13/01/2020 INLAND: o3 + Aviva Endean

Four accomplished soloists from across the globe join forces to create rich and detailed landscapes of expansive textures. Featuring Norwegian percussionist Ingar Zach, Italian flutist Alessandra Rombolà, Spanish accordionist Esteban Algora, and Australian clarinetist Aviva Endean, the ensemble create their music with improvisational and compositional parameters side by side. The ensemble emerges from a spontaneous meeting in Madrid where Aviva first worked together with the well-established o3 trio. Drawing on their shared backgrounds in improvisation, contemporary classical music and experimental practice the ensemble worked together to develop a unique language of subtle virtuosity, breath inflections, shifting accents, and fluctuating drones with a keen attention to group interaction and long-form structures to create lush and hypnotic sound worlds. 

O3 works across musical genres having  worked with Merce Cunnigham Dance Company, the norwegian experimental circus company Stella Polaris and with the musicians Jane Rigler (USA, flute), Kim Myhr (NOR, guitar) and Jim Denley (AUS, sax/flute). Their debut album: “…de las piedras”, was released on the english label Another Timbre in 2007 and received excellent reviews.
