21-22 April 2016 Nasjonal Jazzscene Karl Johans g. 35, Oslo

Tape to Zero is a mini festival with a focus on contemporary jazz, electronica and ambient music. We’ll be presenting electronic and acoustic projects from a range of different musicians. The main idea is to present both familiar and unfamiliar faces on the same stage, with fresh projects and a unique musical expression. The music includes the experimental and the challenging, as well as more accessible and melodic works. There’s something for everyone and anyone who has an open ear.

Tape to Zero is arranged by Kjetil Husebø and Hilde Marie Holsen.
