Consert Isfjord Radio; Music for Isolation

A very special and intimate concert experience – music created out of loneliness and isolation. Music for Isolation is a Tokyo-based duo, featuring Japanese and British musicians Rie Takeuchi (baritone saxophone) and Gideon Juckes (tuba).

The duo describes their music as a cross between folk music, improvisation, tradition and innovation.

On Saturday 8 June 2024, the acoustic tones from Music for Isolation meet our guests at Isfjord Radio, Norway’s most isolated wilderness hotel. If you have already booked a stay at Isfjord Radio this weekend, look forward to it. Want to experience the concerts? We have a few places available.

Music for Isolation took shape during the pandemic. As a result of descent and isolation, Rie and Gideon met in a musical form that was characterized by loneliness. They have now released three critically acclaimed albums, been on international concert tours and contributed theater and film music.

What started as a creative project in isolation is today a collaboration on music that is characterized by the search for silence in life. An escape from the hectic, a mental space. We are looking forward to experiencing Music for Isolation at Isfjord Radio, a place that just gives us a breather in everyday life.

In the afternoon we light a fire and listen to the duo. In the evening we get to meet them for a concert after dinner.

“A thoroughly absorbing experience…gently resolute in its dark tonality even as it releases you ever further from a tethered sense of time and place. The tracks echo with haunting thoughts of loss and faded memories…superbly realised”.
(Iwan Fox, 4 bars rest)
