Kunsthall Stavanger welcomes Julianna Barwick

Kunsthall Stavanger is excited to collaborate with Folken to present Julianna Barwick this Thursday.

Louisiana-bred, Brooklyn-based recording artist Julianna Barwick crafts ethereal, largely wordless soundscapes, all of which are built around multiple loops and layers of her angelic voice. Barwick, who credits a rural church choir upbringing for her unique sound, begins most tracks with a single phrase or refrain, then uses a loop station and the occasional piano or percussive instrument to build the song into a swirling mass of lush ambient folk.

Doors open at 8 pm. Concert starts at 9 pm. 18 years.

Ducktails is coming to Kunsthall Stavanger!

Join us this Thursday for a live concert with Ducktails as part of our new Kunsthall Live series! Ducktails is an American band formed in 2006 as the solo recording project of Real Estate's former guitarist Matt Mondanile. The project has since become a full band, adding Josh da Costa (bass), Malcolm Perkins (guitar) and Ross Chait (drums). 

Following a number of limited-run cassette releases, the 2009 albums Ducktails and Landscapes brought Ducktails critical recognition. The project was associated with the mid-2000s hypnagogic pop scene. They have released three studio albums since then, most recently St. Catherine in 2015.
