An unconventional quartet born at the Norwegian Academy of Music in Oslo, Silent Fires consists of four young bandleaders from the European improvised music scene: singer Karoline Wallace, trumpeter Hilde Marie Holsen, violinist Håkon Aase and pianist Alessandro Sgobbio.
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. Silent Fires performs and improvises on stage with contemporary dancer Synne Garvik, offering a multi-art experience of improvised music and realtime choreography. The band will present their new album on tour in France, Germany, Italy, Norway and Portugal.
