"A friend of a friend of mine had a conversation with his father while driving from one place to another.
He asked him what he would want to be in his next life. The father said "I want to be an eagle". Shortly after this, his father passed away. While standing by the grave, saying goodbye, an eagle flew over them, circling once, then continued towards the mountains in the horizon. This is the story about "Majestet", which was the song that triggered this album, 'GLIMT' " Petter

Crackling drum machines, an old -and slightly out of tune piano, Petter's welcoming voice, and Vera, an old nylon stringed guitar, built in 1948, create the frame of the album.
Petter was born in Alta in December 1979. His debut "You Go Bird" was released in 2009, followed by "Clocks Don't Count" in 2011, and "Sirens" in 2014. After a whole lot of touring around Europe in general, the Netherlands and Germany in particular, Carlsen has expanded his watershed.
He has toured/and tours together with Pil & Bue (NO) Anathema (UK), Long Distance Calling (GER), Tim Christensen (DK), Steven Wilson's Blackfield (UK) and Unni Wilhelmsen (NO)
Petter is also a member of Pil & Bue and Julietnorth
