Here we are: it’s the end of December and the last time I will be hosting this challenge that I started 3 years ago.
The temporary moustaches of November are finally out of fashion and this month it is full-grown beards – preferably grey/white – coupled with big fat bellies and red costumes that are trendy. Enough talk. Here’s the gallery with some of my favorites from this month:
Of course I also had to post something for Version 2 this month. I arranged an intimate house concert in my apartment. The concept is inspired by Sofar Sounds (Sofar – SOngs From A Room). If you don’t know Sofar Sounds, but you’re into music, I suggest that you look it up because it’s really cool. There’s a lot of musicians that wants to play at Sofar gigs, so even if you’re accepted as an artist to perform, there’s a long waiting list. I thought: “Why wait for Sofar Sounds? I’ll just arrange it myself instead”.
First I asked my friend Sjur if he could perform 5 of his songs, which he gladly accepted. Then I heard Synne when we both played live at the same stage about a month ago and I loved her music. She also gladly accepted my request and on the 15th of December we were 18 people enjoying live music in my apartment. I’ve made this clip with one song from each artist. Give it a listen and please support my music by downloading my EP (links under the video).
Live music in my apartment/V2:
You can buy (or stream, but buying is better – then I’ll make a small amount of FIAT money) my music on Google Play, Spotify, Itunes, Amazon Music, WiMp/Tidal, Shazam and other platforms. Search for “Mads Bjørkli” or “Knuste Hjerter EP”.
