We are very happy to finally announce that we are performing Gérard Grisey's masterpiece "Le noir de l'etoile" at the Ultima Festival this year. The concert is in the Jacob Culture Church on September 16th, and we are playing together with the second percussion trio in Oslo, our "big brothers" SISU. This fantastic sextet has never been performed in Norway before, so this is your chance to hear it! In this piece Grisey uses the sound from a pulsar (a neutron star) from outer space, live electronics, and of course tons of percussion instruments! Don't miss it!!
Pinquins has recieved funding from Arts Council Norway for our productions in 2015/2016.
