Hilde Marie Holsen avsluttar sin master i utøvande musikkteknologi denne våren med eit prosjekt for trompet og elektronikk. Trompeten sine lydar vert prosessert i sanntid gjennom elektronikken, og skapar med dét varierte lydlandskap i eit improvisert samspel mellom det organiske og maskinelle. Hilde Marie Holsen.

Time is a blind guide
Ensemblet kombinerer en stryketrio med en pianotrio og en slagverktrio i en kammermusikalsk drakt. Den engelske pianisten Gareth Williams spiller sammen med ensemblet. Han har jobbet med internasjonale storheter som Art Farmer, George Coleman, Bud Shank, James Moody og Dave Liebman. Time is a blind guide har høstet flere anmeldelser. Her er noen:
Kate Molleson/ The big Issue:
Think of the best kind of inventive, tuneful Nordic jazz.
The jazz breakfast:
Very beautiful and thoughtful writingby Thomas Stronen for an Anglo-Norwegian ensemble curated by Fiona Talkington, and featuring voice, piano, cello, drums, double bass, violin and Hardanger fiddle (On list of 10 best concerts for 2014)
The jazz man:
What was most impressive was the way that the strings were seamlessly integrated in to the music, Railton and Okand were at the very heart of the band, this was no “jazz with strings” project with the violin and cello some kind of an add on....... This was music that ebbed and flowed, the whole greater than the sum of the parts but between the extensive written sections there were also opportunities for the individual musicians to express themselves...Successfully blending of jazz, classical and folk elements Time Is A Blind Guide was very different from anything else we’d heard..
John Kelman/ All about jazz:
...demonstrated that he's as capable of wonderful writing as he is boundary-pushing improvisation...Even in the freest contexts, Strønen has always demonstrated a very particular sense of focus and construction, so the opportunity to hear him work in a more structured environment only served to support the sense that he is truly capable of anything.
