Silje Nes er musiker, sanger og multi-instrumentalist. Hun har gitt ut platene "Ames Room" (2008) og “Opticks” (2010), begge på FatCat Records. Hun er klassisk skolert pianist, men på albumene spiller hun selv alle instrumentene, fra xylofoner, cello og klokkespill til gitar, vokal og elektronikk. Hun er nylig tilbake til Berlin etter en lang turné i USA og Mexico og spiller denne kvelden en nedstrippet og eksperimentell solo-konsert på Volt.

Nes’ songs filter the steady repetitions and gradual transformations of minimalist music through the aesthetics and instrumentation of bedroom electronica and dreamy indie rock … " (Pitchfork, 7,3/10)

It’s an album with its own strongly beating heart … It encapsulates every season, every landscape, every pace." (Consequence Of Sound, 4/5)
