Pantha Du Prince is preparing to unveil a new project at Norway's Oya Festival.

Releasing 'Black Noise' last year, Pantha Du Prince seemed to tap into a whole new well of emotions. A highly regarded producer, his new work appeared to match his electronic nous to something rather more organic.

Since then, Pantha Du Prince has played shows across the globe before releasing a new remix album. Now the producer has unveiled plans for a special collaboration with composer Lars Petter Hagen.

The pair have been working on a project named 'The Bell Laboratory' which will be unveiled at Oya this summer. Based in the Norwegian city of Oslo, the festival is close to where the germ of the project took seed.

Panthu Du Prince (Hendrik Weber) visited Oslo last summer, and struck up a partnership with Lars Petter Hagen. Using a total of 64 bells, the pair will be backed by four percussionists at their Oya performance.

The premiere of the new work will be held on August 11th, marking a unique opportunity to hear two very distinct artists working together.

Meanwhile, the line up for Oya continues to grow. The Oslo festival will play host to slowcore legends Low, who recently returned with one of their most vital, invigorated albums for a decade.

Elsewhere, Okkervil River will play a typically stark, emotive set which will be followed by performances from The Antlers, Glasser and more. Quite some bill, especially when previously announced acts such as Kanye West, Pulp and Fleet Foxes are taken into consideration.

Tickets are on sale now.

Oya runs between August 9th - 13th.
