Shining perform "I Won't Forget" at demolition site for their own studio!

Shining performing their single "I Won't Forget" on location where their studio and rehearsal rooms are being torn down to make apartments, along with fifty other studios.

Shining think it's a pity that another building with arts and music are being torn down, and are fighting to keep the creative environment alive in these buildings. "In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends." (Theo C.) We won't forget the silence of the government with this case.

The clip is filmed in one take without any editing. Audio is recorded with only one stereo mic for the band and one mic on vocals and sax. It's as real as you get.

Produced and directed by Jonas BĂždtker for NRK P3 as part of the series "P3 Spanderer"

The band commented:
We just posted a fun little video we did with NRK P3 (Norwegian National TV), and though you might want to see it! It was filmed in one take with only three mics (we usually use 25), with no editing and no mixing. Straight ahead! What you see is what you get. But we think it's still pretty cool! 

The reason we chose this location is that this is the buildings where Shining's studio and rehearsal rooms have been for the last 7 years. As you see, it's all about to be torn down and/or converted into apartments, just like they do all over the city now, since investors earn much more money on building apartments than preserving cool buildings with arts and music.

And concluded:
PS: The government (Byutviklingskomiteen, Oslo Kommune) will look over the case for these buildings on Wed Sept 18th to see if they have allowed too many apartments in this case. They promised a limit of 20% back in 2009, but fucked it up by mistake when writing the regulations for the area. Let's hope they can get this case back on track, as they meant it to be! Munkeby has written a letter asking them to straighten things out once and for all. Concluded.
