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.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
