Kalv welcomes RAGE Thormbones!
The 2020 Kalv festival is proud to announce its next participating ensemble, the American trombone duo RAGE Thormbones!
RAGE Thormbones consists of Weston Olencki and Matt Barbier and they will travel to Kalv not only with their virtuosic and cross-disciplinary sound world, but also with their relentless musical ear which promises to provide an exuberant mix of both electronic and acoustic delights! They will also be a part of this year’s international composition academy and therefore reside in Kalv prior as well as during the festival. To be able to host residencies for both musicians and composers is a way of building bridges and sharing experiences cross cultures, countries and artists. It is also a way of providing a space for future collaborations.
RAGE Thormbones are invited as a part of the project Drones and performing arts in Kalv, a project which is supported by Swedish Performing Arts Agency and the region Västra Götaland.
