Norhern Winter Beat, , Aalborg, Denmark
Punkt is an internationally renowned festival started in 2005, curated by Jan Bang and Erik Honoré. In addition to the annual main festival in Kristiansand, Punkt has visited 27 cities in Europe, Canada, China and India with its unique Live Remix concept: All concerts are immediately deconstructed/reconstructed by electronic musicians, often in collaboration with traditional instrumentalists. This electronics-based creativity, unfolding there and then, is a central feature of the festival concept. Among the international participants and guest curators through the years are Brian Eno, Laurie Anderson, David Sylvian, Jon Hassell and John Paul Jones.
