Norwegian-German saxophonist Bendik Giske has likened his art to the one of a machine, but, still, through his music - most recently his second solo album, 2021’s ‘Cracks’ - there is vulnerability and endurance abound, especially when considering how these themes tie into Giske’s statement of queer performance art. In his version of musical machinery, the human body plays a pivotal role too - and not only for the breath strength required to master the instrument. In his music, artificiality, biology, and movement blend into a luxurious combination, truly brought alive in a live performance setting.
