Madrugada in Hamburg

2022 April 4th

From the Europe final concert of the exceptional Norwegian band MADRUGADA in the Hamburger Fabrik. Here are pictures of the great concert with my iPhone & HIPSTAMATIC. I think the pictures tell their stories about this great singer SIVERT HØYEM with his warm, touching voice in wonderful harmony with the musicians of his band.

 

MADRUGADA, these are:

SIVERT HØYEM

FRODE JACOBSEN

JON LAUVLAND PETTERSEN

and with

CATO THOMMASSEN

CHRISTER KNUTSEN.

 

Thank you for these unforgettable moments!

Just click on the video and when Sivert Høyem starts to sing, start the slideshow. It can run automatically with a click. But just watching also the respective video is recommended!

I LOVE THAT AN IPHONE ALLOWS ME TO GET OUT OF THE STANDARD PHOTOGRAPHIC THOUGHT PROCESS. AND I´M ONLY FOCUSING ME ON THE SUBJECT. WITH THESE PICTURES I WANT TO SHOW THE WONDERFUL MUSIC WITH MADRUGADA AND THE AMAZING VOICE OF SIVERT HØYEM.

12. September 2022:

VESTERÅLEN PROJECT VOL. 7. is now up on YouTube! This time our flagship song, STRANGE COLOUR BLUE, gets the special Vesterålen treatment. Filmed at Rødbrygga, the local pub in Stokmarknes, this is exactly the kind of environment where we would have our first handful of gigs in the mid 90s. As usual, recorded live with great help from the local folks, directed by Eivind Holmboe. Big thanks to everybody who came out for this. Feel free to comment, like and share — We hope you enjoy our little film!  Text: MADRUGADA

DREAMS AT MIDNIGHT

Listen, view and enjoy!

With this song *DREAMS AT MIDNIGHT* the photographer forgot to take many photos while listening. That's why it's worth here to enjoy the wonderful video from the great *MADRUGADA Vesterålen Project*. A treat for eyes and ears! :-)

STABAT MATER

Listen, view and enjoy!



Kerstin was unable to photograph the songs *CALL MY NAME*, *WHAT'S ON YOUR MIND*, *BLOOD SHOT ADULT COMMITMENT KIDS* and *VALLAY OF DECEPTION* for very mundane reasons. She hopes so much that MADRUGADA will allow her to do this at a later date. Preferably in Norway on the Vesterålen. That's quite a big wish. :-)

Call my name


What´s on your mind



BLOOD SHOT ADULT  COMMITMENT KIDS

VALLAY OF DECEPTION


THESE LAST FOUR TRACKS OF THIS GREAT CONCERT, UNFORTUNATELY WITHOUT PICTURES OF ME. - THANK YOU FOR THIS WONDERFUL MUSIC AND THIS LISTENING PLEASURE! LISTEN AND ENJOY!


Besides the iPhone pictures, here are a few pictures of the great song *MAJESTY*. They were taken with my Nikon D800 and my beloved Nikkor 85mm.

 

MAJESTY

Listen, see and enjoy!

And another very special video from the *MADRUGADA Vesterålen Project* to enjoy. It reflects what I love so much about this music. This elemental connection between the land, the people and their music, which is able to touch you deeply!

And I slipped in two pictures that belong to a different song. I like her a lot though! :-)


An unforgettable experience to see the band I have loved for so long live with my camera. I was allowed to photograph the first three songs  - *NOBODY LOVES YOU LIKE I DO*, *RUNNING FROM THE LOVE* & *SLOWLYTURNS THE WHEEL* and hope to do more in the near future.

 

And I'm happy to show you some of these photos taken with the Nikon. Just look here ==>

My big wish to portray the band in their home country is pretty high on my agenda. The photos I took here are mostly portraits of the band members associated with each song.

 

Anyone who knows me knows that I like to tell picture stories. The exceptional singer SIVERT HØYEM makes it very easy for me to portray him. Also on stage he tells stories in great acoustic harmony with his wonderful band MADRUGADA. These are with him Frode Jacobsen andJon Lauvland Pettersen and with them: Cato Thommassen and Christer Knutsen. The band's stage presence is unique.

Support for MADRUGADA

A one take video of our song Darling West by the great photographer Johan Nord. Audio by the equally great Herman Kvelprud. 



Thank you MADRUGADA and DARLING WEST for allowing me to experience and photograph it!


on my own account

All songs of the videos of the bands MADRUGADA and DARLING WEST shown here are of course also part of my iTunes media library. For me it is natural to honor the artistic work of all musicians in this world, whom I like to listen to a lot in this way!
