Podcast: Harbour Foxtrot

The Harbour Foxtrot is a sort of documentation of some time spent both performing and observing an area, things found there, conversations and reflections. I am trying to “choreograph a podcast”. The main character is the gramophone Columbia Grafonola 201 found along with stacks of old 78 records in the library of The Maritime Cultural Heritage Centre, Akershusstranda, Oslo. As it happens, a lot of the cruise ship tourists passing me by on their way to the centre, are the age that they remember this type of gramophone from their childhood.

Among the records, foxtrot music prevails. And we imagine dance parties in the harbour long ago.
