Silent Fires

Silent Fires is a cross-genre intermixture of lyrics and acoustic-electronic fragments, all merged into written and improvised soundscapes. Their debut album #Forests is a collective exploration around the theme of spirituality in its multiple meanings.

The band reunites four young emerging talents from the European improvised music scene: singer Karoline Wallace, trumpeter/soundscaper Hilde Marie Holsen, violinist Håkon Aase and pianist Alessandro Sgobbio.

Silent Fires performs and improvises on stage with contemporary dancer Synne Garvik, offering a multi-art experience of improvised music and realtime choreography.
