Therese Aune (NO) plays dreamy filmatic music, drawing inspiration both from pop music and classical minimalists. She herself plays piano and sings, but she usually plays concerts with violin (Hanna Furuseth), cello (Kathrine Schiøtt), accordion (Ida Løvli Hidle), tuba (Heida Karine Mobeck) and drums (Hans Hulbækmo). 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 at times can be rather massive, it never turns bombastic. There is always room for little details, playfulness and improvisation within the arrangements. Aune also has a characteristic and expressive voice. When the different personalities of the band come together, they form a unique common expression. So far the music has taken Aune to festivals like By:larm (NO), Popkomm (DE), Berlin Festival (DE) and Iceland Airwaves (ICE). Last fall she brought her band to a studio and recorded an album together with the Icelandic producer Mio Þórisson (Owen Pallett, Bonnie 'Prince' Billy). She is planning to release it in 2012.
