist in his genuine portrayals of his Compton upbringing. Coolio is most recognised for his 90s catalogue of music including Grammy-winning Gangsta’s Paradise, funktastic Fantastic Voyage, his acting career and trademark hairstyle.

48

Although Coolio took a tenyear hiatus from 1997 to 2006, when his albums sales declined, he has since maintained a relatively regular album release. His music still samples other known hits, carries smooth backup vocals and his classic 90s G-Funk vocal bounce that stands in welcome contrast to the current barrage of trap style so prevalent on the radio. It is no doubt that the 50-year-old rapper will have plenty of fans singing along at Verkstedhallen 12 October, his second stop of a three-city tour in Norway. Currently part of the I Love the 90s, a concert series originating in the US, it is evident Coolio has no intentions of leaving music anytime soon. —jw

Literært Kollektiv, the organizers of the festival, wish to convey literature and its messages through both traditional and non-traditional forms. Litterært Kollektiv is an independent, student based organization, which works with literature and culture. The group works to make events across established arenas for literature, art, and music. The goal is to visualize the diversity Trondheim has to offer, as well as create a platform for both new and established voices. It is their belief that literature is a useful and important tool for understanding people and society. Throughout the five-day event there will be a number of events held across the city; from slam poetry contests, to telephone booths that when you pick up the phone you hear poets on the other end of the line.

festival is the opportunities to learn and experience literature in a multitude of forms and styles. Numerous discussions will be held with topics such as exploring whether, by writing, man can protect itself from an overwhelming inner or outer world. Do we write to escape

reality, or do we write to console ourselves with it? Silje Warberg, Associate Professor at NTNU, and lecturer in Nordic literature Ingri Løkholm Ramberg, to approach this through their professional perspective. Ugress offers a unique opportunity to participate in panel

iving in a world where many women are still fighting to be safe, heard, and valued, it’s high time we celebrate those women who are putting themselves out there and use music to share their ideas and experiences. One such celebration is Feminalen, a festival that centres on talented women in the music industry. With concerts, films, and debates, Feminalen aims to showcase and promote role models, encouraging girls who might be interested in the music industry but are not sure if they’ll find their place. When you think about prototypical female music genres, your mind might be drawn

to the girl groups for the late nineties, but that means you are missing out on a whole host of bands and experiences. Have you ever heard of Japanese metal idol band BABYMETAL, for example? Still, despite more and more women trying to make sure their voices are heard in the music industry, most of the big festivals have a long way to go when it comes to featuring female artists. Feminalen makes an effort to change this. Their goal is to make sure there is a sense of balance in the music world. After all, the more different voices that speak up and the more different experiences are shared, the more varied the musical landscape will become. And isn’t that the goal of music?

This fourth instalment of Feminalen promises to be another fantastic one. If this sounds like a cause you want to support (and honestly, why would you not?) you can of course attend the festival itself, but Feminalen is looking for volunteers who want to help out during the various concerts and seminars as well. Check out their website for information on how to sign up. Beth Ditto already knew what it was all about back in 2006: It’s part not giving in / And part trusting your friends / You do it all again / But you don’t stop trying! So what are you waiting for? On October 28th and 29th, head to Byscenen to support a good cause - and rock out all the while! —avdw

ulturnatt takes place for the fifth consecutive year in 2017. Each year, the interest from both organizers and audiences has increased and on Friday 15 September, over 60 organizers will participate with a total of 200 events around the city. Kulturnatt was organized for the first time in 2013. It started as collaboration between established cultural actors in Trondheim, the festival and event office in Trondheim municipality and Midtbyen Management. THE EIGHTEENTH ISSUE

Kulturnatt wants to stimulate the cultural curiosity of everyone in Trondheim. They also aim to create a meeting place for cooperation between different cultural communities, both among well-established actors and newcomers. But above all it is a chance to explore Trondheim through its rich cultural life! Some of the highlights the organizers of Kulturnatt recommend are: • 50´s party at Nordenfjeldske Kunstindustrimuseum 20.00 - 00.00 • Fight night by Jack & Jones: 50

or the 22nd year in the row, Trondheim Kammermusikkfestival, or Chamber Music Festival, will take over concert halls, cathedral, and even several living rooms of Trondheim. This year will be a celebration of the Norwegian Society of Composers’ 100th anniversary by presenting works by Norwegian composers and hosting a workshop for young composers. Did you know that you can host a concert in your living room? It is a little late notice to become a host this year, but you can apply next summer! That is a part of festival’s wish to explore the interaction between music and other media and senses – architecture and everyday life’s settings in this case. Of course, it is also a way to go back to the roots and beginnings of chamber music and its characteristic conversational aspect where one musician with her instrument introduces a melody and after that other instruments respond with a similar motif. That also explains festival’s motto “Listen with care!” as chamber music requires gentle handling and close attention not

Every other October for the past 100 years UKA has been painting the city of Trondheim red. This year’s festival is sure to be one to remember. —bpk

FESTIVAL only to musical details, but also to intimate conversation between musicians and audience. And the attention is well worth it! Kammermusik festival brings world famous living composers to town for each of its editions. So far it has hosted such extraordinary composers as Steve Reich, James MacMillan, Sofia Gubaidulina, and Maja Solveig Kjelstrup Ratkje. This year’s festival composer Sally Beamish fits nicely into the line of internationally renowned composers who have visited Trondheim over the years, and as many as 19 of her works are presented in the festival’s program. Among the festivals artists in 2017, you will find the Chilingirian Quartet, the Trondheim Soloists, Trondheim Symphony Orchestra, Wolfgang Plagge, Vladimir Mendelsohn, Joseph Breinl, Trio Isimsiz, Christianne Stotijn, Marianne Thorsen, Øystein Sonstad and Francois Kieffer. Ever since it started in 1993, the Trondheim Chamber Music Festival has aspired to expand the genre’s space, tear down walls and dismantle prejudices.

s the long nights descend once again there is no better way to embrace the change than by spending four days in the mountains scaring yourself. Ramaskrik Horror Festival, held in Oppdal, provides the opportunity to do just that. Oppdal being, perhaps, the best location for a horror film festival in the country. The sleepy little village tucked away in the mountains holds an incredible atmosphere; on October nights it can certainly feel like the setting of a classic slasher film. 2017 marks the seventh year in a row that Ramaskrik has brought this unique festival concept to Norway. Last years festival screened more than 70 films and short films, and this year’s promises to deliver an ample schedule of screenings – enough to keep any fan captive. From the classics that brought us nightmares on Halloween as kids, to zombies, hauntings, psychopaths, and the odd horror-comedy thrown in for good measure. Keep up to date on Ramaskrik’s website for the updates on the festival program.

Compliments of the Chef: To Rom og Kjøkken

02

In this section we challenge one of our Food and Drink chefs to create a recipe which reflects the magazine’s theme and/or season. Good food, beautiful food, does not have to be a challenge and these culinary masters want to encourage your creativity and inner foodie. Bon appétit!

O 03

le Martin, head chef of To Rom og Kjøkken, is proud of his profession and crafting delicious meals with the food he can find “from the fjord to the forest” as he puts it. From the first time he followed his father into the bakery, smelling the fresh bread and seeing cakes come to life, he knew this was the world for him. At 19, he had his first chance to eat at a Michelin Star restaurant. “I say it was the first ‘real’ meal that I have ever eaten. And I thought, yes, this is my way.” Ole Martin has not been chasing a star of his own; he is too busy focusing on delivering that level of quality to his patrons. However, he is aiming to be in the Michelin guide for what he loves to do most and for his flavourful, innovative dishes which reflect not only himself but the region. Ole Martin is very passionate in his encouragement to buy directly from the farm and make use of what this vibrant region has to offer.
