Immagina un istruttore di aerobica in una tuta - quasi futuristica - delle stazioni spaziali degli anni ‘60, con una “M” gigante sullo sfondo, fatta per ipnotizzarti - come Zoolander nel completo di Mugatu. Oppure, se sei abbastanza grande da ricordarlo, come una bambola Rainbow Brite degli anni ‘80 che prende vita.
Milkywhale è una ciotola di Skittles mescolata a otto espressi doppi e guarnita con la smania di ricevere un cucciolo e un tappeto elastico per Natale.

Milkywhale è un duo electronic pop: Melkorka Sigríður Magnúsdóttir (cantante/performer) e Árni Rúnar Hlöðversson (produttore, FM Belfast). Originariamente, il risultato della loro collaborazione doveva essere una performance di danza. Da allora Milkywhale ha suonato in diversi festival tra i quali Roskilde Festival, Sónar Reykjavik, Reeperbahn, La Mercé Bar- celona e Canadian Music Week.

ALMA’S CLUB

Nel 2016 abbiamo inaugurato la Club Session; un programma musicale minuto che indagava la musica accentuandone la componente performativa. L’anno scorso, all’interno del Club, c’era John the Housband, la band di Alma Söderberg e dei suoi amici, che apriva la serata con un ukulele e cantando “Here we are, John the Housband, we’d like to sing songs for you, but we’re a bit shy to do, we’ve travelled from far, to bring sunshine in your heart, can I go home with you?” ed è stato subito chiarissimo che sì, doveva assolutamente venire a casa con noi e per ampliare la nostra casa le abbiamo chiesto di curare il programma musicale di quest’anno. E così la Club Session è diventata l’Alma’s Club: “to bring sunshine in your heart”.

Imagine an aerobics instructor in a 1960’s quasi-futuristic space station jumpsuit, with a giant “M” in the background meant to hypnotise you - like Zoolander at the Mugatu compound. Or, if you’re old enough to remember, a Rainbow Brite doll from the 80’s come to life.
Milkywhale is a bowl of Skittles combined with eight double espressos, topped with the mania of receiving both a new puppy and a trampoline on Christmas morning.

Milkywhale is an electronic pop duet: Melkorka Sigríður Magnúsdóttir (singer/performer) and Árni Rúnar Hlöðversson (producer, FM Belfast). Originally, the outcome of their collaboration was intended to be a dance performance. Since then Milkywhale has played at festivals such as Roskilde Festival, Sónar Reykjavik, Reeperbahn, La Mercé Barcelona and Canadian Music Week.

ALMA’S CLUB

In 2016, we’ve initiated a Club Session; a tiny music programme investigating music by accentuating its performative feature. Last year, within the Club, there was John the Housband -Alma Söderberg and her friends’ band- who opened the evening with a ukulele and singing “Here we are, John the Housband, we’d like to sing songs for you, but we’re a bit shy to do, we’ve travelled from far, to bring sunshine in your heart, can I go home with you?” and it was immediately clear that yes, she absolutely had to come home with us. Thus, to expand our house we’ve asked her to curate this year music programme. So the Club Session has become the Alma’s Club: “to bring sunshine in your heart”.
