After meeting in the fall of 2015, the members of BRINICLE quickly discovered their common interests in the energy and dynamism expressed by avant-garde improvisers and the exciting instrumental colours suggested by post-rockers, and began to make music that meets somewhere in the middle. BRINICLE is an Oslo-based improvising trio comprised of Mike McCormick (CAN) on electric guitar, Håkon Norby Bjørgo (NOR) on upright bass, and Michaela Antalová (SVK) on drum kit and percussion. All highly dynamic and thoughtful instrumentalists, their performances can be unabashedly chaotic, introspectively calm, and anywhere in between.
