The location for this track is in the very heart of Oslo. After the terror 22.July 2011, wandering the streets of the city was a way to take back our freedom, manifest our presence and also grieving over the ones we lost that day. On this very spot it feels like the buildings, concrete, traffic and the humans vibrate together, it makes me connect to both the past and the present and represents a physical and mental place to be.
