9 Beet Stretch has been presented as installation, ½ concerts, otherwise segmented concerts or in parts at various venues, like at Alte Oper, Frankfurt (during Musikfest Nachmittag eines Fauns); Echoraum, Wien (during Shut up and Listen! – Interdisciplinary Festival for Music and Sound Art); Ny Carlsberg Glyptoteket, København (during Slow); [ars]numerica, Numerica – European Center for Digital Arts (2007), Montbéliard; Jetlag No. 4, Pact Zollverein, Essen (2009); Norwegian Sculpture Biennal 2006, Vigelandsmuseet, Oslo; Spark Festival of Electronic Music and Art 2006, Minneapolis; Brakstad Konsept, Oslo (2002).

Every concert of 9 Beet Stretch is very much a coopartion with venue and curator. 9 Beet Stretch has been installed in a wide range of spaces, from bedroom to huge industrial halls like the Kupfer Ironworks, and churches as the 11th century Bergen Cathedral (Borealis). In any space, good contemplation furniture makes a difference, and a venue would be greatly benefited by having a split between a dedicated listening space and a lounge of sorts where people can talk and socialize.

Future options I am looking at would be to work with light design (like the Hyperkinetik Video Machine by Alfredo Salomón), and / or furniture design, and / or set design, and / or choreography to make an extended experience out of a 9 Beet Strech concert.
