“Verdensrommet” (Outer Space) – Åge Aleksandersen’s workroom
Some of Norway’s best rock songs have been written in Åge Aleksandersen’s workroom, “Verdensrommet”.
“Verdensrommet” is a converted garage once located at Åge Aleksandersen’s former home at Flatåsen in Trondheim. When Åge sold the house, “Verdensrommet” was bought by two investors in order to ensure that ownership could be transferred to Rock City. Åge’s workroom and all its contents now belong to Rock City, and are of crucial importance when telling the story of rock music from Trøndelag.
When visiting “Verdensrommet”, you can try your hand at songwriting and also have the opportunity of putting your work to the test in the studio and perhaps even on the stage?
