The pianist and composer MØRK is a melody-maker. He tells gripping stories without words, using his mechanical piano. The Norwegian word «Mørk» translates as «Dark» in English.

Mørk is from the island of Senja, which lies in the northern part of Norway. His musical influences range from Esbjørn Svensson Trio, Nils Petter Molvær and Motorpsycho to Deep Purple, Kraftwerk and Americana.

«I allow myself to predict great recognition in the coming years»

Mørk is currently touring with a stunning visual set made by lighting-designer Torbjørn T. Sandnes with material provided by filmmaker Carl Christian Lein Størmer and Mørk himself.
