One of Ekkos main ambitions is to present new, unique artistic compositions and installations, specifically designed for the festival. One of this years productions is the collaboration «Krom» - where sound and light meet and the boundaries between a concert and an installation disintegrate. Three exciting artists with different artistic backgrounds make this site-specific installation which will only be on display once during the festival.
