Concert is a band consisting of three artists – Chris Evans, Morten Norbye Halvorsen and Benjamin Seror – whose visual practices often meld their penchant for music and their feeling for its potency. Sentimental disco propped up by convoluted electronic drums, a reincarnated analogue bass and the vocals of a self-styled chanteur, make up Concert's first record Behave Like an Audience.

This recently released 10-inch vinyl from Sternberg Press consists of songs composed and performed by Concert to lyrics written by the artists Guy Ben-Ner, Mariana Castillo Deball, Dexter Sinister, Patricia Esquivias, Sharon Hayes, Hassan Khan and Michael Portnoy. This project was commissioned and produced by curator Mai Abu ElDahab, as a collective endeavor born out of her five-year tenure as Director of Objectif Exhibitions in Antwerp.

On their first US tour in Summer 2013, Concert will be performing live at Kadist in San Francisco on June 22, Redcat in Los Angeles on June 25, Aspen Art Museum on June 28 and Artists Space, New York on June 30.
