Hedvig Mollestad with Cortex

Artist in Residence

We are looking forward to experiencing another side of Mollestad in the company of the deeply rooted bopcore gang in Cortex

Teatret Vårt (PLASSEN) 380,- fees incl.

Since 2007, like a recurring annual cyclone, Cortex has ravaged large and small places in Norway as well as Europe, with his well-articulated, high-octane and disheveled waltz between postbop, free jazz and modal audacity.

In his lifetime, Cortex has released the records Resection (2011), Gothenburg (20xx), Avant-Garde Party Music (2017), and Legal Tender (2020), as well as a number of live records. As the name (and previous record releases) suggests, they have a flair for structural exploration and the interaction of the senses with the function of the brain, which is evident in several of the record releases' thematic structures. Thus, they are just as skilled at creating journeys in images as they are in sound.

Previously, Cortex visited Moldejazz in 2011, so the time is getting ripe for a reunion. When Cortex played at the Blow Out festival in Oslo in 2022 and Hedvig Mollestad performed as a guest, the road to proposing a collaboration was short. The concert received good reviews from, among others, Arild R Andersen.
