Karoline Wallace - vocals Hilde Marie Holsen - trumpet, effects Synne Garvik - dance Håkon Aase - violin Alessandro Sgobbio - piano Born in Oslo at the Norwegian academy of Music (NMH), Silent Fires reunites four bandleaders from the european improvised music scene: singer Karoline Wallace, trumpeter Hilde Marie Holsen (Hubro Records), violinist Håkon Aase (ECM) and pianist-composer Alessandro Sgobbio. Their cross-genre intermixture of lyrics and acoustic-electronic fragments – merged into written and improvised soundscapes – investigates 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 is presenting their new album “Forests” (AMP Music & Records) with release shows in France, Germany, Italy, Norway and Portugal. A very exciting musical excursion with very talented people. A wonderful collective. Tor Hammerø / Nettavisen (Norway) This is music with a great sense of musicality and sophistication. Percorsi Musicali (Italy) Outstandingly beautiful recording. Silent Fires deserve acclaim for it. Gapplegate Music Review (USA) A profound and unique album. Silent Fires is a band like no other. Juan Hitters (Argentina) A timeless surprise that shall be referenced as a golden, treasured classic in the future. Nite Stylez (Germany) An album full of suppleness, inventiveness, emotion, abstraction and sensuality. Captivating.
