Horisonter (Horizons) was a series of five concerts and a collaboration between trumpeter Arve Henriksen and percussionist Eirik Raude. Each concert took place at different buildings designed by the famous Norwegian architect Sverre Fehn. Photographer Knut Bry documented the concerts. Both the images and recordings of these culminated in an installation at Design and Architecture Norway (DogA), inside a structure by architects Magne Magler Wiggen og Hallstein Guthu, based on old concept drawings by Fehn.

Fehn was obsessive about the potential of buildings to create new horizons in nature, and occupy the space between heaven and earth. Our catalogue for the installation at DogA, as a part of the Ultima Oslo Contemporary Music Festival, is based on the notion of new horizons and also references the actual structure for the event through transparency and folded paper. This created a visible horizon across the cover, intersecting images and creating distinct layers, but also formed a useful grid for the layout of the document.
