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.

Moskus: Mirakler

Read "Mirakler" reviewed by Gareth Thompson

Not every picture paints a thousand words, but some are more symbolic than others. Take the cover of Moskus's new album, which depicts a hip young hiker facing a two-horned beast in the wilderness. But is the animal real, a mere figment, or even an applied image? And what of that rock pile between them, painted ...

In 2007, drummer Øyvind Skarbø asked fiddler Nils Økland if the two could form a duo to play a concert series Skarbø ran. Økland agreed if they could be joined by keyboardist Sigbjørn Apeland a collaborator ...
