Concert stunt at Bryggen

Concert stunt at Bryggen

On August the 31st 2012 the autumn rain cleared away, and allowed me to take my clavichord for a concert stunt at Bryggen. As I expected, it was a real challenge to capture the concentration of the passers by – not a little is needed for listening to a clavichord! Still several people stopped and payed attention.
As the clavichord is an instrument that doesn’t in any way bother your  next door neighbor, I had to use some amplification for my outdoor playing. This might have lost me some of the extreme intimacy that otherwise constitutes a vital clavichord quality.

Also here I experimented with apperances: First I played in my everyday clothes, before changing to a baroque dress. As at the Hanseatic Museum, the dress seemed to draw attention, but people who were really interested in the music would stop anyway.
