Three years after the critically celebrated ‘Steamdome II: The Hypogean’ made its indelible mark on Norwegian music history, Kvernberg elevates his ensemble with 60 musicians from the Trondheim Symphony Orchestra. He ignites the graviton train and aims to propel us into the stratosphere – Beyond The End, without travel insurance, but accompanied by a select group of Norway’s most innovative rock and jazz instrumentalists, with a finely honed symphony orchestra at the helm.

A Symphony of Equals 

With ‘Beyond the End,’ Kvernberg has crafted a deeply personal opus that, more than ever, showcases immense versatility and an unwavering determination to push musical boundaries. The result is a 62-minute genre-defying journey where Kvernberg invites the classical tradition to a modern dance among electric tempests and symphonic adrenaline rushes, breakbeats, synthesizers, timpani, flutes, and electronics at an unparalleled level. As Kvernberg himself notes: — Many crossover projects see bands borrowing symphonic elements, yet it remains a rarity to find symphonies where both band and orchestra contribute equally vital roles

A 62-Minute Listening Feast 

Far from the polished, one-minute bangers crafted for an impatient audience, ‘Beyond The End’ unfolds as a symphony in three movements. Could this be the work that resonates across arenas and festival grounds for years to come? Incorporating the progressive, danceable club aesthetic that has become a hallmark of the Steamdome universe, it stands at the heart of this double album, proposing a fusion that just might capture the imaginations of listeners far and wide.

‘Steamdome III: Beyond The End’ premiered as the closing concert to over 3000 attendees at Olavsfest in Trondheim, Norway, with the festival’s overarching theme being “trust” — The diversity among the performers in this mega-project reflects the unexpected yet delightful range of our audience: spanning from 20 to 80-year- olds, encompassing all shapes and sizes. Whether this journey sends your glasses flying, brings warmth to your cheeks, or stirs up a storm within you, rest assured there’s someone on stage riding the same wave of emotions as you. ‘Beyond The End’ offers a mosaic of experiences, ensuring there’s a piece of the puzzle for everyone to connect with. It might sound ambitious – but then again, it is!
