Orgelnatt - Organ Night - is a concept where Nils Henrik Asheim invites guest musicians to create a concert event around the organ, exploiting the instrument's abilitiy to create vast soundscapes. By help of time and space, we invite the audience to submerge in sound. Orgelnatt has since 2013 been hosted by Stavanger konserthus. From April 2016 Orgelnatt also is travelling to new places, first to Bodø Cathedral.
