Family day at BEK with Borealis
Bring the whole family and join us at BEK for an afternoon of sonic experimentation on Sunday 19 March! This event is presented in collaboration with Borealis – a festival for experimental music.
Family day programme
11:30: Doors open
11:30–16:00: Open house with Sonic Loops workshop. Free, drop in. All ages welcome.
12:00–13:00 and 13:00–14:00: Lydlagerlaging workshop with Kjersti Alm Eriksen – tickets here (100,– per child, free for families with Aktivitetskortet). Recommended age 6+.
Drop by BEK to explore sonic loops, and different ways to make them using rulers, crayons and magnetic tape on reel to reel recorders extending far into the building and back again. Or sign up to take part in artist Kjersti Alm Eriksen’s workshop making tiny fallible sound making robots out of every day objects. Even if you’re not taking part in a workshop there’s plenty of room for colouring and space to roll around for the smallest, and lots of coffee and waffles for those who need it.
Stop by to explore the universes of sounds at our fingertips!

Kjersti Alm Eriksen
Kjersti Alm Eriksen holds a BA in design from the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam. Her interest in performance and installation brought her towards the performing arts, and in 2019 she graduated from the Oslo National Academy of the Arts with an MA in Theatre, specialising in Scenography. She works with a variety of experimental dance and theatre projects, often in places unusual to see these practices, as well as with solo projects within Fine Arts. In a constant dialogue with the past, present, and future of a site, Kjersti’s work explores the mechanisms of everyday life through the movements of objects and their interaction with their surroundings.
