Brass band fixations

The first episode of the Norwegian documentary series Korpsfiksert (Band fixated) was shown on NRK TV a few days ago, and is now available on NRK net-tv. The 8 episodes follow members of Eikanger-Bjørsvik Musikklag from 2011 until their participation in the European Brass Band championships in 2012. By focusing on the contexts behind the music for band members, director Anne Marie Kvassheim is making an exotic behind-the-scenes experience available to a wide audience. I look forward to seeing the rest of the episodes in coming weeks.
Bravo, Anne Marie!
