BRINICLE is an Oslo-based improvising trio comprised of Håkon Norby Bjørgo (NOR) on upright bass, Mike McCormick (CAN) on electric guitar, 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. After meeting in the fall of 2015, they 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.
Swiss musicians Rea Dubach and Laura Schuler are following their distinct way in music. They stretch the borders of their instruments and generate a musical language which is hard to categorize. Both embrace naiveness and allow emotions and humanity in music to happen. True improvisers, they meet each other in tender worlds, in wide spaces but also in ominous darkness. Surely this is an encounter that will take the listener on a journey!
