Norwegian composer Øyvind Torvund (b. 1976) played guitar in rock and improvising groups alongside regular musical studies in Oslo and Berlin. His music assembles disparate materials and inconsistent attitude: sounds from rock or from everyday life (or nature) occurring in chamber music, simplicity in a complex context, improvisation coexisting with exact notation, music combined with film or projections, seriousness in counterpoint with humour.

His work Neon Forest Space will be performed by Distractfold in "Nordic forests" at 6:00 and 9:15 PM on 29 September.
