Magne’s first ever solo gig in the UK coincided with an exhibition of Payne’s Gray at Paul Stolper’s gallery.

Magne was chosen to open the Carnegie Art Awards event with a live performance, during which he premiered three new songs from his forthcoming solo album.
Magne, Nils Petter Molvaer, Raymond C. Pellicier (a.k.a. DJ Dark Norse) and the ice-sculpting group “Minus” performed twice on February 13, 2004 as part of the Lillehammer WinterArts Festival.
Magne was asked to perform his new single ‘Dragonfly’ at the annual HitAwards ceremony in Oslo, after Savoy – who were originally scheduled to perform – could not get out of New York in the aftermath of the September 11 tragedy.
