MAGNE FONN HAFSKOR // KNUT SKODVIN - KONDENS
Musician, composer and producer Knut Skodvin (b. 1951) lives in Bergen, but grew up in Høyanger. He started playing the accordion at the age of seven, and has the double bass as his main instrument. Played in the Stavanger Symphony Orchestra already in his gymnastics days, and after several years in the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra (1975–1980), he started as a musician (1980) and musical director (1986) at Den Nationale Scene in Bergen. In 1982, he released one of the early minimalist electronic recordings in this country, Kondens, a record that goes for a scant ten thousand Swedish kroner spent on LP. With him on the album he has John H. Gaasland, Sissel I. Andersen and Olav Dale. He has since composed music for around 50 theater and TV productions, two musicals, a ballet and a stand-up show (Thomas Giertsen). In 2022, he came out with the album Political Dancefloor, where he mixes recordings he made in Zambia during a longer stay in the African country.
