Nils Bech has devised his own unique path as a persuasive performer through the world of contemporary art. A classically trained singer, he decided to siphon the best of the two worlds of music and art. With sax-player and producer Bendik Giske, Bech has co-written songs his critically acclaimed solo debut titled “Look Back,” which was released earlier this year. Through his collaborations with Bech, Giske has become a renowned producer and performer of electronic music.
Bech has also sourced material from classical and popular music to deliver poignant comments on the contemporary art world. His performance of Tina Turner’s “Private Dancer” at the Interview magazine party at Art Basel Miami turned the art fair into a scene of prostitutes hustling for money, while his song “Vagabond Girl,” based on Agnes Varda’s “Vagabond,” was a tribute to Norwegian artist Ida Ekblad, his friend and colleague.
