Trondheim Voices and Mazur/Gustavsson/Balke “Improvoicing”

Three of our most interesting Nordic improvisers have composed music for eight Norwegian vocal improvisators!

The composers Mats Gustafsson, (Sweden) Jon Balke (Norway) and Marilyn Mazur (Denmark) are all unique within their style in the Scandinavian Improv-Scene, both as composers and performers. In this concert each one have composed a peace for, and with, the singers.

What the press says about ”Improvoicing”

“…Trondheim Voices set new standard for vocal presentations […] Mats Gustafssons piece is a revelation […] Trondheim Voices impressed…”
(Jazznytt, July 21st 2009)

“…Trondheim Voices gave the most extraordinary experience so far, with their mind blowing performance of three compositions”
(Dagsavisen July 21st 2009)

“…The singers impressed with their well rehearsed performance, singing the challenging pieces of lyrics, music, harmonies, rhythm with precision and authenticity”
(Dagbladet July 21st 2009)

“…From the ice cold to the including. In total a triumph for the specter and duality of the human voice […] each singer is good, but it is as an ensemble they really shine. Trondheim voices show a limitless openness and expand the definitions of the vocal role. This makes them excitingly unpredictable, it sharpens the senses and it’s a joy to listen to.”
(Adresseavisen July 17th 2009)

“…Improvoicing is a wonderful contribution to a yet unexplored field in the jazz; the vocal ensemble”
(Moldejazz, 2009)
