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:
JON LAUVLAND PETTERSEN
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!

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

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! :-)
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. :-)
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.
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.
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!
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!
