Vilde&Inga is a young string duo playing acoustic free improvised music, featuring violin and double bass. By exploring nontraditional approaches to the instruments, the duo greatly expands their timbre palette. The wide horizons of colour allow the music to develop slowly and organically, yet with a keen underlying sense of compositional form.
Vilde Sandve Alnæs and Inga Margrete Aas are classically trained musicians from Norway. They started to play together in 2010 and have studied at The Norwegian Academy of Music in Oslo. In 2016 they received The Lindeman Prize for Young Musicians. Vilde&Inga tour both in Norway and internationally. They regularly play with percussionist Ingar Zach. Aas and Alnæs are also both involved in a new trio with Sidsel Endresen (voice) named Azkadenya. Festivals they have visited include Oslo Jazz Festival, Only Connect Festival of Sound, Kongsberg Jazz Festival, Vinterlyd festival, Ultima– Oslo Contemporary Music Festival and Sound Disobedience. Vilde&Inga’s first album, Makrofauna, was released on ECM March 2014. They will release their second album ‘Silfr’ on the Norwegian label SOFA May 2017.
