Oak & Shaw (DK) 12:00 – 12:45
Oak & Shaw consists of Kaja Mærk Egeberg (NO) and Tobias Shaw (DK), who together produce organic, electronic indie pop music. Their music examines the encounter between the digital and the analogue, and the sound moves through dark forests and open fields. Clear melodies and poetic texts are challenged by electronic beats and samples of everything from fir cones to sheep.

Founder of the French band “Vortex” (Les Disques du Soleil et de l’Acier) with Sonia Cohen-Skalli in the early 90’s, Nico Guerrero is an experimental guitarist and composer living in Paris and in Reykjavík, working on the electro-acoustic possibilities/transformations generated by electric guitar.
