Meet composer and musician Ruth Bakke and visual artist Anne Marthe Dyvi in our new podcast getting to know the people behind the music at Borealis 2021.

Ruth Bakke has composed for everything from brass bands, chamber music, and other orchestras and has been the organist at the Norwegian Church in Storetveit just outside of Bergen for 45 years. She has a fascinating story with studies in the USA in the 60’s and 70’s and a background in elite sports. Anne Marthe Dyvi holds an MA from the art academy in Bergen and has a special interest in technology and time, human existence, survival, and behaviour.

In this episode presenter Christiane Meldgaard speaks to Ruth Bakke and Anne Marthe Dyvi at a sound studio in Bergen, and hears how they met and how in their new collaborative performances for Borealis their cross disciplinary combination of experimental organ music and video projections come together in one piece to be performed in a spectacular church space.
