The Norwegian Radio Orchestra will perform 2018's Ambivalence live at new festival Oslo Classics next week.
First up is a four-track EP, titled γ, out early in the month. It'll be followed by the 12-inch, Ambivalence Remixes, on which Prins Thomas and Bjørn Torske reinterpret two tracks from Hayashi's 2018 debut album.
Before that, the Norwegian Radio Orchestra, AKA KORK, will perform Ambivalence live next week. The performance is part of a new festival called Oslo Classics, which aims to "push the boundaries of pop and classical music with the help of a symphonic orchestra." The 45-member string orchestra performs every year at the Nobel Peace Prize Concert, in addition to other concerts and commercial recordings. Carl Craig will also perform live with KORK at the festival, which takes place on August 30th and 31st at Oslo's Salt.
