Biography

Therese Aune (NO) plays dreamy filmatic music, drawing inspiration both from pop music and classical minimalists. She herself plays piano, harmonium and sings. When performing, she is accompanied by a little orchestra consisting of violin, cello, accordion, tuba and drums. Together they create evocative soundscapes that can be subdued and quiet, but also grow big and heavy when they need to. All though the music can be massive, it never turns bombastic. There is always room for little details, playfulness and improvisation within the arrangements. Aune is also known for her characteristic and expressive voice. So far the music has taken Aune to festivals like By:larm (NO), yafestivalen (NO) Popkomm (DE), Berlin Festival (DE) and Iceland Airwaves (ICE). Last fall she and the band recorded her debut album together with the Icelandic producer Mio risson (Owen Pallett, Bonnie 'Prince' Billy). It is to be released in Norway through Riot Factory Nov 9th 2012.

The band consists of:
Hanna Furuseth (violin)
Katrine Schitt (cello)
Ida Lvli Hidle (accordion)
Heda Karine Mobeck (tuba)
Hans Hulbkmo (drums)
